Sonic Generations Enters The Modern Era

Sonic Generations is supposed to be a celebration of all things Sonic the Hedgehog over the past 20 years. Unfortunately, there were a few really bad games in that timeframe. With a new trailer SEGA has released, it looks like they want to erase the bad memories in favor of some new ones.

In the trailer, we can see some glimpses of redesigned levels from some of the more recent games. Crisis City can be seen from Sonic 2006, Rooftop Run from Sonic Unleashed and Planet Wisp from Sonic Colors.

For those who didn’t know, while 2006 and Unleashed were pretty darn bad, Sonic Colors is actually more well-received than any other Sonic game in the past 10 years or so. For many, it broke the Sonic Cycle.

What really put me in goosebumps was the last few seconds of the trailer, which revealed the boss that looms over the modern era of the game.

I’ll give you a hint, he’s from a game that is not actually part of the modern era, but it also spawned one of the best theme songs from the post-Genesis games.

Sonic Generations will hit store shelves on November 1, 2011. And I absolutely cannot wait.

What say you, gamers? Do you think SEGA will include the classic “SAAAAY-GUUUHH” intro like the old Genesis games?
