On Monday, the game list for the upcoming 2020 Awesome Games Done Quick was released. Don’t call it a comeback, but after a few cycles of a Sonic drought, the hedgehog appears to be back in earnest for the January charity marathon.
That can, in part, be attributed to a clear emphasis on older and retro titles in the list this cycle. There are plenty of speedruns planned for SNES and Genesis titles, with some more recent fare sprinkled in. Planned runs include an Any% of Sonic 3 & Knuckles and a Tails specific playthrough of the Taxman and Stealth remastered Sonic CD. Highly underrated Sonic Colors will also get a speedrun, and those who love to hate the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog may be able to enjoy a Silver Story playthrough as a planned bonus.
Other planned Sega-themed playthroughs include Ghouls N Ghosts, Shinobi III, and Normy’s Beach Babe-O-Rama. The 2020 Awesome Games Done Quick will be livestreamed from Orlando from January 5th through 12th.
