This Day in Gaming History: Sonic & Knuckles

Welcome to the latest installment of This Day in Gaming History! In this segment, we take a nostalgic look back at some of our favorite (or not so favorite) gaming titles and say, Happy Birthday! We also want to know what your best and sometimes worst memories of the title were.

On this day in 1994, Sonic & Knuckles was released for the Sega Genesis.  It was originally supposed to just be an expansion to Sonic the Hedgehog 3, however, it eventually just became a standalone title.  This was the first time, Knuckles The Echidna, was introduced to us as a playable character; replacing our dear friend, Tails.  The game featured the memorable “lock-on technology”, which allowed you to stack another game on top of the Sonic & Knuckles cartridge.  This would give you access to the data from your previous Sonic the Hedgehog 2 or Sonic the Hedgehog 3 saves.
