The official Sonic Japanese Twiiter account are doing a new video project where the team takes a plush Sonic and explores around Japan. Started back on January 31, 2022, the videos will highlight various locations and hotspots, including shrines, statues, and more. It is a fun little project that reminds myself of when Sonic Team went on vacation to South America for inspiration for the development of Sonic Adventure. You can also give recommendations to where Sonic will “take a walking adventure” next on the official Twitter account and can read the editorials of the videos on the Sonic Channel website. The first video has Sonic explore Shinagawa including the main shrine, sniff some beautiful flowers, and take a selfie with a Komainu statue. More videos to come in the future and link to the Twitter is available here.
