Encyclopedia > Sonic Team

Sonic Team (ソニックチーム Sonikku Chīmu) is a Japanese computer and video game developer established in 1988 originally known as Sega AM8. Sonic Team's United States division, Sega Studio USA (formerly known as Sonic Team USA) was founded when a group of Sonic Team members decided to stay in America after testing the international release for Sonic Adventure to make games that appealed to the western market, like Sonic Adventure 2. Sega Studio USA is established in #650-650 Townsend Street San Francisco, California 94103-4908, which is also the same location as Sega of America. In 1991 AM8 took its name from its phenomenally successful Sonic the Hedgehog series and became Sonic Team. It is one of Sega's most popular creative teams. Sonic Team was headed by the famed video game designer and producer Yuji Naka. Under his leadership Sonic Team has become a creative powerhouse in the video game industry creating some of the most popular games ever made, such as Sonic Adventure 2. The joint creator of Sonic, Naoto Oshima, left Sonic Team to form his own studio, Artoon. Recently on May 8, 2006, Naka left the group with ten other members of Sonic Team to establish an independent game developer, PROPE. Image File history File links Merge-arrows. ...
