So this was posted today to advertise that High Score, a docuseries about the golden age of video games is going to come out on August 19. The small clip is an interview with Naoto Ohshima about the process of Sonic's creation. In it we have the usual story that we've heard before; Sega needed a mascot, a rabbit was considered, Ohshima goes to New York and a hedgehog was chosen. But the beginning of the clip mentions they were playing with the idea of using a panda, but they thought it would be too cute and weird to see one roll and attack. Is that part new? I don't think I've read anything about a panda being in the list of candidates before they chose going with a hedgehog. I posted this in the Supreme Knowledge thread, but I thought it deserved it's own one since the show might have information we don't know about. Like I said in that thread, not sure if there's going to be a full episode just focusing on Sonic or just segment. Anyways, anyone know about the panda info?
