Sonic Team Considers Early Sonic Boom Designs Traumatic


The reception for the new character designs for the upcoming videogame, TV show, and merchandise spin-off for Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Boom, was mixed. Some people found the designs workable, while some were indifferent, and an even bigger number felt that the redesign was awful and bordering on unnecessary. It turns out that the earlier designs were worse, as even Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka found them “traumatic.”

Bob Rafei, CEO of developer Big Red Button, relayed the experience to GameSpot:

“Early on, when we had our first review of all the crazy things we wanted to try, Iizuka-san came down to Los Angeles and looked through all the different concepts … I felt sorry for the guy because sometimes he couldn’t actually look at the screen … it was too traumatic seeing all the crazy stuff we wanted to do.”
