SEGA’s mascot Sonic the Hedgehog will be celebrating his 30th anniversary in 2021 and the Sonic Team has big plans to celebrate the occasion. Game Informer had the opportunity to chat with the head of Sonic Team, who as you know, is Takashi Iizuka. Mr. Iizuka told them that it is going to be a big year for the spiky blue hedgehog and the company is hoping to surprise fans. He added that preparations are now underway.
“2017 was a big year for Sonic,” Iizuka says. “The next big year for Sonic is 2021. That’s the 30-year anniversary for Sonic. We are now preparing.”
I told him that in past anniversary years, like 2011 where we got Sonic Generations, Sega released big milestone games to mark the occasion. When I ask if that might be the case for 2021, he chuckles and lets out a soft, “Maybe.”Game Informer
