15th Anniversary Sonic the Hedgehog Exhibition

Post by big_smile »

Entarbran, publishers of a number of Japanese video gaming magazines including Famitsu, recently held an exhibition in Tokyo to commemorate 15 years of Sonic the Hedgehog. The event took place on the 3rd of December and was sponsored by Sega.

Unlike most Sega related events, the exhibition was limited to 100 attendees, which were chosen via a prize draw.

The event contained the usual assortment of merchandise, contests, freebies and playable demos. Yuji Naka was present to give a talk about the history of series, which suggests that he is still acting as figurehead for the franchise despite having parted from Sonic Team. Other guests included Masato Nakamura, Shun Nakamura and editors from various Famitsu publications.
