Sonic the Hedgehog has recently celebrated its 20th birthday, and in honor of the occasion, Sega has decided to release a special edition version of Sonic Generations – the upcoming Sonic game that has Sonic going back in time to meet his younger, classic self, and running through stages inspired by all the previous Sonic games. The special collector’s edition will come with more than just the game though.
Available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (the regular versions will be out for the 3DS), the collector’s edition will pack a commemorative gold ring, a 20 Years of Sonic Art booklet, Sonic figurines, the History of Sonic: Birth of an Icon documentary, and some downloadable content for the game.
No word on pricing or a release date, but the Sonic Generations Collector’s Edition will be released in Europe and Australia. On the bright side – those of us in the US will be able to lay our hands on the regular version of the game on November 1st which is before Europe or Australia gets it.
