Sonic the Hedgehog is now 20 years old. To celebrate, Sega is bringing two Sonics together in Sonic Generations for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. To sweeten the deal, Sonic gets a rare "collector's edition" bundle, full of collectible tchotchkes.
Sadly for North American and Japanese Sonic enthusiasts, this special edition version of the November-due game is for Europe and Australia only. Our PAL pals will get one collectible figurine immortalising classic and modern variations on Sonic; a commemorative gold ring; the "20 Years of Sonic Art" booklet; and a 20th anniversary soundtrack collection. See visual details in the gallery above.
The CE also includes the "History of Sonic: Birth of an Icon" documentary, an "exclusive collection of interviews and footage charting Sonic's life from inception through to becoming one of the most iconic characters in video game history" according to Sega.
Add to that some fancy packaging, some downloadable content and you've got The Works. Sonic Generations goes to Europe and Australia on November 3, but at least those of us in America get it earlier (November 1).
