The lights are on
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.

Y'know, I'm actually...feeling good about this...
I think it's good for Sonic as a brand, as a classic character that needs to "transform" or whatever. But I'm more interested in the game than anything, so we'll see if the game holds up... I like the idea though.
This is kind of starting to sound like a better Sonic Adventure game and I'm excited to see more.
I rather like the small clothing additions they made. Particularly the stuff for Tails.
I like the new look, everyone shouldn't be freaking out.
What the hell is wrong with Knuckles? All he needs is a freaking Predator mask now and the game can get a nice "M" rating
I really hope this game turns out really well!
It's been a long time since I've actually looked forward to a new Sonic game. I'm apprehensive, but interested.
It may have been the music playing during the video, but I'm optimistic about this game. The TV series looks like it'll be pretty good too. I always liked Sonic over Mario because he has so much personality.
I hope the TV Show has the "Sonic Boom" song. Look it up, it is good.
This looks kind of cool but Knuckles looks a bit ridiculous.
Well, the show isn't funny. But maybe the games will be fun.
