Twenty years ago, Sonic the Hedgehog made his first appearance on the Genesis. To celebrate, Sega has released a demo for its upcoming platforming throwback, Sonic Generations. However, it'll only be available for the next twenty days.

Sega officially took the wraps off of Sonic Generations today, a game that doubles as a 20th anniversary retrospective of the hedgehog with "tude." The game is set for a holiday release this year on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
