Sonic the Hedgehog 3 was released 19 years ago, February 2nd, 1994, in the U.S. Because the game was released on that particular day, its publisher, Sega, says the second of February is “Hedgehog Day.” Via its official blog, Sega yesterday said that, although it’s not ready to go into any specifics, great Sonic ‘stuff’ are coming this year. Although this is just a rumor for now, sources who claim to be close to Sega said that a new Sonic game for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS will be revealed this month.
