As announced the previous day, an extended look at Sonic Frontiers gameplay has been revealed.
The seven minute video from IGN featured Sonic running around the brand new world, with some elements from previous games returning, as well as new ones.
Fans with keen eyes noticed callbacks to previous Sonic games, such as Sonic Rush and the trick system, and the parkour of Lost World. The one that caught fans’ attention the most was the spincycle, a new move in which Sonic can take out enemies within a line created by Sonic as he runs.
The game also features a bigger focus on puzzle solving, something that was present in previous games like Rise of Lyric, but not to the level that was shown so far in the teaser. Rail grinding was also a point of focus within the game. Brand new collectibles have also been sighted, with some fans wondering as to what it could be.
The American video game publication promised more details, interviews and previews related to Frontiers throughout the month of June.
Sonic Frontiers will be released in 2022 for the Xbox and PlayStation platforms, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
