Sega has revealed brand new artwork commemorating Sonic the Hedgehog’s 31st birthday. He’s gradually getting up there in age. Moreover, his birth date is June 23, 2022, so this preemptive showing is a tad odd.
Green Hill Zone from I believe its Sonic Generations iteration is displayed in the background with festive balloons. Sonic is prominently showcased with a birthday cake, though his model has received some flack, with his arm specifically being the primary subject of discontent. Admittedly, it definitely looks somewhat off, but not incredibly so.
