Hey there, everyone! June 23, 2016 marks the twenty fifth anniversary for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise! That's right folks, it's the silver year for Sonic and that means he's been around for a fourth of a century. That's crazy to think about!
So what are your plans for today? How are you going to celebrate Sonic's 25th? Me? Well, besides waking up at 12pm because I'm cool (and it's summer), I'll probably be editing the wiki or playing some Sonic games before rage quitting or getting bored.

There were rumours about a certain blue hedgehog coming to the Lego related video game called Lego Dimensions...
...But now, it's confirmed! Sonic will be making a playable appearance in the game!
He's seen at the end of this video, grabbing a ring before Golem could. Now THAT'S how you make an entrance!
He'll be joining with other characters from various franchises such as Adventure Time, Teen Titans, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, and many more!
