Sonic Team boss says goal of Frontiers was to create cornerstone of future Sonic games

The recently released Sonic Frontiers seems to be a step in the right direction for 3D Sonic and while it received mixed reviews from critics, rather than exceptional reviews like SEGA had initially hoped, it is generally considered a fun 3D platformer. In an interview with Sector, Sonic Team head, Takashi Iizuka, said that the goal was “to create a game that would be the cornerstone of future Sonic games.” Thankfully it seems as though the Sonic Team have held true to that goal and have laid some fairly decent groundwork for the future.

Sonic Frontiers is set to set a new template, just like Sonic Adventures did in 1998. What does this mean for the game and players?

“Yes, you are right. Just like Sonic Adventure, our goal for Sonic Frontiers was to create a game that would be the cornerstone of future Sonic games. It is a brand-new approach for the franchise, but we have been conscious to honor Sonic’s roots as well – the game still needs to feel like a Sonic game.”

  1. I would talk about how Sonic is a dead franchise and how Frontiers is just a cookie cutter game were only Sonic is playable, but at this point even my comments are cookie cutters.

  2. Sonic Team doing A LOT of talking, but I want to see them back it up when the next game comes around: I need physical evidence they are actually taking our feedback seriously, and will actually IMPROVE on what they learn from Frontiers

    1. Yeah, but despite of all their recent development of Sonic Lost World and Forces, I’m hoping the series will stay true to its tone and I hope Ian Flynn gets involved with another Sonic game in the series since he did a swell job on the game’s script. I think we should all thank him for being involved with the Sonic Frontiers project in the game and saving the franchise for being at a dead end.

  3. Since they are already working on the next installment of the series, I’m hoping for other characters to be playable in the similar format like Sonic in Sonic Frontiers. The game was indeed nailed right off the bat and got impressive reviews that SEGA was hoping for. Not to be mentioned that Sonic Team was trying to do better with the Sonic brand which they still are. I hope they take the franchise more seriously and treated it like a actual Sonic game. Again, Sonic Team is trying to do better. Most people are trying to do better.
