Although we only received one real trailer for it, Sonic Frontiers is apparently still planned for a release in the coming winter holidays.
This year may not be moving quite as fast as everyone’s favorite hedgehog, but it’s getting closer and closer to the holiday season (sorry to remind everyone it’s May now). But the holidays themselves seem to have no trouble keeping up with the pig. As discovered by Nintendo Life, Sega of America’s Social Media Manager Katie Chrzanowski gave a very brief update on the state of Sonic Frontiers, saying that news is coming “soon” and will be out this holiday.
“See how many people are asking about this [Sonic] Frontiers, we don’t have any Frontiers news today, but don’t worry, soon,” Chrzanowski said.
Chrzanowski shared this tidbit during the first episode of Season 6 of Sonic Official, a livestream series that, unsurprisingly, discusses all things Sonic.
Sonic Frontiers was officially announced at The Game Trailers, sorry, The Game Awards last December. The reveal trailer didn’t really show much, apart from some slight Breath of the Wild and Shadow of the Colossus vibes. We’re still yet to see the blue guy go fast, so fans are a bit nervous and wondering if it’ll actually come out this year or not. Hopefully Sega has at least learned some lessons from its somewhat patchy history with the games.
In the meantime, as a bridging aid, we have Sonic Origins, a collection that combines Sonics 1, 2, 3 (& Knuckles) and CD, launching on June 23rd. However, if you want to get the games individually, you might want to dwell on that, since Sega is doing a fun thing to delist the games ahead of Origins’ release.
