Sonic Frontiers places Sega’s beloved blue hedgehog in an open world – a world very similar to the Hyrule we explore in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new setting transforms the traditional gameplay loop for a Sonic game and creates what the Sonic team sees as the future of the franchise.

“In the history of Sonic, we’ve had the 2D side-scrolling gameplay [and] the 3D, more linear format where you start Sonic somewhere and go to a target on a track,” Sonic Team creative officer Takashi Iizuka told me at Summer Game Fest Play Days. “This is going to be the next iteration, this is like the future of Sonic – we wanted to make something that really embraced freedom and the freedom to run around wherever you want.”
