Sonic's 'Through the Ages' trailer is pure joy. Bonus: TAILS!

Take a quick spin through twenty years' worth of Hedgehog history

In accordance with my geeky journalistic duties, I was more than ready to tear this 20th Anniversary legacy trailer a new asshole had Sega dared to not included a particular Sonic game. But damn! Today’sHedgehog lovefest is a remarkably thorough zip through Sonic’s (mostly) proud history. They even went so far as to acknowledgethe atrocious 2006 reboot,the dumbass Werehog game, andthat first Wii title no one remembers.

Sure, I would’ve liked to have seen a nod to Sonic R, however, that would open up a ridiculous fanboy disussion and Ireally would prefer notto have to acknowledge whether or notthat one game with the swordis part of the "Main" series. And there’s no time to debate that now, as Sega’s also sent over your first look at a new classic leveland TAILS!

Above: One of these Tails is blatantly better than the other. Can you guess which one?!

If that weren’t enough to send folksinto a fangasm fit (or a needless argument over pupil color, your choice) Sega’s also unveiled the first look at Chemical Plant Zone, which I personally associate with havingone of the finest musical themesthis little medium of ours has ever produced.

I implore you tohead hereto see more shots of the famous factory in both 2 and 3D. And I'd expect more Sonic fan service to be announced at Comic-Con, which we head out to tomorrow. Come say "Hi!"
