Sonic Team Weren’t Keen On The Original Sonic Boom Designs

In a recent interview with GameSpot Sonic Boom developers Big Red Button have spoken about the challenges facing the team when they came up with their original character concepts and designs.

“We experimented with different colors and surface features on the characters, such as fur or scales, and quickly Sonic Team came back with their discomfort of that. They were great guardrails for us to understand when we were deviating too far from the character. Without their input, the character would have been a lot more alien and different from what Sonic is known for.” Discomfort may be putting things mildly, particularly in the case of Takashi Iizuka, the current head of Sega’s Sonic Team in Japan. As Rafei recalled, “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. Over the course of that meeting, when we were coming up with new ideas, we had a very sincere–just two adults talking–conversation about why a character should or should not wear pants, and that was a very surreal moment in my life and my career,” Rafei continued. “But it helped us understand the rules of clothing in this universe. Any small adjustment went a very long way, so we had to be very careful.”

Thanks, Jester

    1. if they were then we wouldn’t have made them be official. the designs are fine to great. and people need to just get over them.

      1. Here’s the thing, people get over things that are good.
        The fact that they haven’t yet gotten over the redesigns is only further proof that they are in fact bad.
        And really this is exactly the type of thing that’s been coming out of the west in droves, it’s pathetically generic.
        Take Ben 10 for example, in its most recent one there’s Ben the cheeky main character, Gwen the “teehee I’m so hip and indepwendent xD” girl, and the “guy with wide shoulders and sooo buff” Kevin.
        Now lets look at another example of exactly this. The new Pac-man show.
        You have “the Pac” the cheeky main character personality, the Pink “teehee I’m so hip and indepwendent xD” girl personality, and the “guy with incredibly wide shoulders” buff stereotype Red guy.
        And now we have Sonic the cheeky main character persona, Amy the “teehee I’m so hip and indepwendent xD” girl personality, and the “huge guy with incredibly would shoulders” buff stereotype Knuckles.
        Copy pasted personalities having any uniqueness sucked right out of them, edgy pointless designs, and overall an unoriginal bore.
        You people need to face the truth, the designs are homogenized garbage.
        It’s not even worth looking at honestly.
        And before you start using ad hominems saying “B-but you’re just looking through nostalgia goggles!!” because you have no brain to think of anything but fallacies to back yourself up- I’ve played Sonic Generations and Sonic Adventure, not a single one else and I only played Sonic Generations because it was a gift on steam.
        Not like I even need to say that, since even if I had it wouldn’t make even a slight difference on the validity of it.
        The west couldn’t come up with something original if they tried.

      1. No, clearly people who think these designs are bad need to check their eyesight and wipe the nostalgia off their glasses.

        If Sonic had not existed before this game you would have no problem with the designs. It’s only because you are used to the original look, but that isn’t a good reason.

        Anyway I love the new Tails, new Sonic is cool, nice for a change, Amy is the same don’t care. Knuckles I don’t like because his bottom half looks like a completely different character to his top. Separate the two halves are fine.

      3. I wouldn’t say it’s a bad thing at all. But in some instances it prevents people from judging something on its merits. People punish games/movies/whatever for not just being exactly like the original that they love when it’s entirely possible the new one is just as good, even if it is different.
        Those are just my thoughts on the issue.

      4. I don’t think it has anything to do with it. i think the problem is. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” Sonic already had a design that the audience was familiar and comfortable with and this game kinda distorted their looks. If the original sonic team disliked it as well, then that has to mean something.

        I think people are seriously misusing the word nostalgia. It mean longing for the past. If people were nostalgic for sonic, then they’d be concerned about the 90’s Style sonic. Sonic generations looked like the game was for nostalgic people. If you are upset about the design and want the original design back (Plus the fact that its not even being created by the original sonic team.) does not make you nostalgic. they just don’t want change. Nostalgia is

        “Oh, dude you remember that sonic game in the 90’s?

        “yeah that was awesome, i remember when you got to spend the night and i beat that one stage on my first try. ”

        “haha, yeah, those where the days I wish we could play it again”

        Not:

        *Video game developers create a sonic game with characters different from a game released a few months ago*

        Consumer: “Hey, what the!? What the hell is up with the design? I don’t like this, change it back!”

        It’s rather that people do not like the idea of CHANGE. Nostalgia has nothing to do with it except a few years after when they look back and and reflect on it.

        This is like if an alternate developer of Zelda, like GREZZO, abruptly made a futuristic zelda and gave link a master sword with a built in .44 magnum.
        a bullet proof vest, and a motorcycle.
        People would not like the design because it isnt like what they already have. it is until something becomes the norm that the previous become nostalgia

        It wouldnt be nostalgia unless this type of game was release at the time maybe wind waker, or twilight princess released, and people would say “hey, remember when zelda use to be set in a simpler looking time? Now its all futuristic”

        Even mario. He has looked pretty much the same since. I’ll be damned if they change him from a fat stubby plummer to a muscular, plummer from the future.

      7. Ummm… why can’t an argument be used more than once? If the argument stands… then it stands. You people don’t like the designs, because you are guzzling nostalgia like orange juice. I can tell when you all say the same thing.. “What did you do to Knuckles!?” as in you are COMPARING him to a PREVIOUS incarnation.

        Never do you ever say what’s actually wrong with him aside from he is “different looking” and “too big up top and too little on the bottom.”

        How are those arguments supporting a bad design of a “cartoon” character? MOST cartoon characters ARE out of proportion (Crimson Chin, Mario, Wonderful 101, The ORIGINAL Knuckles design, etc…)

        So basically everyone says his design is “bad,” because it’s “different” and never give a solid reason… which leaves nostalgia as the only plausible explanation…

      8. If anything is different, it means that anything differs somehow from a reference.

        References are references. Plain and simple. They were, they are and they will be references, like it or not.

        If one character was intended to have a specific design, and if that design was consolidate over the years, that design becomes a reference. And, as a reference, it MUST be followed and respected. Period.

        Yeah, you can cry freely, and call me reactionary, or even call me names. I could not care less. But stop throwing your invalid, senseless and forgettable arguments towards people who think the characters look terrible and such..

      9. when it’s not broken, don’t try to fix it. The newer games have poor level design, framerate issues, glitchy/unfinished games (ahem sonic 06), etc. But, they don’t have character design issues. Nobody was asking sega to come up with new design for their characters, we just want them to make a good sonic game.

        Basically what I’m trying to say isn’t that I don’t like the new designs but that I don’t understant why they felt that changing the way their characters look was necessary. I feel that Sonic’s design is one of the main aspects that made his popularity. To me and to some others, the new look is just alienating, not ugly. Call that nostalgia if you want to, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s a valid observation.

And i say had to because even after those dark days there was still some hope for Sonic (Colors, Generations). Granted, while the last Sonic game looked visually stunning but overall did not perform so well, at the very least this game seems to be constructed with the overall emphasis on “fun” and apparently not deterring from the core concept of Sonic with the conclusion of this article.

      13. Nostalgia is only bad when you are blinded from the truth by it. Primary example:) Thinking a game is amazing when it sucks ass, JUST because it is a well known series and people have feelings for the franchise. I think the Sonic franchise represents this well, especially the game Lost World (the game is NOT good despite some people claiming it is).

        Secondary example:) Hating any and all change to a game’s “makeup”. An example would be with Dante from Devil May Cry. People went ballistic over his redesign when he actually looked much better than before and it didn’t hinder the game play at all. (I’d say this new Sonic redesign also fits the bill). Another example would be Other M. The game wasn’t a bad game, but people went crazy over the way Samus acted(even though they only had it in their minds what she really acted like) and that one Ridley scene (which makes sense by the way if you played all the previous entrees to the franchise).

        Nostalgia is a powerful thing. Had there been no other Metroid entrees prior to Other M and people would have thought the game was great, but because they had their nostalgia glasses on, they found a couple faults that “didn’t match up” with their expectations and immediately cried “The game sucks!”

        It is reasons like these that make nostalgia bad. What makes it good is a completely different thing. Good nostalgia is being able to go back and reminisce on past experiences and feel excited for new experiences with franchises you love.

      15. Because they are playing off the popularity of the character or idea, but people criticize you if you leave everything the same. People WANT to see originality even in reboots and remakes.

        If they just went and made their own game no one would know who they are and their game wouldn’t sell as much as they would hope. They would have to start from the bottom and work their way up and that takes years and years and most likely you will fail even if you are especially talented.

        You can’t blame them for trying to ride Sonic’s popularity to success and the same goes for movies.

      18. Sonic has been going down down down the gutter for over a decade now. Big Red Button is taking Sonic and literally making the franchise anew. It wouldn’t be completely new if they kept the same designs would it?

        This is essentially Big Red Button’s game, so they have to make it theirs. If they keep it looking like Sonic Team’s Sonic then that’s Sonic Team’s game. This is BRB’s style, their art, their gameplay. What is the point of being the creator if you are told everything you need to do?

      19. “People want to see originality in reboots”. Is that why the new robocop tanked? Why everyone is talking trash about the new ninja turtles even though it hasn’t been released? I understand why you always disagree with the rest of us now, your a hipster.

        Like

      20. I never said people don’t care about Nostalgia, I just believe that the general consensus is that while being true to the original you should make it your own creation. I don’t really know anything about Robocop or Ninja Turtles so I can’t really elaborate on them, but generally if they are bad or mediocre films they probably won’t do well. If they are great films then they’ll probably sell well.

        The movie industry is in a different ball game than other forms of media though. Sales are affected seasonally, by other popular films out at the time (I’m sure movies released at the same time as Frozen would have fared better if they released before or after Frozen), by advertising and hype, by original popularity( Robocop doesn’t seem like a big franchise to me). SO it could have been any combination of these. Just because it failed and some people on the internet hate it because it wasn’t true to the original doesn’t mean people hate originality in reboots.

        FYI, I am not a hipster… The closest I am to being a hipster is in my tastes in video games. Everything else about me; favorite music, clothing, food, T.V shows, etc is all mainstream.

    2. They said the original redesigns, not the current ones.

      Both the title of the article and the description implies to me that they were trying to find a redesign that the Sonic Team would actually like.

      They did that by experimenting with a couple of different designs for each character.

      Apparently, if the fact that they’re able to keep their current redesign is of any indication, they’ve succeeded.

Sonic “felt” off when he jumped and my fingers could never get used to the way the buttons were set up, even if I changed the layout), many instances where you are left in the dark on what to do (I couldn’t figure out for the life of me how to beat Zeena… little did I know you could charge the snowball thanks to Youtube…wish they told me that before forcing me into the level) and there were way too many cheap K.Os, plus due to the awful controls it was almost impossible for me to beat a level with all my coins. I would get hit by almost every enemy I passed. I frequently lost all my lives and they never gave me enough afterwards so I’d die only a few minutes later and have to start the whole world over again -_-

        When you aren’t having fun, it’s a bad game… and I was certainly not having fun. I found the game to be more of a chore. I actually never finished the game, because I hated it so much and dreaded getting frustrated by it’s abominable issues.

    1. They tried it. None of this confirms that Big Red Button were set on pants until the Sonic team came in and said no. In reality they were probably testing the water with a wide array of Sonic (and co) designs and just wanted the Sonic Team’s input.

      It’s standard procedure at any video game company/firm. I read all about the process in The Eyes of Bayonetta when they were designing the characters. They drew crazy wacky costumes, reserved costumes and more, all the while getting input from people involved in the game and from the “big guys up top.” They do this until they find something that resonates with everyone.

      I would bet money this is the process they took and at one point someone happened to draw Sonic with pants and the Sonic Team immediately shot the idea down… no biggie, didn’t even make it past the drawing board.

There lame did that done that give me something fresh i bought your system, and don’t even bring up cod or some bullshit to cover it up! Nintendo fans compare ninetendo franchises to cod for a reason, its because they know its milked as fuck as well but that is there way of admitting it without saying its like cod ac series and the rest, that there the same old shit for the last 20 years with little changes to say its new……. poor things.

      1. even cod ghost is better than gay rehashed mario and zelda and pokemon. nintendo just rehashes games for kids. good thing kids are interested shooters more than kiddy games. wii u is a kiddy/social rejects console.

  9. Hey all you retarded fanboys watch 6:57 to the end. You should take this advice, especially the never ending pathetic nintendo commander, the 40 year old virgin/sociopath n dub nation, the guy with the major iceazeama fetish nintendo is my blood, and the rest. Actually a lot of you guys are sociopaths ay least the top fan boys here.

    Watch it and you probably will be who cares? No you know its all of you guys and your all basement dwelling obsession with corporation losers.

      1. If they didn’t bother with Media Gimmicks then I probably would buy Playstations too…

        But I don’t pay for something that is more expensive for many gimmicks I don’t need…

        The same goes for Wii U at launch…

        So you see, I might be in the holy N’s machinery but I’m not a blind drone…

      2. Media gimmicks are just a plus, because of them i dont need to have separate movie player hooked for my tv. And really they dont make the system much expensive if at all. Wii actually was a expensive system for what it was since it was capable of runnin dvd´s but because N didnt pay for license they made it so that it cannot read those discs but hackers proved that it can do that.

      3. Yes but for us who already have Media things or don’t want any, they should make a console version without such things…

      4. If I wanted to play Forza, Halo, Killzone, or Gran Turismo I would buy a Playstation or Xbox. But I don’t. Those games have been a disappointment to me but that’s just my opinion.

        The difference is that we always hear Sony and Microsoft fanboys preaching for Nintendo to go third-party just so that they can play Nintendo games on their favourite console. They don’t even want to touch a Nintendo console because it’s not made by their favourite company.

      5. If sony and ms fanboys want Nintendo games then they have to buy Nintendo system. My point is i hate every fuckin fanboy no matter of brand and its okay if you dont like certain brands but talkin shit about brand you dont like is the saddest thing ever. Consoles are piece of plastic, i mean theres not brand wars between cameras “oh Nikon is better than canon screw you” why there needs to be war for consoles is what i dont just get they are just plastic so fuck you all and SUCK MY DICK!

    2. FINALLY, SOMETHING WAS SAID ABOUT IT! Thank you Mr. or Mrs. Anonymous, This is what it means to be a true gamer spoken by TechreviewUSA! I couldn’t agree more. After so much sticking up Nintendo, I actually got a lot to say to them. I actually got a lot to say to the other companies as well! Best way is to tell it in one small shot…*ahem* “FIX YOU’RE SHIT N@#?AS”, that also go for the trolls and fanboys/fangirls. “A true gamer plays all”. Oh by the way, I now own an xbox one but its not really mine, its my pal’s until he moves out. Still a rip off to buy the other characters and stuff but KI was good…just wish there was a story mode to it like the past two.

  10. http://www.change.org/petitions/nintendo-adding-online-multiplayer-and-voice-chat-to-virtual-console-games

    Here’s why it’s important:

    Have you ever imagined playing an old classic that you loved and wanted it to be online to show off your skills or even play with friends and family that live to far away to play the game with them. Imagine Super Mario World with online and voice chat, Mario kart with online and voice chat or even super smash bros! from N64 with online multiplayer and voice chat the list can go on and on this can be something that I know will be a hit! We together can make this happen if we show nintendo that we really want this! This would be amazing!

        It be too much work dude, do you know how many VC games with multiplayer exist? Not only that, not all VC games with VC are owned by Nintendo. Besides, they really could be using those online resources for something else, like the newer games.

      3. that is true but you can still experiment with it start off with a really popular VC like super smash bros for N64 :) i know a lot of people would love online on that game it was amazing and voice chat is something awesome but bad with certain people so u can always mute them if you dont want to talk to them, also nintendo just got a new building for development im sure they can put a few guys to make this happen this would improve popularity on VC :)

  12. I don’t get it, why do people prefer arguing the same things over and over than discussing the news? Why is it that the majority of the conversations here are about trolls and unrelated topics, and not about the subject of the news. I think that there’s a lot of really intelligent people who have a real meaningful input on the subject but instead of discussing it, most people prefer to argue with obvious trolls. I really like this website but the comment section is almost always painful to read. It makes me wish for some sort of moderation or anything really.

  13. So they basically admitted they don’t understand how to be faithful to the original designs…. When Sonic underwent his 2D to 3D makeover he was still quite the same overall. A bit taller, more detailed, a bit more grown-up looking, but I feel like there wasn’t much complaint about it. I do like how much he was touched by the conversation about whether they should wear pants or not, haha. I’m really not too fond of the new designs really, but I’ll give the game a go and check out the show. I haven’t been disappointed by any of the Sonic TV shows.
