“It’s said that the building where Sega Enterprises was located will be gone, so I came to take photos with my kids,” Yuji Naka wrote on Twitter. Naka told his children that he made Sonic the Hedgehog on the 7th floor. He added that there were lots of people gathered around Sega’s old offices. However, they were there for a Pokémon Go raid battle.
