Yesterday we learnt from The Sonic Stadium that Greg Martin had died in May 2013. He was best known for designing the American and some European box arts of classic Sonic titles. He also designed box arts for other videogame franchises (inc. Pac-Man). In addition to box arts, he also did illustrations of Sonic in various Western Sonic the Hedgehog advertisements.
Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed now heads to Android and iOS. The game will feature Ryo Hazuki from Shenmue, however it is unknown how many other platforms he will be on.
The Sonic Zone wishes you a happy new year. I hope 2014 becomes a good year for Sonic with lots of stuff on this new year, starting with the release of the new Super Smash Bros. game.
