Sega has uploaded a behind the scenes interview with several developers on the Sonic Boom game and TV series. The interview focuses on the new character designs, as well as exploring some of the plot that will feature in the TV series and carry over into the video game. The feature is about 10 minutes long and explains a lot about the redirection of the franchise and why the team plans on taking it in this direction, so if you’re a fan of Sonic you definitely want to check it out.

Will you be picking up Sonic Boom when it’s released on the Wii U?

    I guess it’s good not to be a huge fan of a series in particular because when a change is made, it doesn’t affect me, for the most part, in a negative way as it does big fans. Here in Sonic, I don’t mind the new character design. I actually like it (except Knuckles, lol). Personally I enjoyed Lost World and I’m looking forward this game.

    Speaking of changes in franchises, if only Aonuma were to get rid of Toon Link…. lol πŸ˜‰

    I will be watching to see if this game can be really good. It looks possible.

    This game is going to be FANTASTIC! Wii U really has the exclusives that I care about so far this generation! Zelda U, X, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8, Sonic Boom, Super Smash. The only games I want that aren’t available are Kingdom Hearts 3 and FF15, and who knows when they will come out and hopefully they’re released on PC.

    Can’t wait for Sonic Boom. Loved Lost Worlds!

  • Blue Hernandez

    Day one for sure. This is the most anticipated game of the year.

  • Hmm? This could very well be really good, could likely fill the gap towards Zelda assuming it’ll release after X and Before Zelda (2015 at the earliest I think) This could definitely keep me busy for a while.

      I think Sega said that this game is scheduled for 2014 release day.

      • Hehe yeah they did, but we had a little misunderstanding I think the bracked 2015 in my comment refers to Zelda U, as Nintendo said they won’t show Zelda U until E3 2014, it’s pretty unlikely Zelda U would come before 2015, so this Sonic game could very well fill the gap between X(summer/fall 2014?) and Zelda U(probably spring/summer 2015)

    Man, I cannot wait for this game to come out, i still have not finished Sonic Colors and Sonic LostWorld πŸ™‚

  • SmashFinale

    What about 3DS, Ashley?

  • Andrew St. Clair

    Right away, you could tell Sonic was different because if you just held forward and ran straight, you would get through the game. You didn’t have to try at all.

  • Mario

    Wait a sec!? Tails’ voice actor is a woman!?

    • J_Joestar

      it isn’t uncommon for young male characters to be voiced by women.

      • Mario

        Well, you are right about that.

    tbh I’m just getting it for the cry engine 3 since Enternal Darkness couldn’t cut it because basically the developers didn’t care for wiiu people.
