    Sonic Generations, known as Sonic Generations: Shiro no Jikuu (ソニック ジェネレーションズ 白の時空) in Japan, is a platformer commemorating Sonic the Hedgehog's 20th anniversary. Developed by Sonic Team for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PCs, the game allows players to experience both "classic" and "modern" styles of Sonic gameplay.

    A version of Sonic Generations for the Nintendo 3DS was developed by Dimps alongside the main edition for home game consoles.

    The original Sonic the Hedgehog is included as a bonus game in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.[31]

    Story

    The story begins with the Sonic the Hedgehog of the Classic Era going out for a run through Green Hill Zone, when suddenly there was a tremor. The silent hedgehog disregards this at first, but then catches a glimpse of a mysterious entity emerging in the sky.

    20 years later, Sonic's friends are seen in a field preparing a surprise birthday party with Tails in charge of organising things, and Knuckles, Amy, Cream, Rouge, Blaze and the Chaotix helping out. Sonic himself eventually arrives to witness everyone all set up and waiting for him. Tails explains to Sonic that it's difficult to surprise him, but the hedgehog assures him that they got him this time. The fox then gives Sonic a special birthday treat: A specially-wrapped chili dog. Right after taking his first bite, however, Sonic's chili dog was blown away by a mysterious entity known as the Time Eater, who appears in the sky and proceeds to suck all of Sonic's friends into portals. Sonic attempts to stop the entity from doing this, but is swatted away and knocked unconscious.

    Sonic regains consciousness to find himself in a mysterious void known as the White Space, and in this void he sees a strange landmark that transports him to Green Hill. Upon blasting through the classic zone, Tails is brought back to life, now traumatized by the experience of "floating without a body in a weird black limbo". Sonic feels that the place he was in seemed awfully familiar, though Tails points out some strange-looking buildings up ahead, which Sonic promptly checks out. As Tails watches him go, he notices Classic Sonic pass by.

    Sonic goes through Chemical Plant and Sky Sanctuary, rescuing Amy and Knuckles in the process. In the Chemical Plant, Sonic and Tails take notice to how familiar everything looks, with Tails feeling nervous from looking at the Mega Mack.

    Soon, both Sonics find themselves in a dark hallway full of mirrors, and then notice each other, seeing each other as strange reflections in the mirror and mimicking each others moves. As they look at each other, they suddenly hear the echoing voice of Dr. Eggman taunting them, and Classic Sonic storms ahead in a flash. Modern Sonic then realizes that the other Sonic was not his reflection, but literally another Sonic, and tries to keep up with him, only to be shut out. Behind the door, Classic Sonic defeats the Death Egg Robot and then tries to pull Eggman out of the wreckage, only for the Time Eater to show up and take Eggman away, much to the doctor's horror.

    Classic Sonic returns to the White Space to meet up with his present-day self, as well as Tails and another version of Tails that shows up out of nowhere. Both of them deduce that the presence of temporal doubles as well as the places and enemies from the past mean they are travelling through time and space. As the Sonics see the Time Eater roam to the next area, the two hedgehogs decide to team up to stop it, eventually rescuing Cream, Rouge and Espio and defeating Shadow.

    The two Tailses work out more on what is going on, and learn that as the Time Eater goes through time, it sucks the life and color out of various places and leaves them in the White Space, but as the Sonics go through them, they restore life and color, so the hedgehogs have to work fast. Sonic then finds himself back at Station Square where he goes up against Perfect Chaos again.

    Upon emerging victorious, Sonic and the other three notice that one of the Chaos Emeralds has found its way into the White Space, but it is powerless, and the Time Eater cannot touch it. Seeing that the Chaos Emeralds have helped them so many times in the past, they decide to collect them by working fast. By going through the remaining areas and rescuing Blaze, Vector and Charmy as well as defeating Silver, the red Chaos Emerald is restored, and Modern Sonic challenges his past self to a race to it, beating him to it with an Air Boost.

    Sonic then goes through a gate that leads him to a showdown with Dr. Eggman in the Egg Dragoon, and emerges victorious. Tails and his past self find it strange that Eggman would be here despite having been kidnapped by the Time Eater back on board the Death Egg, and at that point the Time Eater shows up to kidnap Eggman again.

    Eventually, the Sonics collect the remaining Chaos Emeralds and soon arrive at the Time Eater, only to discover that Dr. Eggman, along with his past self, is controlling it (as suspected earlier by Vector). After his recent defeat in Sonic Colors, Eggman discovers the primordial form of the Time Eater in deep space, and decided to use its properties of manipulating time and space to erase his past defeats. However, he realized he would not be able to do this alone, so he asked his past self to help him with modifying the Time Eater for their use. The two of them proceed to smash the two hedgehogs and prepare to finish them off for good, but then all of Sonic's friends show up to give their encouragement, allowing the Sonics to become their Super forms and destroy the Time Eater.

    With the Time Eater's defeat, time resets to when Sonic's chili dog was blown away, allowing him to finish it while it was still warm, and allowing the birthday party to continue with the added attendance of Classic Sonic, Classic Tails, Shadow and Silver. Inspired by his future self, Classic Sonic even attempts to do the Air Boost. A time portal leading back to the past appears, with Classic Sonic and Tails going into it, and everybody else saying farewell to them, with Modern Sonic telling Classic Sonic to "enjoy his future".

    After the credits, we see that Dr. Eggman and his past self are now stranded in White Space, which is now completely empty as all the places have been returned to their respective places in space-time. The two argue over the plan they came up with, even questioning if they ever win.

    Gameplay

    Sonic Generations allows players to control both the pre-Sonic Adventure and post-Adventure designs for Sonic the Hedgehog and features remastered levels from Sonic's previous adventures. The game is divided into three eras: the Classic Era (pre-1998), the Dreamcast Era (1998–2005), and the Modern Era (2005 onwards). "Classic Sonic" plays through the levels from a 2D (or 2.5D) "classic" perspective; whereas "Modern Sonic" tackles them in a 3D and sometimes 2D perspective, similar to those of Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Colours.

    The Classic gameplay style is strictly 2D/2.5D. Sonic controls more like his Sega Mega Drive counterpart, including his ability to use the Spin Dash and Spin Attack to battle enemies.

    The Modern gameplay style takes place in 3D, with occasional transitions to 2.5D. This gameplay style is akin to that developed in Sonic's more recent titles Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Colors, where you use the Sonic Boost and the Homing Attack to advance.

    History

    Development

    Sonic Retro emblem.svg Main article: Sonic Generations/Development

    The game was first announced in a teaser video posted by Sega on 7 April 2011 on Sonic's official Facebook page.[32] The game was announced for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and was scheduled for a 2011 release. An announcement of Sonic Generations for the Nintendo 3DS later appeared in an issue of the Nintendo Power magazine, paired with a November 2011 release date for all platforms. At E3 2011, SEGA revealed a trailer revealing City Escape from Sonic Adventure 2, with a further trailer appearing in mid-August detailing other levels. On 11 October 2011, Sega confirmed that Sonic Generations would also appear on the Steam platform for PC.

    A fourteen-day demo was released to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consumers on 23 June 2011, the official date of Sonic's 20th anniversary. A second demo was released on 18 October on Xbox Live, 19 October on the European PlayStation Network, and 25 October on the PlayStation Network in North America.

    In 2010, prior to the game's official announcement, an anniversary game titled Sonic Anniversary was announced for Wii, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, and PlayStation 3, with negotiations for an Xbox 360 version in the works.[33]
