At a recent Sonic Generations panel during Paris Games Week, Sonic Team's Takashi Iizuka revealed that the original Sonic the Hedgehog will be available in the upcoming nostalgic platformer as a full unlockable game. 

Sonic Team also showed off the game's level hub, which is a scrolling selection of doors containing levels and littered with Sonic's furry friends. Don't worry -- their inclusion seems minimal and not too horrific. 

Sonic 1 is a cool bonus but it's a shame they couldn't include all the Genesis titles. Of course, by "couldn't" I mean "didn't want to" because SEGA could easily have tossed those in, the cheeky bastards.  

[Thanks Isshak!]

[Edit: Jesus fucking Christ that last paragraph was a flippant remark and not intended as a slamming indictment against Sega for fuck's cunting sake.]

Sonic Generations 'Unleashed' mod is a great idea

Sonic Unleashed had a lot of potential, and some individually terrific stages, but the overall project was a bit of a letdown. SEGA wouldn't perfect the 3D Sonic gameplay -- after so many attempts -- until Sonic Generations,...more

Review: Sonic Generations

Sonic the Hedgehog has not had the most celebrated of careers. While his early games are regarded as iconic and influential, an amazing run of mostly bad games in latter years reduced SEGA's mascot to little more than an irre...more

Forward to the Sky looks like a fun platforming romp

Every once in a while a game will come along that reminds me of the Dreamcast era, filled to the brim with great looking games like Skies of Arcadia. Forward to the Sky looks like one such title, an action platformer that ju...more

Review: Shantae and the Pirate's Curse
