Sonic wins a Golden Joystick Award

In the 29th Golden Joystick Awards, Sonic took home the first “outstanding contribution” award in the history of the Golden Joystick Awards.

“We are so excited that Sonic has been awarded the first-ever Outstanding Contribution Award at the Golden Joysticks,” said Sonic brand director David Corless.

“In today’s ever changing market it’s rare for a character to last for 5 years – let alone 20. And that’s testament to the popularity and longevity of our blue blurred mascot. Since the days of the Mega Drive – he’s appeared on most consoles and handhelds going and also made the successful leap into the digital space. This award couldn’t have come at a better time as we celebrate Sonic’s 20th Anniversary and with the amazing Sonic Generations just around the corner. Here’s to the next 20!”

It looks like the year is shaping up more and more for True Blue.

    The internet is amazing.
