It is near the stroke of midnight on the east coast of the United States of America. Unless you happened to live in Austin, Texas, the moment is now here. Sonic Generations will be live before you know it. Every reimagined level, each remixed track are waiting for your gaming pleasure. Sure, if you live Europe you have a bit longer to wait…well, unless you happen to live in France. Which is apparently the Best Buy of Europe.
The below video has spoilers only if you don’t want to know track listings and see inside books of art. And yes, it is in French, so if you are morally against such things, be sure to hit the mute button.
Normally this isn’t the type of video I’d put on the front page, but because of its continent-specific nature, and because it is part of the 20th Anniversary[tm] celebration, it only seems fair to throw it up here this one time. The collection itself looks as nice as the pictures implied, and how can you say no to two smiling Sonic’s looking up at you?
Though the documentary hasn’t been screened by outside eyes, the track listing celebrating the 20 Year of Sonic Music has been revealed, covering just about every major game in the series, with more than a fair representation of the spin-offs. The most glaring omission? Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic 2, more than likely because of the music right issues involved. But after the release of the fantastic soundtrack to those two games, I think we can let this one slide.
