Watch the Sonic Central 30th anniversary stream here

Sega has a lot of Sonic the Hedgehog news ahead and you won't want to miss any of it.


It feels like just yesterday that Sonic was going fast and doing what Nintendidn't. But, this is the year that the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise turns 30 years old. Sega is celebrating the birth of their mascot with a slew of major announcements, all taking place during a special stream called Sonic Central.

Today's Sonic Central stream will begin at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET. It can be seen live on the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitch channel, YouTube channel, or through the YouTube embed above. There's no indication of how long the Sonic Central event will run, but if you miss it, the full VOD will be available to check out afterwards.

There have been a lot of rumors, but nothing concrete regarding what's being shown during the Sonic Central stream. As noted earlier this week, viewers should keep in mind that Sega originally had something to show off for roughly a full year and has been sitting on it due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It's a safe bet that whatever the company wanted to show off will be officially revealed today. What that is, exactly, is uncertain.

The Sonic Central stream will begin in just a few hours. We'll be watching it here at Shacknews, so be sure to join us for the latest news and announcements.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
