On this day June 23rd 2020, Sonic The Hedgehog celebrates his 29th birthday.
To commemorate the occasion, Sonic’s creator Yuji Naka posted a special message on Twitter wishing his character a Happy Birthday, as well as sharing his thoughts looking back on Sonic’s history.
Check it out below, with a translation by Pushdustin:
Happy birthday Sonic!!

Looking back I’m filled with memories as I was the one who originally decided that his birthday would be June 23rd. By pure coincidence today Sonic Nanoblocks arrived at my house.
This week the Sonic Movie will come out in Japan.
Thank you to all the fans who have loved the Sonic series for such a long time.
