Based on the sneak peek trailer, Sonic Frontiers appears to be an open-world game that takes place in beautiful environments with what looks like different biomes like swampland, rolling plains, and luscious forests. Sonic also faces what seems to be an otherworldly giant threat. Throughout the trailer, strange robotic sounds can be heard, perhaps coming from his enemies, or even a mysterious ally.
Whether or not this game takes inspiration from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is still unknown. But based on the various locales seen across the trailer, it seems as if players will have much more freedom controlling Sonic throughout his next adventure. We’ll have much more to show when more details emerge in the future.
Sonic Frontiers will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
