Someone has managed to finish Sonic the Hedgehog after 30 years in under nine minutes

Someone has managed to finish Sonic the Hedgehog after 30 years in under nine minutes ...

Although his star has been somewhat down over the years, the blue blur has been a key component in the entertainment industry since the release of Sonic the Hedgehog in 1991. The following year, the sequel was released, which has gone down as one of the finest video games of the 90s. It''s not surprising that people are appreciating it, and a new world record has just been set.

A few days ago, user eandis99 posted a video to YouTube in which they achieved the previous record for speedrunning the original Sonic the Hedgehog, with a time of 8:55. This appears to be the first time someone has managed to complete this classic Genesis game in 30 years. Despite this feat, other sites on the site do indeed show that all other runs have taken nine minutes or more.

This latest run is a spectacular display of skill, which makes use of some in-game bugs. It should be noted that the final time recorded does not take into account elapsed seconds and minutes during non-play scenes, such as loading screens or the end of each level. The community is very well in today and age, and there are a ton of games that are ripe for speedrunning, although it may be necessary to set a new world record.

Sonic is currently developing as a franchise as well as the release of the most recent Sonic 2 movie. However, with the exception of Sonic Frontiers, as well as the introduction of the earlier Sonic 2, Sonic is still continuing to stay in the spotlight, although the original Sonic the Hedgehog entries from the same period will always be considered classics.

Sonic is still a popular Sega character, who, at one point, was pretty much on the same level as Mario in terms of being a video game icon. However, eandis99 believes that reaching below 8:55 is unlikely to happen unless a new strategy is discovered, but it will be interesting to see if anyone can defeat the game even quicker.

In 1991, Sonic the Hedgehog was licensed for Sega Genesis.
