Time can be a great healer. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric wasn't a golden moment for the mascot, but the Boom universe continues to roll on with the animated series and the upcoming Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice on 3DS. Considering all that went wrong with the Wii U exclusive, it's a series that's done well to survive.

The troubles of the Wii U title and its developer Big Red Button have been well documented, though if you want a catch-up the latest video from Did You Know Gaming should do the trick. It focuses mainly on Rise of Lyric, and gives a reminder of some of the crazy Sonic and friends designs that didn't make the cut. A couple of the factoids are new to this writer, too, such as some funny audio clips that went unused.

In any case check it out - with guest host JonTron - below.
