With SEGA opting to bring in fan creators, their most recent collaboration is with YouTuber Cybershell for a five-minute history of Fang the Hunter in preparation for Sonic Superstars later this month. And the end result is... odd.
To be clear, I don't watch Cybershell so if this is his shtick, I'm sure someone in the comments will clarify.
But the gist of the video is: Fang is a criminal bounty hunter designed by artist and figurine sculptor Touma for Sonic Triple Trouble, he went on to appear in Sonic Drift 2 and Sonic the Fighters, his transforming vehicle is the Marvelous Queen, and his greedy demeanor tosses him between formidable fighting and cowardly slapstick.
The video is straightforward, a little deadpan, and has some unusual editorializing like "You could have named this super cool character... if you were a Japanese youth in 1994 reading gaming magazines," and "Maybe Sonic should have hired Fang not to steal the Chaos Emeralds. Ever think of that, Sonic?"
Alongside their "Fast Friends Forever" series, this is now the second concurrent fan creator promotional project SEGA is running, reaching out to fan artists, professional illustrators, comic writers, and now, video producers.
