Sonic Frontiers Looks Like It Made A Baby With Breath Of The Wild
Sonic Frontiers was revealed at The Game Awards last week and to me, it looks like it’s made a baby with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Don’t get me wrong, that’s a formidable combo and two legendary franchises. A Sonic the Hedgehog game inspired by Breath of the Wild? Count me in!

This of course isn’t the first 3D Sonic game and I’m sure many fans were hoping to see Sonic Adventure 3, but that wasn’t to be. Granted, as far as I’m aware, the trailer features no gameplay, but the concept of this game alone and has piqued my interest.
Sonic Frontiers is developed by SEGA’s Sonic Team Japan, led by producer Sachiko Kawamura and producer Morio Kishimoto. The game is described as: “an all-new type of Sonic experience. In the dangerous and vast world of Sonic Frontiers, anything is possible, and players will have the freedom to explore the visually stunning, open-zone realm.”
“Sonic Frontiers is a huge leap forward for the franchise, delivering an evolved gameplay experience that can be enjoyed by long time Sonic fans and action-adventure enthusiasts alike,” said Takashi Iizuka, Creative Officer at Sonic Team USA. “With the effort of the talented developers at Sonic Team Japan, we’ve created an all-new style of gameplay experience for Sonic the Hedgehog, where players will be able to explore lush and expansive landscapes with Sonic’s signature speed and abilities. There’s sure to be lots of twists and turns around every corner in ‘Sonic Frontiers,’ and we’re excited to unveil more information about the game over the coming months.”
Sonic Frontiers will let us explore the open zone freely with locations such as: “the Starfall Islands – landscapes brimming with dense forests, overflowing waterfalls, sizzling deserts and more!”
