Sonic Frontiers 2023 Content Roadmap Announced

SEGA

Nearly a month out from its release, Sonic Frontiers is officially scheduled to receive content updates in 2023.

The game, which newly implemented an 'open-zone' gameplay feature similar to the likes of Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, has been released to favorable reviews from long-time fans and newcomers to the franchise alike. The content updates were announced on Twitter on Wednesday, confirming that the game indeed will see more add-ons in the near future.

Prior to the major content updates, a “Holiday Cheer Suit” cosmetic item for Sonic was also announced to commemorate the end-of-the-year holidays.
