Hi guys! Nuckles here, talking to you straight from Sonic Boom! I’ll be reporting to you guys about any news to come out of the show tonight. It’s running right now and will continue to run until 10PM PST, so keep an eye on this post for all the latest! Due to the speed of the internet, I’m afraid media won’t be going up until later tonight.
First bit of news to come out of Sonic Boom tonight, during a Sonic Team Q&A, Takashi Iizuka has clarified the status of three Sonic characters: Silver and Eggman Nega ARE from the future, while Blaze is from an alternate dimension.
Costume contest going on. A little kid dressed as Tails was the first one to be introduced. He was absolutely adorable! Also, two superb Eggmans, Kori Maru from the SEGAbits dressed as Joe Musashi.
Winners were the Tails kid in third place, Japanese speaking Eggman in second, and a superb Metal Sonic cosplayer in first!
Iizuka left the VIP room. Totally had nothing to do with Jason getting a picture with him, I swear! Announcer says big news coming. Got Jason on video camera duty. Hope this internet connection holds! Stay tuned.
Had an internet hiccup. On my iPad! Stay tuned.
While I’m waiting, figure I’ll talk about the event. House of Blues is much better then last year’s venue. Kelly Parker and Julian Mehlfeld, the SEGA community team, have done a great job this year! Plenty of TVs everywhere for people who are tired of standing in the music room. Lots of food everywhere. Everyone gets a cute little Chao keychain. The Sonic Retro people were behind me in line, and they were awesome to. Skyler’s doing stuff for the Sonic Show, be sure to watch his stuff when it goes up on the Youtube channel!
Doing a little experiment with photos through my iPad:
The above is a Sonic & All-Stars Racing coaster moments before it mysteriously disappears into my bag.
NiiGHTS trsailer being shown.
Trippy on stage. My poor attempt at a photo.
Sumo Digital is open to bribery. Segato Sanshiro being mentioned. Trippy apparently sent some bribes to Sumo through the mail when trying to get them to put in NiGHTS XD. No new news yet. Don’t get your hopes up for Segata.
Showed the CGI intro. Very special gust: Director of Wreck-it Ralph!
DSonSEGA one of the first video cgame companies called. He’s showing clips!
Looks like rslph is a racer!
Ralph is going to be in All-Stars. Clips shown. We got video!
Ken Balough on stage. Beong cheered. Announcing a game.
Sonic Adventure 2 FINALLY announced officialy, by the masters of secrecy XD. Funny trailer.
