Today marks the 18th anniversary of our favorite speedy smart-alick, Sonic the Hedgehog! While Sonic the Hedgehog was released 18 years ago today for the Mega Drive/Genesis, in the mobile gaming world it wasn't until December 28th, 1991 that the Master System incarnation of Sonic 1 hit the Game Gear. You can count on The Nomad Junkyard to not only celebrate today, but also the upcoming mobile anniversary. Trust me, I have something planned.
In other anniversary news, Shadow the Hedgehog and Rouge the Bat share an 8th anniversary today with the release of Sonic Adventure 2. But few fail to remember that the President, his secretary, Gerald and Maria ALSO turn 8 today! Forgettable supporting characters, we salute you!
