When the latest work in the “Sonic Kid” series, “Sonic Frontiers” (Sonic Frontiers), recently released a series of gameplay videos, it immediately caused a bipolar reaction, and many people even hoped that the development team could delay the release of this work. However, in an interview with foreign media VGC, Sonic Team President Takashi Iizuka said that he has no such plans.
Just after the “Sonic: Unknown Frontiers” gameplay screen was released, “#DelaySonicFrontiers” (postponed “Sonic: Unknown Frontiers”) became a trending hashtag on Twitter, showing that fans are not very satisfied with the current content of the game. In a recent interview with VGC, Takashi Iizuka was asked about his views on negative reactions.
Iizuka Takashi first stated that he was not too surprised, thinking that players just reacted according to the pictures they saw, because they did not understand the actual content of the game, so they compared the game with some known works, but he Emphasizes that the team has created a completely different game type for “Sonic” in “Sonic: Unknown Frontier”, and said that the type called “open area” does not exist in past works, so it cannot be compared with other games. game comparison.
Therefore, Takashi Iizuka hopes that before the official launch of the game, the team will have the opportunity to explain to the players exactly what this “open area” play style is.
According to the producer, if players can attend Gamescom or the Tokyo Game Show when they return to physical form this year, they will have a chance to experience and really understand Sonic: Unknown Frontiers for themselves. But for now, players really can only make associations through videos.
In this interview, Takashi Iizuka was also asked about his thoughts on “#DelaySonicFrontiers” and whether he has the right to delay the release plan. In this regard, Takashi Iizuka said that there are no major problems with this work at present, and the team is quite satisfied with the results at this stage.
Takashi Iizuka revealed that “Sonic: Unknown Frontier” is not only still under stable development, but has also launched internal play tests for the target groups who love the “Sonic” series, and has received feedback from these players. There are a lot of positive reviews, and even players are willing to give a high rating of 80 to 90 points.
Because of this test result, Takashi Iizuka has incomparable confidence in “Sonic: Unknown Frontier”. He believes that the new work will be officially released and players will like it, so he hopes to deliver the finished product to players as soon as possible.
