Sega's mascot, the fastest hedgehog in the East and West, has turned 18 today in Europe and North America. In Europe this makes him entirely legal to guzzle down booze and play with spiky bush.

On June 23rd 1991, Sonic hit the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis, where he sped onto a wave of success as a anti hero to the great Mario of Nintendo fame. Since November 2007, the first game has sold over 4 million copies worldwide with the entire franchise selling over 50 million as of late last year.

Birthdays are a great time to take stock of your life, to see how everything has panned out, I wonder what the spiky one must be thinking today on his Birthday.

Have your say.

I feel like I've been repeatedly raped by Sonic Team, so I am all for a new game in the classic style. At the very least SEGA should make HD versions of the games available, as part of a HD collection, or as individual games via DLC

Happy birthday Sonic! I haven't really noticed you for about 8 years though. Why have you gotten fat? What....are you not shaving?!

Cool, will add that to the OP.

Has anyone got any cool Sonic the Hedgehog related stuff already?



This is one item of note, released on his 10th Birthday in Japan for supposedly 2 days only on 2001/6/ 23-24.

Happy birthday Sonic, it's such a shame things have gone downhill for you lately.
