List of Sonic the Hedgehog video games

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game series created by Yuji Naka. It is published by Sega, with entries developed by Sega, Sonic Team, Dimps, SIMS Co., Ltd., BioWare, and Sumo Digital. The series debuted in 1991 with the video game, Sonic the Hedgehog, released for the Mega Drive video game console (known as the Genesis in North America). Most Sonic the Hedgehog games have either been platform games or released for Sega consoles and handhelds dating from the Genesis to the current generation of video game consoles. However, some of the original games were ported into versions on third-party home consoles and developed by several companies. As of February 2013, the series has collectively sold over 85 million copies worldwide across both the platform games and spinoffs.[1]

Most of the games in the franchise are platform games, although the series also includes other genres such as racing video games, fighting games, action-adventure games, role-playing video games, and sports games. Each game focuses on the titular protagonist Sonic the Hedgehog, an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog. It also features a large cast of other characters such as Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, Miles "Tails" Prower, Knuckles the Echidna, Amy Rose, Shadow the Hedgehog, and the Chao creatures. The latest game in the series is Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom, an endless runner game for Android and iOS devices and is the sequel to Sonic Dash.
