Sonic Adventure ‘Behind the Scenes’ Video Unearthed

Now THIS is cool! If you’ve ever wanted to see some Behind-the-Scenes footage of Dreamcast launch title Sonic Adventure, this video will sort you right out. It’s a 30-minute long promotional video called ‘Sonic Adventure at Tokyo International Forum’ and features stage playthroughs, character bios and a funny story where Sonic Team goes on location to research the game.

The Behind the Scenes video is particularly funny, as it has Naka-san sporting an explorer’s hat and a light-hearted look around the Sonic Team office. You also get to see a nice chunk of South America. Also there’s the beautiful image of SA1 director, Takashi Iizuka, with a risque Sonic wallpaper on his computer.

How did this video come to the internet? Sierra Ranay of Sonic Anime worked with Secrets of Sonic Team to publish this video, after Yuji Naka himself sent Sierra a box of goodies that included this video tape. Nice find, guys! Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy.
