Today marks the 30th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. Yes, three decades ago, the blue blur got his start on the Sega Genesis in North America.
To celebrate this very special occasion, Nintendo’s all-star brawler Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be hosting a special Sonic-themed spirit board event where you can earn more gold. It starts this weekend and will last for three days.
Nintendo has also released a new Smash Bros. spirit set for NSO members – it contains one random spirit of a legendary attacker and one random spirit of an ace supporter.
This isn’t the only Sonic event happening right now – Minecraft has just dropped a new Sonic DLC update which seems to be themed around Sonic Adventure 2.
Will you be participating in this upcoming Smash event? How are you planning on celebrating Sonic’s anniversary? Tell us down in the comments.
