This sounds like a MUST for TRUE Sonic fans!

Thanks for the heads up! I think I'll get it closer to release.

I thought the part "Celebrating over 20 years as SEGA's official mascot" was kinda funny... because you know, Sonic sucked for most of those years and there really isn't much of celebrate.

Last I heard, Sonic the Hedgehog PS3/360 came out in 2006. "Most" you say?

I wonder if they address Sonic's lack of a major game between 1995 and 1998, and the series' dip in quality in the mid-2000s.

Thanks OP! This slipped under my radar and I love Udon books. FYI for anyone that hasn't pre-ordered a Udon art book, there is a very good chance this will get pushed back to the end of the year or early next year as almost everything I have pre-ordered by Udon gets pushed back by 4-6 months. Just a heads up if someone is getting this for a gift for someone else.

Technically, this isn't by Udon. It's the English version of a French book made by Pix'N Love. Udon seems to just be the publisher for the US version.

By the way, here's a review of the book that pretty much mentions what it contains and has some preview pictures of what's inside.

I pre-ordered last night since I might as well take advantage of it being on sale from $45/$50, especially since $32 is a good deal for a 300 pg. history/art book.

Yup, unless it is a tribute art book, a handbook or comics, Udon books are mostly translations or collections of Japanese (in this case French) art books

They will show the first 3 games on the first ten pages, then the other 290 pages will be pictures of a piece of shit repeated over and over.

Edit: before any huge sonic fans try to bash me over this post, it was a joke.
