Sonic the Hedgehog was first released back in June 23, 1991. The first games in the franchise were side-scrolling platformers but the succeeding titles went on to expand into other genres like fighting, role-playing, racing, sports and action-adventure.
There are now 36 Sonic the Hedgehog video games across platforms, the most recent of which is Sonic Runners, an endless runner for Android and iOS devices. Sonic Runners was launched in 2015 but unfortunately met mixed reviews from critics. Sega announced in May of this year that the game's servers will be shutting down in July.
Aside from getting the Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Humble Bundle deal, fans can also celebrate by joining the Sonic 25th Anniversary Party, which will be held on July 22 at the House of Blues in San Diego, California. Ticket-holders will not only enjoy limited-edition merchandise but will also be treated to an exclusive first look at the future of Sonic, according to the organizers.
Update: Humble Bundle now also has Comics Bundle featuring $291-worth of Sonic the Hedgehog comics.
