Hopes for Multiplayer in Sonic Frontiers Are Frustratingly Fading

  • Sienna Granger

The latest installment in Sega's long-running Sonic the Hedgehog series, Sonic Frontiers, is due out soon, and fans are already speculating on what new features it might bring. One such potential new feature is a multiplayer mode, which was hinted at by director Morio Kishimoto while interacting with fans on Twitter. Although the developers have yet to officially confirm the feature, speculation continues as to whether it will appear in the game.

Kishimoto explained why Sonic Frontiers would not have a multiplayer mode by saying that it would be "difficult" to implement, in addition to the fact that all other elements of the game must meet fan demands. He also noted that while they always consider implementing such features during development, single-player offerings should take priority at this point because of limited resources and development timelines. This statement, of course, does not negate the hope of such features possibly appearing in a future update, but until then, we will have to make do with what we have now.

Players who want to play with their friends can find solace in some alternative games that focus on team play or cooperative missions; many modern platformers offer such experiences along with story modes, so gamers should take note if they're looking for something like this while waiting for future updates from Sega and the Kishimoto team at Sonic Team. The good news is that the current console generation makes it much easier for developers to release patches and content updates. So maybe one day we'll get our wish after all!


Sonic fans may feel a little disappointed by Kishimotos' comments, as it's unlikely that we'll see a full-fledged addition to the online multiplayer anytime soon. But rest assured that he hasn't completely ruled out the possibility of its appearance, which means there's still hope! For now, players can only patiently wait for further information on potential patches. Fortunately, thanks to the capabilities of modern consoles, such things can happen without too much trouble, so don't lose hope just yet!
