These are the translated excerpts from the interview about the preventative measures the Sonic Frontiers team took against motion sickness:

I can only thank the Q&A team that tested the game. However, some of them were unable to play the game due to 3D motion sickness.. I thought it would be a shame if countermeasures were not taken, so this is something that we decided to take very seriously.. In the end, we prepared a lot of countermeasures to reduce the amount of 3D motion sickness.

A new take on the franchise, Sonic Frontiers takes a more “open world” approach to the formula. Players navigate through different environments, which have their own monsters populating the world at large. That said, players can still race through the game at high speeds, as shown in previous trailers.

Sonic Frontiers is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
