Gotta go fast across a vast open world
What you need to know
- Sonic the Hedgehog is an iconic blue hedgehog character first featured in a video game series by SEGA.
- The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise expanded to include merchandise and movies, and has since moved to other video game platforms.
- A trailer for the upcoming game, Sonic Frontiers, premiered today.
The company behind what most would perceive as the first ever video game “Console Wars”, SEGA, has been hinting at a new project being announced for quite some time now. Some thought of a new Sonic game, since it’s been a while since the last release in the series, which was Sonic Forces in 2017.
A trailer for the upcoming 3D Sonic game, Sonic Frontiers, was unveiled on social media today. You can see the trailer below:
The trailer is part of the IGN First campaign, in which the video games media outlet IGN will cover specific games like Sonic Frontiers throughout June. Viewers can see Sonic traveling across a vast open-world landscape, with rails and platforms scattered throughout the sky. Sonic can be seen running within a wheel of sorts, presumably to do a scan of the surrounding environment. There are colossal boss fights to be conquered, and tons of gold rings to collect — it wouldn’t be a Sonic the Hedgehog game without them!
