SEGA Shows Off The Logo For Sonic’s 25th Anniversary

Believe it or not, it is Sonic the Hedgehog’s 25th anniversary this year. Fans are expecting big things, but with SEGA’s big shift to mobile and PC some fans are undoubtedly worried. However, the company hasn’t abandoned consoles, so hopefully we shall get a Sonic the Hedgehog video game that lives up to fan’s expectations. The company shared the logo for the 25th anniversary on Twitter and you can check that out below.

  1. Sega better not mess this up. Rise of Lyric wasn’t made by Sonic Team and the last game they made was Lost World, which was alright but before that there were Colors and Generations which were great games. All they need to do is bring back the boost gameplay, I can assure that a game like that would bring Sonic back to form.

        1. They’ll probably ignore the Game Gear Sonic titles again. Izuka didn’t add any levels from them in Sonic Generations 3DS since he didn’t like those titles.

  2. i want a good game.
    like generations, but longer.
    i dont want bugs.
    i dont want 3D.

    i want a good game.

    2016 is the year of quite a few multiples of 5 anniversaries for video game franchises & sub-franchises. Zelda (30), Sonic (25), Mario Tennis (15), Paper Mario (15), Resident Evil (20), Animal Crossing (15), Dragon Quest (30), Donkey Kong (35), Metroid (30), Adventure Island (30), Castlevania (30), Tomb Raider (20), Pikmin (15), & Kid Icarus (30) and these are of just the franchises I’m interested in or have played a game of. Of notable mention, Twilight Princess is having it’s 10th anniversary. A shame one of them will get crapped on this year, some got crapped on last year, & some aren’t even getting an anniversary celebration at all. Crapped on this year: Metroid with that filthy casual, kiddy bullshit trash Federation Farce. Crapped on last year: Mario Tennis with Ultra Trash’s barebone release & Animal Crossing with a Hasbro board game made into a video game. Ones getting ignored for one reason or another: Paper Mario because why make another Paper Mario for it’s anniversary when making a Mario & Luigi game with Paper Mario as a character is so much better (sarcasm), Donkey Kong, Adventure Island which hasn’t seen a game in what has most likely been decades at this point, Castlevania, Tomb Raider because Square Enix doesn’t seem to give a damn about the franchise’s storied past because they aren’t even the original owner, & Kid Icarus because Sakurai is just being Sakurai with being a egotistical control freak & not properly training the teams he works with so they can pick up the slack for when he’s not capable. But I digress before this rant carries on… Oh, too late. lol

    1. And last year was F-Zero’s 25th anniversary. Did we get anything? Nope, nadda, not even a mumble. Not since 2004. I think Fire Emblem also turns 25 this year (or could have been last year, not 100% sure).

      I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again- the only two franchises that Nintendo seems to actually care about anymore are Mario and Zelda, and if it wasn’t showing before, it sure as hell is now. We got Super Mario Maker last year almost to the day of the original SMB’s release in 1985, and this year Zelda U finally hits the console after heavy hints of it being the most ambitious Zelda yet, right on time for its 30th anniversary, and no doubt in my mind, just like with Skyward Sword before it in its 25th year, they’re going to drop reminders everywhere about it. And, as you pointed out, TP will be 10 this year, so the HD remake is probably in reverence to that.

      For Metroid’s 30th, they serve us a game that does not look nor play like Metroid nor bear its protagonist in any prominent way (and gods help the devs if Samus looks just as Mega Blocks-ed as those troopers). …Although they have been eerily silent about FF ever since E3. Like, more than usual, so who knows what’s going on back there.

      Let’s hope Sonic doesn’t share the same fate.

        Samus having a prominent role is the least problematic of the game, though, so I can forgive it for that. Everything else, burn it! Burn it all!
