Sonic Boom creative director explains all the tape


7:30 PM on 02.25.2014



Is it just me or does the Sonic Boom gameplay in this behind the scenes video actually look better than it did with the initial reveal? And everything is so nice...and colorful. Oh no. No no no. No falling into the Sonic Cycle for me. Booooo. Hisssssss. Sonic is dead.

Anyway, Bob Rafei, Big Red Button CEO/Creative Director, actually specifically talked about all the tape and character redesigns. "For example, the sport tape that I thought was a good example of showing how active the character is, shows how fast these guys are moving," while the neckerchief is an homage to the adventure genre (see: Uncharted 3 for another example).
