If you had asked us at least ten years ago if we would ever find a Sonic 1 prototype, we would have thought you were crazy. But ever since we found a prototype of Sonic 3, we knew that it would only be a matter of time before we would eventually find a Sonic 1 prototype. Little did we know that just a little over a year later, not only would we eventually receive one, but it would arrive with no hassle or expense to us or to the community. The story of the search for this white whale is a very personal one, so this article will be a bit different from what we usually write. Given that it has been a little over 15 years since our search began (and even longer if you consider the Sonic community itself), we have a lot to say.
Great way to start off the new year for Sanic fans.
