Open Your “Imagine-Nation”
If you didn’t think the annual Summer of Sonic convention hasn’t made its impact internationally by now, consider this proof positive: The fan convention was featured at some length as part of a larger feature pertaining to Sonic Lost World on the NHK World program Imagine-Nation.
The program, believed to have originally been broadcast in October ahead of Lost World‘s release, aired as a repeat this week on the Japanese broadcast channel, which broadcasts worldwide in English. Imagine-Nation featured taped footage of Summer of Sonic, crediting Sonic Stadium YouTube arm The Sonic Show for the footage. Its US counterpart, Sonic Boom, was also featured, albeit only in stills.
The segment was produced with the cooperation of Sega. If we can obtain footage from the show, we’ll relay it or a link to it here.
