Sonic the Hedgehog was once the big challenger of Mario, back in 1991 during the 16Bit “Console Wars” between Nintendo and Sega 🙂

There was a much bigger focus on speed in the Sonic the Hedgehog games due to Sonic being able to run very fast.

Besides a lot of direct sequels, Sonic got also many spin-off games including Sonic Spinball, and later the Sonic and Sega Racing games.

Today there are over 20 Sonic The Hedgehog Games, in some he is even directly competing with Mario now like in the Super Smash bros. Series since Super Smash Bros. Brawl and the Mario & Sonic Olympic Games.
