That was almost nothing..... barely even a story trailer. :/
I have no idea why I always fail to consider that every time Sonic trailers get shown in game events, there's going to be an indeterminate amount of time in which they show a whole bunch of other shit before they show the Sonic stuff.
I'll schedule my lunch break to when the event starts and end up not seeing Sonic, getting back to work, and then seeing the Sonic stuff hours later when I've finished work. Always happens to me because I'm a fucking idiot. :P
Well, we got the long awaited desert biome. Not to mention confirmation of Sky Sanctuary Zone. I don’t recall seeing any levels that weren’t leaked or rumored already though.
Maybe also some new combat techniques that hadn’t been shown or described before.
Decent trailer, just wish there was more of it I guess.
Horaaayyy more 2.5D Green Hill Zone. Can't sell a modern Sonic game without it. Can we really stop this shit already? I've been playing the original 2D Sonic games obsessively all my life and these physics just aren't it. The rest of the game looks cool. Honestly a super-realistic open-world Sonic is all I ever wanted ever since those original Sonic 06 screens dropped all those years ago. Hopefully that's the majority of the content.
Not to mention this game NEEDS to sell gangbusters otherwise Sega will do their normal shtick of walking back any innovation in favor of safety (not holding my breath for that, it releases the day before God of Soy Ragnarok)
Trailers up on Youtube:
Edit, fuck, ninja'd.
Well, I honestly liked the trailer. The desert area looks cool. Just needed more Cyberlevel games tho'. Well, we're getting more gamepaly footage from the demo, anyway.
Okay but why does Green Hill progressively gets worse every game?
curious when they start to really market the game
So fucking glad this is really the actual cover of the game:
So good to have a cool cover again for a 3D main game again.
I think this trailer was good. A little short but what they showed off was cool.
It was so brief, but somehow I don't feel like the Cyberspace boost level design is going to be a significant improvement over Forces.
Additional thoughts from rewatching the trailer:
I like the music. Has a SATAM vibe
Wait are they showing off 3 open zone environments (grasslands, beach and desert) or are the beach and desert environments the same?
I think the air loop animation at 0:56 has been improved from the last trailer… I could be wrong tho
I don’t think this move (from 1:05) has been shown off before:
Sonic’s attempt to punch SAGE at the end seems to confirm that she’s an antagonist
The Steam page has been updated with a few new bits of information:
Alongside the Amy memory tokens we've heard of before, they also exist for Tails and Knuckles
Cosmetics for Sonic's gloves and shoes
There are FIVE islands
The game is 28gb
That was definitely RCS doing Sonic's voice. The first time he's ever said anything, I think.
Hopefully he actually shows some emotion this time instead of slightly upset Pizza Hut guy.
Frontiers might not be the next Breath of the Wild, but it could be better than Sonic Underground
“Experience All-New Open Zone Platforming
Race across five massive overworld islands brimming with dense forests, overflowing waterfalls, and sizzling desert landscapes, each with their own unique action-platforming challenges and hidden secrets to uncover.”
Well Sega did a great job not showing off each area’s unique challenges. Then again, if the gray blocks of Forces and Origins are any indication then Sega probably hasn’t visually incorporated these challenges into the environments’ theming and visuals. Sonic used to have unique level gimmicks. Sigh
I actually liked the trailer.
30 seconds into the trailer- definitely seeing some pop-in on the top left as Sonic exits the more enclosed area of Sky Sanctuary.
this game is going to be aggressively okay
Trailer hasn't changed my opinion on the game whatsoever. And considering how much of a deal was made of it in certain quarters I was surprised they moved off it so quickly. 2 minutes and the entire segment was done.
