changed this to the pre-release discussion thread since all discussion about the game is happening here, beyond the IGN coverage of the game.

Honestly, I don't give a shit. People were horny for Pyra snd Bowsette, my girlfriend loves both of them. Which is why they will be in the next game.
Bowsette will be in the next game..?

Some people were having sex with the robots in Sonic Frontiers.
You mean some people were talking about having sex with the robots... right?

The date for when the embargo lifts and media can show them. Suspiciously the same day that several outlets have pinned for the June Direct.

Getting the impression Frontiers is gonna be interesting, but also that it's a bit like Pokemon Legends Arceus, a testbed for ideas that might work in a future game once fully developed.
Hey. Arceus is a great game. SF has a long way to go before it proves that to me :D I'd be amazed if it got 80+ Metacritic.

It's just a gut feeling. They will take the design of the concept art and make it into a legally distinct fan design version.

part of me thinks they're not related, but given the hands on were of those levels, that'd be weird. I guess Nintendo will have a proper trailer? but that would mean Sega would have to show the Switch version

and lordy, I don't think we're ready for that

Yeah I don't necessarily believe the dates are related, it is a bit suspicious but that's really it as far as I'm concerned.

Unless...

I really hope both the rumored 29th Direct and Sonic Frontiers Cyberspace levels being on it are true. I really can't wait to see the Switch version.

It honestly sort of sounds like Pokémon Legends Arceus.

A very messy game overall, but it's foundation is so absurdly engaging it becomes way more than the sum of its parts.

I think I am on the cautiously optimistic train for now.

Can I just say how much better these players are than whoever recorded the IGN stuff too. I really can't believe someone at Sega was playing like that.
I wonder if the "Legends Arceus of X" will become a shorthand for "messy but revolutionary entry in X". Kinda like a lesser version of "BoTW of X" (because what we need are more comparison shorthands)

The comparison has definitely got me interested though

This is so great to hear! The Fanbyte preview just seemed to miss the mark on details – we now have confirmation that the control is fine-grained and you can also boost during the circle attack.




Nothing like Sonic Fan Optimism lol

Alright, all these new promos and B-Roll videos are doing a good job of selling me. I'm now past cautiously optimistic, and am sitting in the 'Bring it on!' camp.

I wonder how this game will run on the Steam Deck?

This newer footage and impressions are certainly giving me hope. Man if i can get playable Tails and Knuckles running around like this too then oh boy. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Mmmhm
An open layout would lend itself well to flying, gliding, and climbing mechanics.

Like was proven several years ago in this game's inspiration, Sonic Adventure.

It will be at the Direct, IGN First stopped, and it was not at the PS or Xbox events. SEGA and Sonic haven't really talked about the game either.

IGN First isn’t over, it’s weekly for the full month

It will not be on a Direct because SEGA doesnt want to show the Switch verison, even if is a good port they want to make Sonic Frontiers look like an AAA Sonic game showing footage all running in high-end PCs , not even next-gen consoles.

Little confused, what is implied here? Not being mean. Hard to read the message.
You said earlier “IGN First stopped” - here Mitchell (author of the IGN First pieces) is saying rather that IGN First will continue to be posted weekly through the end of the month. He doesn’t want to promise specific days the updates will go up because the last time an update was delayed he got a lot of hate.

Another thing the trailer is probably at the huge direct that is happening because of the massive amount of NDAs.

The IGN footage may have been rough, but the more recent stuff, which seems to be from a more recent build, looks much more polished, and reinforces this as a game I will watch with interest.


Provided the final product's not an unfinished mess like '06 or Rise of Lyric, and that the Switch version is competent, I will probably end up buying it, and I'm not even really a Sonic fan.

There's room on my shelf for imperfect but fun games that try something bold and ambitious, even if they don't 100% stick the landing. This kinda reminds me of games like Xenoblade Chronicles X or Disney Epic Mickey in that regard.

Just listened to the Kinda Funny Podcast and they anchored their SGF impressions in this game. Blessing + Tim are super excited for it, say it’s the most hopeful they’ve been in a Sonic game ever. Likewise Greg is cautiously optimistic, first 3D Sonic he is interested in. Of course that includes their unspoken impressions of the cyberspace levels I bet. They spoke roughly about how cool the story stuff was, having them “rip off their headset saying holy shit to each other” – edgy stuff where they “go there”. !!!

Hold on, you know Sonic?

They can't talk about the game because Nintendo probably has the release date its the same day as the embargo!

Also, 90 percent of the leaks for this game are real. I saw a image on Twitter back before Sonic Central aired, with no source that showed a beautiful artwork of Sonic standing on a rock overlooking the fields with a December 9 release date. Can't find it rn.

Did you post the wrong link? The link posted has nothing to do with Nintendo or the switch version and is just fan discussion
I am currently working on finding leaks with the Sonic Frontiers discord server rn. That is how I pieced together info about this game. So I am moving back and forth between applications. Sorry about that. We think news is coming this week, or next week. We just don't know if it's because of a hardware/direct announcement or something else.
