Stephen Frost explains why we haven’t heard much of Sonic Boom

Stephen Frost explains why we haven't heard much of Sonic Boom

Coming as the latest and final partnership between Sega and Nintendo on a 3 game deal on the Sonic series, Sonic Boom has been quiet as a late. Sonic Boom game producer, Stephen Frost, has explained to Sonic Stadium that the reason of the silence is that they’re cooking up som info for E3

Frost also promiises we’ll see more of the 3DS version, as well more Wii U footage. Quoting Frost, here’s what he had to say:

’ve said it a few times in the past, but there were key reasons why we announced the Sonic Boom initiative when we did. Along with that, there are a lot of partners involved with Sonic Boom so we have to be mindful of their timelines and requirements for their respective fields. It’s not just about a game anymore… This is a large group effort so any announcements and information shared publicly needs to really be planned and organized carefully. We need to make sure that things we reveal don’t impact other parts and vice versa
