UPDATE: Kazuyuki Hoshino To Appear at 2013 Summer of Sonic, Sonic Boom

by July 19, 2013

Metal Sonic Designer to Lounge in London, St. Louis

Those quick enough in the 13 seconds where Summer of Sonic tickets were available this year to grab one are in for a real treat.  Though Takashi Iizuka will make a return appearance, with him for the first time will be Sonic team designer Kazuyuki Hoshino.

The appearance was made official today by SOS organizers.  Many know Hoshino as the creator of Metal Sonic; others may know him as the mind behind Amy Rose’s design.  He also had a hand in the original NiGHTS Into Dreams and the follow-up Journey Into Dreams.

UPDATE: Sega of America has just confirmed Hoshino will also appear at Sonic Boom in St. Louis next month.

Hoshino will participate in a live Q&A session.  Questions are being taken right now in the comment thread of the SOS website’s original announcement.  They will be screened and the best ones will be chosen.  For Boom-goers, a similar era to submit questions has been setup at the Sega blog.
