Sega recently announced a new take on the Sonic franchise with Sonic Boom, and a new video takes a look behind the scenes of the game's creation.

The video offers a series of interviews with the CEO of developer Big Red Button, executive producers from Sega and for the TV show as well as others. You won't see much new gameplay footage from the game, but you will see some of the concept art that lead to Sonic and pals new looks. Perhaps most importantly, however, is an explanation of why Sonic is wearing a neckerchief.
