Sonic Frontiers Release Date

Sonic In Sonic Frontiers

As far as a release date for Sonic Frontiers goes, all we have is Holiday 2022. The game may be delayed to facilitate extra work on the title and avoid the fabled Sonic curse, however.

It’ll be the second Sonic game to release this year after Sonic Origins which actually creates an interesting parallel with the release of Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, a 2D and 3D Sonic game releasing in the same year.

The game is currently aiming to release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. Unlike the previous Sonic game, Sonic Origins, Sonic Frontiers will receive a full physical release.

UPDATE: Steam’s backend has updated the release date of Sonic Frontiers from a generic 1st September release to 8th November according to SteamDB. The change was made on the 19th July. A backend listing on the PlayStation Store also listed the date as being in November, albeit as November 15th instead of November 8th. This means that it’s extremely likely the game launches in November.

Sonic Frontiers Gameplay & Details

The official website for Sonic Frontiers describes the game as:

An experience like never before, accelerate to new heights and experience the thrill of high-velocity open-zone freedom. Battle powerful enemies as you speed through the Starfall Islands- landscapes brimming with dense forests, overflowing waterfalls, sizzling deserts, and more!”

We’ve seen gameplay footage for the game thanks to IGN, and from the looks of it, the game is trying to capture that Breath Of The Wild-esque feeling. Sonic himself looks noticeably out of place in an extremely realistic world.

SEGA has also shown off the way that speed works in the game, the way that puzzles work in the game and the role that platforming plays in this world.

It’s a marked departure from previous Sonic titles and seems to show that the team working on the game wants to push Sonic forward in new and interesting ways using this as a springboard.

It does however reveal certain gameplay elements from the title, such as the fact that you can now wall-run and that there are going to be grindable rails dotted around this mysterious new island.
