Sega recently announced their plans for Project Sonic 22 – a brand-new game that draws heavily on nostalgia from the classic Sonic the Hedgehog games. This announcement has sent waves of excitement through the gaming community as Sega gives one of its most beloved franchises a modern day makeover.
A Look Back at Sonic’s Early Games
Sonic first made his debut in 1991, when Sega released the original SEGA Genesis game. The game was an instant hit due its tight controls, vibrant visuals, and an unforgettable soundtrack. Over the years, Sega released several more entries in the series, each building upon and perfecting the formula set by its predecessor. Despite being nearly three decades old, these games remain beloved to this day.
The original games featured fast-paced action across bright and colorful levels. Players raced against the clock as they navigated various obstacles and faced off against iconic bosses such as Doctor Robotnik. These classic titles remain some of the best platformers ever created.
