Following a report we brought you earlier this month from the latest issue of License Global which mentioned upcoming Sonic events, we may now know where one of them will be held.
Marlene Sharp, Producer, TV Series, Sonic, Sega of America took part in the above recorded debate about women in the film and television industry at The Digital Hollywood Experience event in LA. During the discussion Sharp (at 21:30) mentions that SEGA of America are in talks with YouTube Space LA to hold “a special Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary cocktail party or something like that”.
The License Global report spoke of an E3 event and according to Google maps the YouTube Space LA venue just happens to be a short 23 minute drive from the E3 expo in Los Angeles. Sharp states those with a high number of subscribers on YouTube receive benefits such as the use of the YouTube Space LA venue for free for filming and events, so this would be perfect for any E3 events planned.
Now, Aaron Webber of SEGA of America has already stated there will be no E3 party, but he could be excluding press events. It could also be that this is another Anniversary celebration event unrelated to E3, like the one SEGA has planned for July in San Diego. Time will tell. If we find out more, we’ll be sure to let you know.
