Sonic Says: “Did You Know…?”

Sonic the Hedgehog celebrates his 20th anniversary this year, but the eponymous 1991 classic was not his first appearance in the world of gaming.

Oh no, instead Sonic appeared in a cameo role in the arcade game Rad Mobile as a cuddly toy handing from the rear view mirror swinging around as he travelled at high speeds. Granted it wasn’t the most dignified of débuts but as it was a cameo we can forgive Sega for hanging their creation in such  way. Cameo roles would follow in a number of games including, and not limited to, Daytona USA, Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, Rub Rabbits, Phantasy Star Online, Crusader of Centy, Streets of Race III and Christmas NiGHTS.
