FanBolt writes: "Sonic Boom is set to be an entirely new series in the storied Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Encompassing both a television show and a video game, the new venture is described as a spin-off, rather than a reboot. What you’re getting here is something very different from the usual Sonic fare. The character designs in particular have gotten a massive overhaul. As far as the video game is concerned, this is the next big installment for the WiiU and 3DS – a part of an agreement between SEGA and Nintendo for exclusive Sonic games on the platform."
