Sonic Frontiers has been under the microscope since the most recent gameplay trailers. Fans have taken to social media to discuss their varying opinions about Sonic''s next sortie in Sonic Frontiers, with one popular YouTuber expressing fewer than positive feelings.
Sonic Frontiers was first shown in SEGA''s Sonic Central stream in May 2021. That same year, fans would not receive much information about the blue hedgehog''s newest title until The Game Awards.
Charles "MoistCr1Tikal" White has expressed his dissatisfaction with Sonic Frontiers, claiming that it is a "bootleg Sonic." He said in his new video titled "New Sonic Game Looks Horrible," that a wide-ranging Sonic game might work but that Sonic Frontiers is like, "A fan game. At least with fan games, there''s passion." White would also claim that the title reassigned to the 27-year-old of Sonic the H
White says the game appears to be "slow" and "apparently like a tech demo" as well as a game. Over the course of Sonic''s 30-year history, the franchise has seen several hits and misses in the eyes of some fans, including White saying that the title may be salvaged if it were to be released in late 2023 or 2024, but only time will tell if SEGA does decide to delay the release.
The one thing that White makes that stands out most is that Sonic Frontiers appears to be slow. While we don''t know what Sonic the Hedgehog will be, Sonic being able to speed across open fields in Sonic Frontiers appears to be something White would appreciate. The SEGA did not mention that Sonic Frontiers had skipped the series'' 30th anniversary the prior to ensure quality.
Sonic Frontiers is set to be released by the end of this year, as fans continue to debate what footage we''ve been given, and Sonic may benefit from other open-world games. SEGA has planned to continue with its coverage throughout the month of June and the coming year. It is unclear how viewers will react to future trailers of the title or if this game will make a splash with Sonic fans.
Sonic Frontiers is set to be available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S in 2022.
