Happy Hedgehog Day!
Every February 2nd, SEGA celebrates the day Sonic 3 was released worldwide. February 2nd, 1994 was that day, marketed as Hedgehog Day as a parody of Groundhog Day. Since then SEGA has either acknowledged the day with videos and blog posts or announced significant Sonic news, such as the reveal of Sonic 4: Episode 1.
The tradition has continued this year with a SEGA blog entry marking the occasion and featuring a strange video with a real hedgehog:
The video’s description contains the numbers 4, 1, and 16.
Speaking of numbers, you may recall the last teaser made by Aaron Webber that involved two circles. Speculation arose on whether those were zeroes or eyes. The blog post cleared the air:

Most importantly, however, they told fans that there was still some more waiting to come:
I know at least half of you reading this are thinking: “Hey! Are you announcing anything big today, like Sonic Labyrinth 2 or Tails Sky Patrol IV? What’s the scoop?”, but you’ll need to be patient for a while longer. Good things take time, and we’re sticking to that. That said, you’ve probably noticed a few numbers floating around here and there. Who knows that they might mean?
Time will tell.
