Sonic Team is a Japanese video game developer for Sega, and was originally established as Sega AM8 in 1988. The studio released their first game, Sonic the Hedgehog, in 1991, and changed their name to match the name of their mascot. In addition to the Sonic series, the company has developed other games for Sega, such as Nights into Dreams (1996) and Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg (2003).[1][2]

The 1991 release of Sonic the Hedgehog is considered one of the most important moments in video game history, as it propelled the Sega Genesis's sales and Sega displaced Nintendo as the leading video game company.[3] Some of Sonic Team's games, such as the original Sonic titles and Nights, are considered by critics some of the best video games ever made.[4][5]
