Fans of the blue hedgehog have been looking forward to the latest game in the franchise, Sonic Frontiers since its announcement. The breathtaking game, revealed in 2021, promises to excite fans new and old alike. Sonic Frontiers is a powerful, open world experience that takes the best developers Sonic Team have to offer and runs with it. It is the first open world Sonic game ever to be released, but still has lots of 3d Platforming to keep old fans satisfied. Scheduled to be released on an unknown date in 2022, here’s everything we know about this spectacular game.
The first thing players will notice about Sonic Frontiers is the stunning graphics. It’s difficult to compare these graphics to other games because they are so stand out. The backdrops are richly detailed, with sweeping fields, realistic water, and ancient ruins.
The game is simply beautiful in every possible way, to the point where Sonic’s bold character looks a little out of place. It looks as if Sonic the Hedgehog got dropped into Shadow of the Colossus, and they’re trying to make a game around it.
A game for everyone
The mixed look of old time sonic and the incredible world he’s placed in may be intentional. The game is being developed by some of the best in the game, including game director Morio Kishimoto and original writer Ian Flynn. The goal was to create a game that would appeal to both old school Sonic the Hedgehog lovers, as well as new players who are looking for innovation and creativity in the field.
Open World Experience
We know very little about the game at this time, but what we do know is encouraging. The game is set to have open world zones where players are free to explore, with some platforming involved as well. This is unique for a Sonic the Hedgehog game, which has previously never offered Open World before. The result is strongly reminiscent of Breath of the Wild, but with traditional Sonic the Hedgehog platforming still threaded in.
The open world is set on the Star Fall Islands, which you are free to explore while playing the game. The Islands even have their own unique biomes ranging from ancient ruins to flowery fields. Many of these are featured in the preview so you can get a close look at the raw beauty that awaits.
It’s impossible to say how good this game truly is without playing it first, but the game is certainly promising based on what we have seen. The game appears to have everything we need for an enjoyable experience, including a breathtaking world to explore, a fantastic character to get behind, and a story to challenge our minds.
While we don’t know much about the story yet, we do know the development team is usually very good at creating exciting plots for players to enjoy, and that Sonic Frontiers will be one of the best games of 2022.
