Happy Birthday, Sonic!

Jun 24, 2010

Was it really 19 years ago that we were first introduced to the spikey, blue protagonist via the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis? It seems like only yesterday!

To celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 19th anniversary, Sega have launched a video contest where two lucky winners, one from the UK and one from the US, will be treated to a trip for two to visit

“In honor of the nineteenth anniversary of our favorite hedgehog, we wanted to find a special way to thank Sonic’s fans throughout the years,” said Haruki Satomi, Executive Vice President of SEGA of America. “We think this contest is a great way to give fans a chance to express their creativity, enthusiasm and support for Sonic.”

Over the course of the next two weeks contestants can upload their videos showing their appreciation and love for Sonic the Hedgehog, to YouTube and then submit them for judging on the official Sonic 4 Contest Page (www.sonicthehedgehog4.com/contest). Videos will be judged on creativity, entertainment and effort and the ten best will be chosen by SEGA and showcased on the official Sonic the Hedgehog 4 website.

Sonic fans and the entire SEGA community will then choose their favorite to win either the grand prize trip to Tokyo, or a prize of a 32 GB iPod Touch®.

For more information on the contest, head on over to the official contest website.
