Sonic Frontiers director reveals plans for next Sonic game

Sonic Limits just released in November, but it looks like Sega is already working on the next Sonic the Hedgehog game. Director Morio Kishimoto revealed as such on Twitter, and offered an interesting glimpse into Sega’s plans for the future. Apparently the next game in the series will emphasize multiple playable characters, and Sega is looking to expand and refine the “open zones” introduced in Sonic Limits. Interestingly, Sonic Team wants to avoid overusing classic Sonic locations, such as Green Hill Zone and Chemical Plant Zone.

Kishimoto’s desire to add additional playable characters isn’t too surprising. The director is a big fan of the Sonic Adventure games, which put a big focus on Sonic’s supporting cast. While Sonic Limits only let players master the blue blur, a free DLC update for the game coming out this year will add more playable characters. Despite this, Kishimoto wants to focus on making good single-player games, though multiplayer games aren’t completely off the table.

The battle inside Sonic Limits took inspiration from Sonic’s live-action movies and it looks like Kishimoto wants to keep adding more depth to the combat. The director was also not entirely happy with the way the story was handled Limitsand wants to improve that, while also giving players a better understanding of the characters.

All in all, these comments are very interesting! Sonic Limits actually performed quite well for Sega, selling over 2.5 million copies and receiving fairly good reviews. Despite that success, the company still seems to be looking at what they can improve on and how they can make things more fun for both longtime fans and those just starting to play the games after seeing the Paramount movies. Five years passed between the release of sonic powers and Sonic Limitsso it will probably be some time before we get to see how things fall apart!

Are you excited to see what Sega does with the next Sonic game? Did you enjoy it Sonic Limits? Let us know in the comments or share your thoughts directly on Twitter at @Marcdachamp to talk about all things gaming!
