SEGA Promise 3 Upcoming Major Updates to Sonic Frontiers

Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account has revealed that Sonic Frontiers will continue to see updates and support into 2023. The account has also shared a “content road map” which highlights 3 major updates. These will include the following features:

1) a new juke box mode, a new photo mode and new challenge modes will be added in the first update
2) a Sonic’s birthday event, a new open zone challenge and new koko will be added in the second update
3) a new story chapter and new playable characters will be added in the third update. Tails, Knuckles and Amy are all hinted at being made into playable characters

All of these additions and updates will be made available for free for owners of Sonic Frontiers. This is a surprising and welcome commitment from SEGA that should keep Sonic Frontiers feeling fresh into the new year.

Sonic Frontiers – PC Review

Sunday, November 20th, 2022

The release of a new Sonic game has become a somewhat sad affair over the course of the last decade, right after it seemed like he was finding his footing with games like Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations. So after nearly two full run-throughs of the game, it brings me great joy to say that Sonic Frontiers is the best Modern Sonic title released in the past 10 years. In fact, there’s elements of it I think I enjoy more than Generations! It’s also, however, a game with no shortage of issues; in ways that often feel much like ‘first game syndrome’ for the ‘open-zone’ concept that Takashi Iizuka believes could form the future of Sonic games.

New Sonic Frontiers Trailer Explores Combat and Upgrades | Video Spotlight

Thursday, October 13th, 2022

SEGA has released a new trailer for the upcoming Sonic Frontiers, launching next month. This time, we get a look at the various ways Sonic will be able to sock it to his foes.

The trailer notes that as well as the typical Sonic fare, such as homing attacks, drop dashing and the stomp, Sonic’s combat has been massively expanded with a skill tree system implemented. We also get a glimpse at how this stuff’s upgraded – Skill Tokens from defeating enemies (giving incentive to actually go after them instead of waltzing by as you might be tempted to), and Seeds of Power and Defense from completing other tasks. We also get to see the Cyloop yet again, with emphasis put onto how it can be used in combat – and the Phantom Rush, a powered-up state where afterimages of Sonic fly around the enemies, laying on the hurt. It actually reminds us of the Sonic OVA a bit!

Finally, we get a look at the cosmetics included with the game’s digital deluxe edition – some very brown shoes and gloves. We’re personally not too sure the fashion justifies the Digital Deluxe approach we’ve called out in the past (nor the included bonus items, which just seem to be a means to… play less game?), but at the very least there’s no early access included this time – presumably they’ve learned their lesson on that detail after Colours Ultimate.

Sonic Frontiers launches November 8th.

Like a Dragon 8 Announced, Kiryu Kazuma Returns

Wednesday, September 14th, 2022

Like a Dragon 8 has been formally revealed by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio for an early 2024 release. It will follow the turn-based RPG action of Yakuza: Like a Dragon but will feature 2 protagonists in the form of Ichiban Kasuga and a returning Kiryu Kazama, now looking particularly more aged since his last appearance in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.

The Yakuza name has been officially dropped in Western territories, with the much more literal ‘Like a Dragon’ now being the franchise name going forward. The same applies to Like a Dragon: Ishin! and Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name which was also revealed today.
