Sonic Frontiers Showdown Trailer Shows Off Giant Enemies

Sonic Frontiers Showdown Trailer

As Sonic Frontiers approaches its launch date of November 8, 2022, Sega offered another look at what there is to do in the Blue Blur’s new adventure. A new Sonic Frontiers “Showdown” trailer the giant enemies Sonic will meet and beat in the Starfall Islands.

Check out the trailer below.

The Sonic Frontiers Showdown trailer emphasizes Sonic’s conflict with a mysterious new group of enemies. A voice exhorts Sonic to seek out the Chaos Emeralds, “tear down the walls between dimensions,” and “destroy the titans. Those titans are the various massive-scale foes that Sonic will encounter throughout the Starfall Islands. Some include a fish-like monster that swims through the desert with Sonic hanging onto its tail. Another appears to flee from Sonic while he pursues at speed, running along a “road” that the monster trails behind itself to catch up. Other boss fight mechanics will have Sonic using the environment to set up fight arenas, bouncing off the walls to damage a boss, and employing a powerful speed-attack that leaves afterimages as Sonic attacks from multiple angles.

The trailer also shows glimpses of Sage, the new character connected to the monsters, who plays a major role in Sonic Frontiers. The Showdown trailer concludes with a shot of Sonic gathering all the Chaos Emeralds and using them to transform into Super Sonic to confront an even larger, more humanoid-looking titan.

Sonic Frontiers launches on November 8, 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
