Sonic Frontiers New Gameplay Shows Off Action and New Enemies, More to Come in June


Late last year, Sega gave us our first taste of Sonic Frontiers, their ambitious new attempt to make a Breath-of-the-Wild-style open-world adventure for the blue hedgehog. The first trailer provided a quick peek at some of the game’s impressive open-world vistas, but not much in the way of actual gameplay. Well, we now have a brief look at the blue blur’s latest in action, courtesy of IGN.

The new Sonic Frontiers footage shows off some new enemy types, including what appears to be a huge boss, as well as some hints about exploration, as we see Sonic grinding on rails and seemingly activating part of the game’s map by running on a circular treadmill. While we only get a few seconds of footage, overall, navigation and combat does look fairly polished for a Sonic game. Could this be the hedgehog’s big 3D breakthrough? Hopefully we’ll learn more soon, as IGN is promising to roll out more footage and impressions throughout June. Check out the teaser trailer for yourself, below.
