There have been all sorts of video game anniversary celebrations this year, but one of the highlights of the lot would have to be Sonic the Hedgehog's 30th anniversary.

Earlier this year Sega held a special Livestream announcing new games and the return of some old ones, and following this was a very special 30th-anniversary symphony - featuring iconic Sonic songs from the past three decades and even a performance by Crush 40.

If you're wanting to relive all of these special moments, the Sonic 30th Anniversary Symphony Album is now available on all major digital music services. This includes Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Line Music, AWA, YouTube Music, KKBOX, RecoChoku and Mora.

Of course, if you want - you could also rewatch the 2-hour performance over on the official Sonic YouTube channel:

Sonic Colors Ultimate also got a new vinyl soundtrack release earlier this month, thanks to a partnership between Sega and iam8bit. It features 21 tracks in total, including the game's theme song 'Reach for the Stars', and is available in two versions. You can learn more about it in our previous post.

More recently, the Green Hill Zone song has been given lyrics by Masato Nakamura and 'Dreams Come True' band member, Miwa Yoshida. Nakamura was the composer of the classic Sonic games and is the co-founder of this J-Pop band.
