So all those under water levels from Sonic 1, 2, and 3 don't pertain to this conversation huh?

That is true. Technically Sonic can't "swim", but he can walk on the bottom of the ocean, lake, whatever...

Oh, and before any clever clogs posts a comment: we've not forgotten about the Labyrinth and Aquatic Ruins Zones - but in those levels he doesn't swim, he runs through the water. So there.

"He assumed that hedgehogs can't swim, so that's why he made it that Sonic can't swim. But then recently he saw a photograph in Germany of a hedgehog swimming, so that isn't quite accurate!

"Apparently hedgehogs can swim, but they can't climb out of water. This picture he saw was a guidance thing showing that you should help the hedgehog back up onto a branch, so he can get out. And he [Naka] was thinking, 'Oh, nobody is helping Sonic!'"
