Sonic made his arcade game debut in Wad Mobile, a racing car game and the first Sonic game called Sonic the Hedgehog (Game Gear, Mega Drive/Genesis and Master System; 1991) released on the 23 June 1991 which that day counted as Sonic’s birthday in recent years. From 1992-1995 many Sonic were made in the USA becuase the Sonic Team crew had more problems at the Japanese Sonic Team HQ at SEGA Enterprises Ltd. (SEGA Corporation since November 2000). But since 1995 Sonic Team went back to Japan from Hayward, USA where SEGA of America Inc. was based and started to make games in Japan more than in the USA.
