As a surprise at the Game Awards 2021, Sonic Frontiers was made public. Sonic games have been hit or miss in recent years (mostly miss), but we think this game looks great!
For Sonic Frontiers, we have seen a possible release date, some beautiful world scenery, and some new enemies that could be in the game. There may also be some clues in the trailer that show what the story is about, too.

- PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC through Steam when it comes out.
It’s not clear what the difference will be between old and new consoles, but based on the scope and world design, it’s possible there could be some ray tracing.
Sonic Frontier Is a Story
Sonic Frontiers takes us to Starfall Islands, a place with a lot of different biomes and ruins of a mysterious technology. It’s very Breath of the Wild-like. This isn’t clear what the movie’s story is, but thanks to the trailer and a few tweets, we have a few ideas.
This is the first thing we know about Sonic Frontiers: Dr. Eggman, Tails, and Amy Rose will be in the game! Besides that, we have also learned that Amy’s voice can be heard in the Sonic Frontiers video. It’s not clear if Sonic is looking for Amy, or if Amy has been changed and brainwashed by a machine from a long-ago (weirder things have happened).
It’s possible that Dr. Eggman could be the bad guy in all this, but that seems like a bad idea, especially since the trailer looks like it’s going to be a more serious take on the Sonic games. If I had to guess, I’d say there’s going to be a new bad guy, which would be a nice change.
Sonic Frontiers Is a Game
Some of us didn’t get to play Sonic Frontiers very much. We know that the game is a classic 3D platformer, but it also features an open world like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This is the first time the series has been in an “open-zone,” as the developers say, so this is a big deal for the show.
There are a few biomes we know about from the pictures and descriptions of the games, like plains, forests, and waterfalls. There are also deserts and plains. They looked like weird towers with spiraling rings around them in the trailer, as well, so we saw them. Because they look like buildings that players can use to update their map with a clear view of the area in the Assassin’s Creed games, we think they’re cool. It was also in Breath of the Wild.
As we said earlier, there are some familiar faces back in Sonic Frontiers. It’s possible that those characters are playable, either in specific parts of the game or even in multiplayer. If these features did come, it would be really cool. We don’t know if they will, but it would be great if they did (wink wink, Sonic Team)
Music for the trailer was made by Tomoya Ohtani and Tee Lopes, and Jun Senoue will be making music for the game’s score.
Sonic Frontiers needs a computer with a certain amount of RAM and a hard drive
Normally, I’d say that a Sonic game isn’t very demanding in terms of graphics. But with Sonic Frontiers, Sonic Team is going in a new direction, and I’d think twice about ignoring how demanding it could be. As a side note, you have to think about how well the game is made.
Let’s compare Sonic Forces to Sonic Forces. The game asked for an Intel Core i5 5th Gen or AMD A10 7th Gen CPU, 4GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GTX 750 Ti or AMD R7 265 GPU.
The minimum specs for Sonic Frontiers aren’t going to be very different from what modern games need, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to be very different. For example, the Nintendo Switch version of Sonic Frontiers must be able to run well on lower settings, so the game must be able to run well on the Nintendo Switch. In fact, I think you might need an RTX 3060 to keep up with the best cheap gaming laptops that have that kind of power.
Since Sonic Frontiers is coming out this year, it won’t be long before we see more from the game. Our best guess is that by E3 2022, which is just a few months away, we’ll get a new report. Sonic Forces was a complete waste of time. I hope this game can save 3D Sonic platformers.
