New 8 Minute Sonic Frontiers Hands-On Video From IGN & More New Gameplay Footage From Sonic Central | Video Spotlight

Tuesday, June 7th, 2022

We’ve got a double dose of Sonic Frontiers gameplay footage to look at today. IGN have uploaded an 8 minute gameplay video full of hands-on impressions from Mitchell Saltzman of IGN who’s been given 4 hours of play time with an early build of the game. You can watch this via the embed below:

IGN share a lot of new information about the game in this hands-on. Sonic and friends are transported to the game’s new location through a wormhole and Sonic quickly gets separated from the crew and has to explore the new world himself. Sonic also earns XP which can be spent on new abilities. Areas in the game are also called Open Zones which seems to suggest that the game isn’t entirely open world – focusing more on larger, self-contained areas.

We also get more in-game footage of Sonic Frontiers in action via the most recent Sonic Central video which you can also see via the embed below:

As you can see, more larger enemies are showcased in this footage, as well as different times of day.

We also get the news that Sonic Frontiers will receive a short animated prequel film called Sonic Frontiers Prologue. Sonic Frontiers Prologue will launch before the game’s release later this year.

Sonic Frontiers will launch on PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC in “Holiday 2022”.

Sonic Frontiers Combat Showcased in New 6 Minute Video | Video Spotlight

Friday, June 3rd, 2022

IGN’s Sonic Frontiers coverage continues with an extended look at the game’s combat. Click the embed below to watch 6 minutes of in game Sonic Frontiers combat:

Combat appears to be a lot more involved in Sonic Frontiers when compared to previous Sonic games. Mid air combos look similar to Shadow’s combat in Sonic 06, but Sonic also has use of projectiles and a laser-loop like ability that can disarm or launch certain enemies into the air. Enemies are also more alien when compared to the badniks of previous games, and each enemy takes a considerable amount of hits to defeat. We also see combat with a much larger enemy that has to have its individual appendages destroyed one-by-one.

Sonic Frontiers will launch in Holiday 2022 for Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The game is being developed in house by Sonic Team.

Watch 7 Minutes of Sonic Frontiers In-Game Action | Video Spotlight

Wednesday, June 1st, 2022

IGN are back with more Sonic Frontiers coverage. This time we have an extensive 7 minute gameplay video that showcases some of the open world action in Sonic Frontiers. You can see it for yourself via the embed below:

The footage is largely exploration-focused, showcasing a move-set that is remarkably similar to previous 3D Sonic entries like Sonic Forces, Sonic Generations and Sonic Colours. New abilities come in the form of a laser loop ability that Sonic uses to surround certain objects like torches which disables them. We also see Sonic running up specific wall-faces. There’s also some light puzzle solving, which unlocks doors and reveals hidden items.

Sonic Frontiers will launch in Holiday 2022 for Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The game is being developed in house by Sonic Team.

Sonic Origins Releasing 23rd June 2022, New Details and Trailer Emerge

Wednesday, April 20th, 2022

Fresh off the back of the recent artwork leak and ratings from South Korea, SEGA have officially dropped the first trailer for Sonic Origins and revealed a whole host of information for the upcoming retro Sonic compilation.

Sonic Origins will feature the Taxman versions of Sonic 1, CD and 2 alongside a brand new port of Sonic 3 & Knuckles developed by Headcannon who previously assisted with the Taxman ports as well as Sonic Mania. The games can be played in their remastered anniversary editions in full widescreen, or in their classic 4:3 aspect ratio versions. The game will also feature a mission mode which tasks players with completing new custom stages that earn them tokens to be spent on in-game unlockables in the game’s virtual museum.

The games will also be available to play as one big title that combines all four titles. The games will also feature new animated opening and ending sequences from SEGA in collaboration with Powerhouse Animation.

Sadly the game is currently a digital only release. What’s more confusing is the 5 different editions the game is being sold in; each with their own exclusive content like a mirror mode, hard missions, additional character animations and additional music tracks. You can see the breakdown of each edition in the graphic below. Thankfully there is only a £4 difference between the base game and the ‘digital deluxe edition’, with the base game priced at £32.99 and the digital deluxe edition priced at £36.98.

Sonic Origins will release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC and Switch on June 23rd 2022.

The House of the Dead Remake – Switch Review

Wednesday, April 6th, 2022

The House of the Dead is a long-running series from SEGA’s beloved arcade team AM2. The original game sees AMS agents Thomas Rogan and ‘G’ set off to the Curien Mansion, after Rogan’s fiance Sophie warns them that the research team based there are being murdered. Sure enough, the duo arrive just in time to see a creature (the original development team insist they’re not zombies) eating a researcher’s face, and so they get to work trying to find the cause of all the bloodshed. The setup is exactly the same for this remake as you’d probably expect.
