As Sonic Frontiers director Morio Kishimoto nears the game’s release, he said the game’s new direction would further develop the franchise.
The director of the upcoming Sonic Frontiers has made a significant statement. According to him, the game’s new direction is an evolution of the franchise. With only a few days to go until release, Sega and Sonic Team have already done much to showcase the game. These include a brand-new trailer for Sonic Frontiers. It focused on the most significant innovation, open-zone gameplay, and other elements such as combat and bosses. The game seems to change the character dynamics. The director explained how this would influence Sonic games in the future.
The open-zone gameplay of Sonic Frontiers was greeted with cautious optimism and pessimistic doubt at best when it was first unveiled.
There were also plenty of comparisons between Breath of the Wild and Sonic Frontiers. Even Sonic Team leader Takashi Iizuka tried to downplay them. However, as time went on, the reception of Sonic Frontiers within the fanbase gradually became more positive. Today, many are eagerly awaiting its release. The game’s director Morio Kishimoto also shared his thoughts on the game’s upcoming release.
The game developer posted on his Twitter account about the upcoming release of Sonic Frontiers. A rough translation is that he’s a little worried about the upcoming game. He noted that he and his team had spent five years developing the franchise format. Soon, players will get to experience what they’ve been working on. In a follow-up tweet, he thanked the fans who sent him kind messages of excitement for the game. He noted that it also helped put his mind at ease.
The tweet then states that his goal with Sonic Frontiers was to take a risk and improve the franchise, something he set out to do five years ago when he started developing the game.
He also notes that five years was “relentless aggression”, which probably means that everyone on the development team was striving to make the best game possible, and then ends his tweet with a confident “it’s time to win”.
Early impressions of Sonic Frontiers from many websites, content creators and others are positive. While many of these players shared their thoughts on aspects such as the Cyber Space stages, the most positive was the open-zone environment and the various activities included. With these already positive impressions, it seems this game could be a venture that eventually pays off for Kishimoto and Sonic Team and could help set a template for future titles.
