Sonic Team Boss Responds to Frontiers Backlash
In an interview with VGC, Sonic Team studio head Takashi Iizuka spoke about the mixed reactions from viewers who tuned in for the “Sonic Frontiers” gameplay reveal. He insisted that the game is not like other titles, but instead features a new “open-zone format” unlike anything else that exists in the industry.
When asked if he might delay “Sonic Frontiers,” Iizuka responded that the studio is pleased with what it has created, citing encouraging playtests with the game’s target audience. Developers have used the feedback from playtests to make adjustments, but Iizuka underscored that several participants rated the game highly, placing it somewhere between an 8 to 10 out of 10.
Based on the interview, Sonic Team is close to completing the project and is preparing to get it into the hands of “Sonic” fans for the holiday season, although an exact date has not been announced. For concerned onlookers, Iizuka said they should wait until they play “Sonic Frontiers” to judge it, as he feels videos of the game don't do it justice.
