Sonic Frontiers director says you “can’t even scratch” some bosses until Super Sonic is unlocked
SEGA has spoken more about Super Sonic in Sonic Frontiers and what that form means for the game.
Earlier in the week, we got our first look at Super Sonic thanks to a new trailer revealed at the 2022 Tokyo Game Show. Director Morio Kishimoto has now indicated that there will be bosses in the game that “blue Sonic can’t even scratch” before the power-up is unlocked.
He told IGN in an interview:
“Normally in Sonic games you’ll encounter a boss and you’ll fight them as regular, blue Sonic. In Sonic Frontiers, there will be bosses that blue Sonic can’t even scratch. But if he collects and uses all seven Chaos Emeralds, he can become Super Sonic and then battle those bosses. Becoming Super Sonic will be the only way to fight them.”
“Up until now, in Sonic games, Super Sonic would only appear against the last boss. Imagine if the first boss in Sonic Frontiers is as strong as those bosses,” the director said.
SEGA says that Super Sonic has a completely different moveset that players can take advantage of. Specifics haven’t been shared just yet, however.
Sonic Frontiers arrives for Switch on November 8, 2022.
