Just when you thought you were rid of all the Sonic the Hedgehog news yesterday, Gamescom Opening Night Live host Geoff Keighley goes and reveals we'll have to sit through a Sonic Frontiers trailer during his show later this month. The man says to expect "a world premiere new look and news" concerning the blue blur's next game. Since it's still slated to launch for PS5, PS4 this year, a release date is expected.
Keighley confirmed Sonic will be at the show in a tweet yesterday, which also provides us with a look at a new piece of art — presumably the key art — and it looks fairly nice:
Sonic Frontiers is just one of more than 30 games set to feature during Gamescom Opening Night Live, with the show currently set to take up two hours of your time. Another title confirmed for the show is a new sci-fi IP from the Subnautica team, although we don't know if it'll be hitting PS5, PS4 yet.
The general reaction to Sonic Frontiers has been mixed to say the least up until now, so let's hope Sonic fans find something to like in this upcoming glimpse. The showcase takes place on Tuesday, 23rd August 2022 at 7pm BST / 11am PT / 2pm ET. Let us know if you're tuning in in the comments below.
