Sonic fans may be a bit divided on the recently announced Sonic Boom: video games’ favorite hedgehog has hit many highs and lows over the years, and there’s a little caution anytime a new project is announced. Sega’s newest video, a Behind the Scenes look at both the Sonic Boom video game and television series, looks to shed a little light, illuminating fans on both the concept, the direction, and the goal of the series.
The video, which you can view below, features commentary from Hiroyuki Miyazaki, the Chief Content Officer of Sonic, Bob Rafei, CEO & Creative Director of Big Red Button, SEGA Game Producer Stephen Frost, Takashi Iizuka, the General Manager of the Sonic Team, the television series’ Executive Producer and Showrunner Evan Baily, the cast of the series, among others.
Sonic Boom is coming out for the Wii U from Big Red Games and the 3DS from Sanzaru Games, with both similar nad unique content, and the Wii U version running on the CryEngine 3. Sonic Boom is also the third and final Sonic game in Sega’s exclusivity deal with Nintendo, and is set to release sometime later this year.
As previously reported, the Wii U version of the game will also act as a prequel to the TV series, a CG animated show being developed by OuiDo! Productions. The series is also set to air on Cartoon Network sometime later this year, consisting of 52, 11 minute long episodes.
