A newly released trailer, which you can find at the end of this news, gives you a glimpse into the combat and leveling system of Sonic Frontiers. In addition to the skill tree, which appears for the first time in a Sonic game, you can also see what you can collect to upgrade Sonic.
Furthermore, three particularly strong attacks are shown. The “Phantom Rush” mainly offers fast attacks, “Sonic Boom” is a long-range energy attack and with “Wild Rush” Sonic races towards his enemies in an evasive zigzag course and hits them particularly hard.
This time you can also parry and run around the opponents with so-called “Cyloops” to destroy their shields. With cyloop circles, you can also make new rings appear as life force, so that you are well prepared for the next fight. For big opponents, Sonic has to combine his skills and tricks and, as known from many other games, loot and level up.
Sonic Frontiers will be released on November 8th, 2022 for PC, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
