The Blue Blur has had his ups and downs, but on the whole, he's a remarkable icon with a rich history extending across two decades. Earlier this year, Sega and French videogame book publisher Pix'n Love -- responsible for several high-quality Nintendo history books -- teamed up to collect Sonic's journey into one massive tome. This September, UDON will be bringing the book to American shores.

The History of Sonic the Hedgehog is a 300-page hardcover beast that tracks Sonic's inception through the recent Sonic Generations. It covers every single game he's ever appeared in, including crossovers and cameos. There's also plenty of official artwork to gawk in addition to interesting nuggets of information, like how the ribbon logo from the original Sonic's title screen was conceived.

The History of Sonic the Hedgehog will retail for $49.99, but as is usual with UDON releases, you're smarter bet is to hop onto Amazon, where the book is currently a much more reasonable $31.81.
