The Game Awards 2021 has provided a variety of World Premieres in several genres, a few of which were some new open-world titles, including Sonic Frontiers. This new SOnic looks to steer the franchise in a new direction with a different feel while maintaining the classic Sonic aesthetic.
Watch the reveal trailer for the game here:
The trailer showcases a lush, sprawling landscape reminiscent of many of the popular sandbox adventure titles as of late. The Sonic franchise has been popular for its high-paced side-scrolling action since its inception, with a few other titles such as Sonic Colors: Ultimate featuring a more platformer style of gameplay. Frontiers definitely looks to revitalize the series by presenting it from a different, more “open” perspective.
Sonic Frontiers is scheduled to be released for the holiday season 2022.
