Sonic movie origins SEGA

SEGA Sammy senior executive officer Toru Nakahara, who has also acted as a producer on the Sonic the Hedgehog movies, has provided some insight into the backstory and why the company decided to pursue films for the franchise.

In an interview with Pia, Nakahara said that even though Sonic has been a popular video game character in Japan, due to many factors including SEGA withdrawing from hardware department after the Dreamcast, there were times when Sonic was unable to flourish.

Sonic Frontiers Super Sonic bosses

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.

Yakuza Switch

Despite some fans hoping it would happen, the Yakuza series has stayed off Switch. That doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon, with executive producer and Ryu Ga Gotoku studio head Masayoshi Yokoyama now weighing in.

Yokoyama spoke with GameSpot about the situation, explaining that the two are a mismatch. He feels Switch is considered to be more family-friendly in contrast to the underground attitude of the Yakuza series.

SEGA has readied a new trailer for Sonic Frontiers to celebrate the game’s appearance at the 2022 Tokyo Game Show. It provides more gameplay, a first look at Super Sonic, and more.

We have the following overview for Sonic Frontiers:

Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Hinokami Chronicles DLC characters Entertainment District Tanjiro Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira

Publisher Aniplex and developer CyberConnect2 have set a release date for the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles DLC characters Entertainment District Tanjiro Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira. The full set is due out on September 16, 2022.

Nezuko Kamado (Advanced Demon Form) previously released as DLC for the game. The character launched last month.

Sonic Frontiers fishing Big the Cat

Back when we published our Sonic Frontiers hands-on preview a few months ago, we noted that the title would include a fishing mini-game. An off-screen video has now surfaced that provides a bit of footage, including a look at Big the Cat who we haven’t seen until now.

It’s assumed that the video was recorded at Gamescom 2022 last month. Sonic Frontiers was playable at an expo for the first time, giving many fans a hands-on opportunity. 

Sonic Adventure Takashi Iizuka

Each time Sonic team boss Takashi Iizuka is interviewed, it seems like Sonic Adventure is often brought up as well as the possibility of Sonic Adventure 3. That’s something Iizuka addressed once again recently.

When asked by Dot Esport what Iizuka would want to do if he had free reign to add anything he wanted to a Sonic game, he actually pointed to creating “the next Sonic Adventure game”. However, he acknowledged that a third title “would take a whole of investment from the company, a lot of development time, and a lot of game volume to really bring something to market”.

Sonic Frontiers content

Sonic Frontiers will have the most amount of content in a game the series has seen so far, according to Sonic boss Takashi Iizuka.

Iizuka shared that news in an interview with Everyeye. He also mentioned wanting to make Starfall Islands “stimulating” for players with various elements while exploring.
