Update #2 [Tue 23rd Aug, 2022 19:55 BST]: Just in time! Well, maybe a little late after Sega accidentally shared their announcement earlier today. But hey, at least we officially know when Sonic Frontiers will finally be released!

Sonic made an appearance at this year’s Gamescom Opening Night Live and during his action-packed trailer, the blue blur revealed he’ll be returning to consoles on November 8th.

We now know that Sonic is searching for the missing Chaos Emeralds in a strange new world, surrounded by unusual creatures. This world is called the Starfall Islands, and Sonic will have to be as fast as possible to save the inhabitants.

Check out the trailer below and share your thoughts on this updated look at the game in the comments!


Update: While the trailer was deleted or hidden on YouTube, someone on Twitter easily archived the Japanese announcement, so we can see for ourselves what Sega let slip.

There’s not much to do here – it’s just a Japanese ad, after all – but that November 8 release date is here, loud and clear.


original article [Tue 23rd Aug, 2022 11:00 BST]: Someone should tape Sega and Sonic Frontiers! Following news that a Taiwanese store had promotional material for the game that revealed a November release date and some upcoming DLC, Sega’s Japanese YouTube account accidentally uploaded a short trailer for the game.

The company has since taken it down, but not before eagle-eyed fans (and nibel) on Twitter spotted the trailer, which contained a release date – November 8.

It’s slightly different from the date we reported last Friday, but seeing as it comes from Sega itself, it’s probably correct.

Sonic Frontiers is set to appear on Gamescom’s Opening Night Live, which kicks off at 11am PDT / 7pm BST tonight. At this point, it seems very likely that the release date will be officially confirmed then, and Sega accidentally uploaded the Japanese version of the trailer a little too soon. Whoops!

Maybe Sega could use that adorable little character, Koco, to distract us from this accidental reveal?
