The Sonic the hedgehog 30th Anniversary Symphony has appeared on Apple Music and iTunes, with more streaming platforms expected to follow next week.
Originally performed in June as part of a series of events celebrating 30 years since the original’s release Sonic the hedgehog game on SEGA Genesis, the Symphony has seen orchestral soundtrack revamps over the years.
It has since been available to watch on Youtube, but earlier today (September 18) it was announced that the hour and 46 minute event is now available for listening through Apple Music and iTunes.
During the performance, iconic themes from levels such as Green Hill Zone, Marble Zone and Star Light Zone were shown.

However, not everything was clear to the hedgehog. Recently, Sega said it was somewhat “premature” to reveal its next Sonic the hedgehog Game.
Initially teased at the end of a Sonic Central livestream in May, the clip didn’t reveal much but still, in an interview with the Japanese website 4player (Translated by Nintendo lover), Sonic team chief Takashi Iizuka admitted that the team may have taken the plunge by revealing the new game too soon.
“We haven’t announced any new action game for the Sonic series since Sound forces, and that got the fans worried, ”Iizuka said. “Although it was a bit premature, I wanted to at least take the occasion of the 30th anniversary to announce that a whole new title was in development.”
Also celebrating Sonic’s 30th birthday, J-Pop’s group Dreams Come True (which stars the songwriter of Sonic the hedgehog Masato Nakamura on bass) recently released a new song called ‘Tsugino Seno! De – On The Green Hill ‘, which not only turns the iconic theme of the original game’s first zone into a four-minute song, but also gives it lyrics, with vocals sung by Miwa Yoshida.
