The release of Sonic Frontiers was favorably received by the players, despite the pre-release criticism. The transfer of the universe of the blue hedgehog into a fully three-dimensional open world has appealed to fans, so it will certainly be interesting for them to know that SEGA decided to develop this idea.
In an interview with Sector , Sonic Team studio head Takashi Iizuka said that the novelty will form the basis of future games in the franchise.
“Our goal for Sonic Frontiers was to create a game that would be the cornerstone of future Sonic games. It is a brand-new approach for the franchise, but we have been conscious to honour Sonic’s roots as well – the game still needs to feel like a Sonic game.“
Sonic Frontiers was released on November 8, 2022 for PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
