Game news Sonic Frontiers: a new and mysterious character presented, enemies and bosses also highlighted
Sonic Frontiers is certainly a project on which SEGA relies heavily, it goes without saying: the Japanese firm even considers it as the renewal of the franchise. Suffice to say that the ambitions are great and to convince the public, the company continues to make presentations.
It was in a press release that SEGA set about highlighting many elements of Sonic Frontiers: just a few hours ago, for example, we were talking about the levels of the game, some of which are very emblematic of the series would be making a comeback. Here, we are talking about a brand new character (and not only) bearing the sweet name of “Sage”, also seen briefly at the end of the trailer.
If we stick to the official description of SEGA, Sage is a mysterious girl who will appear several times on Starfall Islands, tricking Sonic into leaving the territory instead of saving his friends. For once, we do not really know if it is a friend or an enemy, but here is a visual of this new character.
Enemies in shambles
Incidentally, the Japanese developers also presented some of the enemies that our blue hedgehog will defeat : all respond to specific appearances and characteristics, sometimes requiring unique techniques to overcome. Let’s look at this right away.
This is an enemy that always spawns in groups. Its attacks are made using its pointed hands, similar to “stings” which one imagines unpleasant, whether you are a hedgehog or not.
An opponent who lives up to his name rather well. Its small peculiarity ? It flies through the air and unleashes attacks in the form of electrical tornadoes. Meteorologists hate it.
This enemy turns out to be quite formidable and could well harm Sonic, even in the middle of a race. As soon as it is detected, it turns into a kind of wheel and launches at full speed on its opponent.
Without surprise, this fanatic sees himself enveloped in an ultra-solid shell and then favors ranged combat, thanks to a boomerang attack. Sonic cannot pierce his armor unless he uses a special method of defeating it, called “Cyloop”. This creates a band of light reflecting Sonic’s tracks, surrounding enemies, objects and objects. areas to experience various effects.
Take spheres, collect them, stick them, make them attack with electricity and you get this enemy that one can imagine quite painful.
The first of three bosses featured. Ninja is all about super-high speed attacks, can parry Sonic’s punches, and can even use his shadow to strike. An entire program.
Tower is a boss who could well give a hard time to those who stand up to him. It is made up of pieces stacked on top of each other and its vulnerable point is at its top.
Asura is also a boss and isn’t really discreet: he This is an absolutely huge enemy that crushes everything with its massive arms. We also saw it in the trailers.
Sonic Frontiers will be released later this year on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
