Longtime Sonic fans are looking forward to Sonic Generations finally breaking the Sonic Cycle, showing how SEGA’s mascot has evolved. With carefully crafted levels specially designed for the two different generations of the hedgehog, everything is perfectly planned. That is, until hackers swapped the classic Sonic with the modern one, creating an entirely different play experience for an entirely different generation.

YouTube user PegLegJimmy has hacked Sonic Generations to swap the two charactersâ€™ levels, months before its release date in the fall. With one style designed around meticulous planning and the other around breakneck speed, it is interesting to see how vastly different each character plays out of their element.
However, the relative speed of this modification and the lack of cease-and-desist letters from SEGA might indicate that this is an official feature in the final version. Looks like weâ€™ll find out the truth behind the matter this fall.
A hardcore gamer with a thing for fighting games and all things SEGA, his wide collection of game controllers and cosplay outfits just proves his fandom.
