Sonic Frontiers is set for release in holiday 2022 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Switch and PC, and Sega has said it’s targeting high review scores for the game.

Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka has said he’d like Frontiers to have the same lasting impact as Sonic Adventure.

In a Sonic Stadium interview published in June 2021, the franchise’s creative officer said he hoped the upcoming game would provide the building blocks for future Sonic titles for many years to come.

“Sonic Adventure laid the foundation for 20 years of Sonic titles after its release, so in the same way I really hope that this new title releasing in 2022 lays the foundation for the following future Sonic titles – that is the idea behind the challenge for the team”, Iizuka said.
