livestream

On February 3rd 2013, Japanese online TV show Puyo-Puyo will be hosting a live stream event. Their guests? Sonic Team. The staff members joining the Puyo-Puyo team are as follows.

Tadashi Takezaki/SEGA
Takashi Iizuka/Producer
Jun Senoue/Sound Director
Kazuyuki Hoshino/Art Director

It might not be related. But… February 3rd is a day after Groundhog day, a day which Sega have unofficially called ‘Hedgehog Day’ due to their tradition with making big announcements either on or around it. Could it be?

You can watch the broadcast here. Please be aware, this will almost certainly be in Japanese and it’s unlikely that there will be any English subtitles. The show is broadcast at 2am (japanese time) but for you guys in the UK, thats 5pm (GMT) on Saturday 2nd February. Please use this handy converter to find out what time it is in your area.

    Hmm, sonic team on a show called Puyo-Puyo?
    what could that mean….
    WAIT
    DR ROBOTNIK’S MEAN BEAN MACHINE 2 CONFIRMED

    • sonic prower says:

      you wish. Although i will admit it is kind of strange to see some of the sonic team staff on a puyo puyo online tv show livestream.

  2. Dr. Robotnik says:

    GET HYPED! :D That rumored Sonic game is bound to be announced during this!

    • They’ll probably just talk about the Puyo Puyo franchise or something.

      • Sonic Team knows that no one cares about Puyo puyo. ;)

        They know what the fans want to see, and it’s SONIC. :P All aboard the hype traiiiiiin!

        • RabidNoodles says:

          I care about Puyo Puyo, so …;)

        • Maybe not you, but Japan is crazy about it, and Japam really doesn’t care about Sonic. ;)

          • They do care, just not as much as America and Europe. Please don’t make it sound like they have absolutely no interest in Sonic at all. It gets tiring that people keep on thinking Sonic has no place in anyone’s heart in Japan.

          • That’s not what I meant at all, I was just putting it the same way he did, people in the west also care about Puyo-Puyo, but not as much as Japan.

          • Having been to Japan many times, I think Sonic has by no means disappeared from the Japanese public’s concsiousness, he’s just not mainstream like he used to be. He’s something for gamers. Pretty much the same story as in the West really. Sonic’s popularity has been increasing a little bit again over here, in recent years, but from what I can tell, I think his mainstream hype lasted a couple of years longer in Japan than it did in the West during the early years, (hence Sonic X.) I might be wrong though.

          • Still felt like saying that.

    • Or maybe it’s stocks! STOCKS YOU GUYZ!

  3. HERE WE GO AGAIN! Imagine if it really is SA3… xD

  4. To the hell with Puyo Puyo I want the announcment of Sonic Dimensions / Sonic Adventure 3 / Sonic Propel / Sonic Turbo / Sonic Revolution / Sonic & The Return of the Friends / Or whatever.

    Anyone knows what time will this be in America?:D

  5. I’m lucky this live stream is on Sunday morning if it was on Monday I wouldn’t watch it, it starts at midnight Western Australian time and I start school on Monday. Also, I’m really excited if the rumour is trueI’ll admit I’m not a fan of the adventure series but an SA3 would be good, I don’t have my hopes for it though. We’ll have to wait until then!

  7. So is it on the 2nd or the 3rd? I’d like a Sonic announcement to be on the 3rd; it’d be an awesome birthday present.

    • It’s broadcast in Japan on the 3rd… but depending on your time zone it’s likely to be the 2nd.

  9. Dakota Jones says:

    Hopefully the decent(?) amount of Japanese I know will help me understand what they are saying. Lol…

  10. This… it’s a d*** thing to thing the game will be announced, it’ll be an official announcment, not an ‘OOOH! I ANNOUNCED THIS GAME IN A LIVESTREAM!’

    • Still, I think the livestream will be good.

      • …I think you need to sit down, and take a breather.

        Who cares whether it’s announced via livestream or on their official page? The videos will end up on YouTube anyway xD (so calm down).

  11. Cool. :)

  12. i hope the game title is sonic adventure 3 or sonic universe so get ready

  13. And im talking to you hog father for not responding to my friend request on psn so please respond

  14. How interesting. I would greatly enjoy it if it was another game, however. Personally I think Sonic needs a little break so they can focus on other game series first. Ecco the Dolphin I would like to see a new one, or Billy Hatcher.

    Puyo-Puyo, though, would be a contender due to the name XD

    • SonicItachi says:

      3D Sonic games come out every 2 years for the most part. So they did give him a break. Plus, Sonic Team makes Sonic, not SEGA. Sonic Team does not make Ecco, although I would love to see a new 2D Ecco.

  15. Stephen Sharpe says:

    I would bet $20 that the next game is going to be Sonic Adventure 3. A third party a couple of months ago already secured the domain name a ton of domain names for it. Its going to be Sonic Adventure 3 for sure.

    • It does seem likely, some say it’ll be Puyo-Puyo news, but it is and/or is after Hedgehog Day when this will be hitting. I do hope it’ll be SA3, But it is is kinda unlikely. Hope though, hope.

  16. Why is everyone talking about a stupid game called Puyo Puyo? This is a SONIC news site not a stinkin Puyo Puyo news site! Anywho I hope itis that rumored Sonic game and I will hopefully be here at 12 pm. (That’s when it’s showing in US. ;) )

  17. Mandobardanjusik says:

    well, if it is sonic related, I figure we will get the news on here translated, so I will just wait and see

  19. So Sega now have their own Nintendo Direct now?

  21. Are we finally going to get a concrete release date for All Stars Racing Transformed on 3DS?

    Adventure 3

  25. I love how most people here are all like “I dont give a shit about [game that is not Sonic]!!!”. Yes I know this is a Sonic site but people need to get over the fact that Sega is not just about Sonic.

    Anyways, looking forward to whatever is announced, even if t turns out not to be (but most likely will) Sonic related.

  26. Black_Creaux says:

    If I could asked them a question, I’d ask them why haven’t THEY-themselves, created a Sonic RPG? Bioware’s Dark Brotherhood doesn’t count. All that talent pouring into Phantasy Star, and no one at Sonic Team said, let’s do a Sonic RPG?

  28. the dark hero says:

    Cool but I’m wondering is their anyone on the team who runs this website speak Japanese. It would be useful is the sonic Stadium did I know the language

  29. They Call Me Knuckles says:

    I’m not familiar with this show but it wouldn’t be a bad guess to think that they might announce something Sonic-related since we can reasonably assume that Sonic Team has been working on a new Sonic game since Generations was released. Does anyone know what kinda stuff this Puyo-Puyo show usually broadcasts? Is it usually only stuff relating to the Puyo Puyo franchise?

  30. Uhhh i’m trying to watch the livestream but it wants em tot buy a prenium acount

  31. ه ه ه ه ه says:

    When it will broadcast ?

  32. For anyone interested, no one said anything about new games unfortunately. They just talked about the history of Sonic.

  33. Trolled….

  34. Andy Avenue says:

    well thats 90 minutes of my life ill never get back :(

  35. They seem to be doing another sonic section 2 am japan time

  36. Sorry 2 am was what we just saw aw well maybe march april

  37. Sorry 2 am was what we just saw aw well maybe march april

  38. Well, remember, the Pokemon Direct talked about the history of Pokemon before announcing the news games.
    Maybe this is like that, but in two parts with the big announcement another day.
