90s babies that spent way too much time in front of the TV playing their Sega Genesis know exactly who Sonic the Hedgehog is.

Back in July of last year, fans learned that this special occasion will introduce new pieces of digital content, events, licensed products, etc. But most importantly, new games are also on the way.
