Happy Sonic 2sday
For Americans, November is a significant month of the year due to Thanksgiving. It is a time to be grateful for what one has and to appreciate all the good things in one’s life. It is a time of food, family, and fun. But for gamers, the end of November may have a different significance. Yesterday was November 24th, and for those of us who were alive during the early ’90s, we may remember it as a day of great significance in video game history. Because back in 1992, November 24th was also known as Sonic 2sday. It was the day that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was released, and it was a day that shook up the gaming industry.
For many people during this gaming generation, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is their favourite game in the franchise. It took a lot of what was in the original Sonic the Hedgehog and polished it to an even greater experience.
When Sonic 2 went on sale and it was a roaring success, Sonic 2 became one of the best-selling Sega Genesis games. When the excitement for Sonic 2sday made the news, several executives at Nintendo of America said something to the effect of, “Sega has stolen Christmas.” People went out in droves to get the Genesis to play this game, and it proved that Nintendo was not the only company in the video game market.
The quality and success of Sonic 2 helped cement Sega and Genesis as a contender against Nintendo and the SNES. This was the start of when Sonic was getting shot up into the ranks of video game superstars.
And so, as it is the 30th Anniversary of this day and as Sonic is within our licencing portfolio, we would like to wish all Sonic fans a very happy Sonic 2sday.
