The Game Awards: Sonic Frontiers and Sonic The Hedgehog 2 both get trailers

The film "Sonic The Hedgehog 2" as well as the game "Sonic Frontiers" were unveiled during the Games Awards ceremony in 2021. This evening allows us to learn more about the future of Sega's iconic blue hedgehog and of Tails' arrival in the film.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 reveals more 

Sonic 2 sees Jim Carrey returning as the surly Dr. Robotnik and Ben Schwartz again lending his voice to Sonic. This time they're joined by Tails, voiced by Colleen O'Shaughnessey, and the sinister Knuckles, voiced by Idris Elba.

The film has a release date of April 8, 2022, and you can see the trailer below.

Sonic Frontiers takes the series open-world

Initially teased by host Geoff Keighley and Sega, Sonic Frontiers is slated for late 2022 across all platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.

It appears to be action-adventure game set in an open world, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild an apparent influence. Unlike previous games, Sonic will be able to explore in more depth the Starfall Islands, with biomes including dense forests, huge waterfalls, deserts and many others.

Creative Officer at Sonic Team USA, Takashi Iizuka, spoke more about Sonic Frontiers:

“Sonic Frontiers is a huge leap forward for the franchise, delivering an evolved gameplay experience that can be enjoyed by longtime Sonic fans and action-adventure enthusiasts alike. We’ve created an all-new style of gameplay experience for Sonic the Hedgehog, where players will be able to explore lush and expansive landscapes with Sonic’s signature speed and abilities.”

Sonic Frontiers is aiming for a late-2022 release, with more information likely to come in the new year.
