Many announcements were made during the Sonic Central event of Sega, which was organized around Sonic’s 30th birthday.
Our blue hedgehog friend Sonic the Hedgehog is getting old. Almost older than our many young gamer friends, Sonic’s 30th birthday celebrations were held by Sega at the Sonic Central event. While the event wasn’t very enlightening, Sega at least confirmed the previously rumored Sonic Colors remaster and retro Sonic collection.
