Sonic Moves More Than 1 Billion Games

According to SEGA’s latest annual report, Sonic has now moved roughly 1.14 billion games. That’s a 200 million unit increase since 2018, demonstrating that the blue blur still hasn’t slowed down despite the lack of games.

You might notice I’m saying “move,” instead of “sold.” That’s because this number includes successful free-to-play games like Sonic Dash and Sonic Forces Speed Battle, which have been downloaded 350 million times and 50 million times respectively.

With a movie sequel and 30th anniversary on the horizon, it’ll be interesting to see how much that number grows. Be sure to stay tuned to Sonic Stadium to find out!

  1. So how many units has it Actually “SOLD”? If we remove Dash and Speed Battle numbers this would put it at 600 million units sold, which would put it barely behind Mario as the second best selling video game franchise by far (almost two times that of even Pokemon)

  2. Apologies, when I rushed this up yesterday I neglected to post the source. I’ve added it. We source at Sonic Stadium! Albeit it’s a bit late this time. >_>

    So yeah, sorry.
