Sonic Frontiers launches later this year and many are excited about Sonic’s next big adventure. With IGN getting the first gameplay footage of the game in action.

The trailer highlights the large open world that takes inspiration from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Most importantly we see a new combat system as Sonic circles around an enemy to launch it into the air and uses a series of aerial kicks. Many will notice the combat system resembles that of the infamous Sonic 06 system.

SEGA has big expectations of Sonic Frontiers and the first look at the game looks promising. Large scale fights against powerful enemies but hopefully, the developers have taken notes from other open-world games. Not just Ubisoft and Rockstar’s large catalog of titles but recent games like Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West. Sonic has had a rocky history with 3D games but titles like Sonic Generations have shown it can be done.

Sonic Frontiers is scheduled for release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series in late 2022.
