Sonic Frontiers: Everything we know about the open-world platformer

Sonic Frontiers is bringing the famous blue hedgehog back for a new adventure in an world with “open-zone freedom”. First revealed during the Game Awards back in 2021, we’re still awaiting another update on Sonic’s return, but with the Summer Games Fest imminent, we may well just see more as E3 2022 kicks off. 

Led by game director Morio Kishimoto and developed by Sonic Team, Frontiers promises to be an “experience like never before”, and will be the first time we’ve seen the hedgehog speed his way back onto consoles since 2017’s Sonic Forces. If
Frontiers does make appearance during the E3 2022 schedule, it’d be great to find out more about the storyline, which is penned by Archie Comics’ Sonic the Hedgehog series mastermind Ian Flynn. 

Read on below to find out everything we know so far about Sonic Frontiers. 

Sonic Frontiers release date

Sonic Frontiers is set for release in late 2022 for current and last-gen platforms – meaning we expect versions for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch.

Keen to strike a chord with old school Sonic players and newer audiences alike, Takashi Iizuka, the creative officer at Sonic Team USA, said: “Sonic Frontiers is a huge leap forward for the franchise, delivering an evolved gameplay experience that can be enjoyed by long-time Sonic fans and action-adventure enthusiasts alike.”

Sonic Frontiers trailer 

The Sonic Frontiers trailer is a tease of what to expect from the blue hedgehog’s next adventure. Things kick off with Sonic belting it through a forest and being pursued by three robotic aircraft that appear to explode just as they catch up with him. The hedgehog is then thrust forward before slowing up as he approaches a knife-edge cliff face. As he turns around, he looks visibly shocked, gaping at the landscape before him. It’s then the camera goes free-form as it snakes around the sprawling “open-zone” world, filled with rolling hills, lush vistas, and towering waterfalls. Before the title screen reappears, we hear a machine of sorts re-calibrating, and again see the pink robotic glow of the aircraft featured earlier.

What exactly “open-zone” means in practice remains to be seen – the above trailer is without any in-game footage – but in Sonic Frontiers you can expect to guide the titular hedgehog around Starfall Islands in an effort to once more thwart Dr. Eggman. In this instance, that’ll involve zipping through a variety of lush-looking landscapes with the sort of velocity that we’ve long hoped to see the series grasp in the 3D-era.

As we reported back in May, a new Sonic game has been planned for release in 2022 for some time – and it would appear that this is the game first teased in that Sonic Central Stream. Sonic Frontiers is being developed by Sonic Team, with development led by director Morio Kishimoto – who also directed Sonic Forces and Sonic Colors – and producer Sachiko Kawamura – who served as art director of Sonic Forces and Sonic Generations. Ian Flynn, who wrote Archie Comics’ Sonic the Hedgehog series for over a decade, is set to pen an original storyline for the upcoming game.
