It’s been 20 years since Sonic blurred onto the screen and into our collective gaming heart. To celebrate, Sega is releasing Sonic Generations on November 1 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A 3DS version is slated for “Late 2011.”
In Sonic Generations, players will be treated to some nostalgia as Sonic and friends go back in time and meet their younger, fresh-faced counterparts. Watch them team up to save their friends and battle whoever it was that caused this affront to the space-time continuum in beautiful HD. You’ll race through Classic and Modern stages as both versions of the Blue Blur, saving friends and fighting iconic bosses while unlocking more levels and challenges.
If you hold out for the 3DS version, you’ll be treated to exclusive content in the form of new environments, an unlockable “special stage”, a two-player Versus Mode, and the chance to collect bonuses through Street Pass.
