This year, SEGA finally thought of bringing its own mascot to the Tokyo Game Show TGS 2022. The new work “Sonic The Frontier” will be released on November 8; as one of the popular demo games this year, let’s take a quick look.
At this year’s Tokyo Game Show 2022, which was simplified due to the epidemic, SEGA set up Sonic inflatable balloons in the “Sonic Unknown Frontier” booth, which attracted special attention.
This time around the first 15 minutes of the game; using the PS5 version. .
In the trial version, the difficulty can be adjusted, and there are two play styles for players to choose from, such as the “action style” for those unfamiliar with the “Sonic” game, and the “speed style high” for those familiar with the system.
At the beginning of the test version, you can feel the wild grass, cliffs, stones, rain scenes, etc. at the same time, and actually feel the performance ability of “Sonic Unknown Frontier” in the scene. The gameplay is roughly that Sonic is on the map and follows the directions of the ancient ruins to solve the puzzle.
Because it’s an open world, unlike the horizontal scrolling type, you just need to rush forward. When you are not good at action in the early stage, you often lose the acceleration device due to overshooting, and you can only brake quietly and go back.
In “Sonic Unknown Frontier”, in addition to sprinting hard, you also have to know how to make good use of various acceleration and orbital devices on the map. Many need to follow Sonic’s actions, press buttons to react simultaneously, or switch left and right orbits to move.
The trial version focuses mainly on movement skills, and there will be cross-teaching levels on the way; when encountering a puzzle solving mechanism, just observe the interaction a bit. Due to its initial content, the attack currently requires only one key press.
Because the fast moving tracks are opened one by one following the regional puzzle solving, after opening… indeed there will be a bunch of tracks in the sky inexplicably, which can only be seen by personal feelings. Overall, if Sonic like this is acceptable, you should be interested in this one.
Finally, let’s listen to the ending song “Vandalize” sung by ONE OK ROCK for “Sonic Unknown Frontier”.
