On November 13, a Reddit user by the name of Night, also known as hoybhoyb on Twitter, posted an animated image of what they believed to be the title screen of Sonic Adventure would look like it was released on an older Sega console instead of the final Sega console. The post received more than 40 upvotes within the first six hours of posting, and feedback has been positive so far. In their rendition, Night released his work as a GIF and showed off Sonic’s iconic pose from the Sonic Adventure cover art. In the animation, Sonic’s sprite moved along the bottom side of the series’ classic logo from the Sega Genesis era. The logo animation then moved to the right side of the screen, with the nighttime rendition of the Emerald Coast serving as the backdrop.

Although Sega says there are no plans to remaster Sonic Adventure are currently taking place, the fact remains that Sonic Adventure laid the foundation for future games. Sonic Adventure was a game of firsts for the greatest Sonic series, some lasting longer than others. Sonic Adventure featured the series’ first recorded dub, featured Sonic’s “modern” design which featured longer limbs and green eyes compared to his “classic” look, brought in supporting actors like Amy Rose and Big the Cat in the foreground, and granted series antagonist Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik his eponymous nickname.

However, even with a strong Dreamcast launch lineup that included Sonic Adventure, Sega’s final console didn’t last long on store shelves. Although they were the first to come out of the sixth generation of consoles, the Dreamcast faltered once the PlayStation 2 was released in late 2000. The Dreamcast was discontinued in 2001, and Sega left the console business for good. Although the Dreamcast failed, the console’s legacy lives on throughout the Sonic Adventure games and their fans.

Sonic Adventure is available now on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
