The official mascot of SEGA, Sonic, is rolling his way into the new upcoming title that is releasing in a couple of weeks. Like Mario, Sonic has also transcended a dimension; Sonic Frontiers is the first truly open-world game in Sonic the hedgehog’s history. It is set in the Starfall Islands and will incorporate old and modern features alike.
Sonic Frontiers incorporates basic Sonic mechanics built from scratch that can be enjoyed by veterans and newbies alike. Sonic will be able to traverse the vast green fields, dash, and roll his way through using classic gameplay features to crack puzzles, fend off enemies, and discover various regions.
- The sound director of the Sonic series and the Sonic Frontiers has affirmed in a tweet that Sonic Frontiers will reportedly incorporate a lot of soundtracks.
- The reason being each Cyber Space and Guardian battle will feature unique soundtracks.
- The community has shown a lot of excitement over the confirmation.
Sonic Frontiers’ sound director, Tomoya Ohtani, has recently made a tweet confirming that the title will feature a wide variety of soundtracks. As per Tomoya, a massive amount of tracks will be used during Cyber Space and Guardian’s battle. Tomoya cites that unique music will play out for each Cyber Space event and Guardian battle.
Why does the Sonic Frontiers soundtrack have so many tracks? One reason is that we have tracks specific to each Cyber Space & Guardian’s Battle🎼

The community has commemorated the tweet by the sound director and shown great interest in how the tracks may differ. So far, all the soundtracks we have heard in various leaks and official gameplay have sounded quite soothing to the ear. However, we have hardly scratched the surface, as there is much more to relish.
If you are unfamiliar, Cyber Space Zones are portals that direct to some classic 2D and 3D levels of varying styles, which are reminiscent of earlier games in the franchise. In Sonic Frontiers, every Cyber Spaces will be themed after a stage from the previous Sonic installments.
The overall soundtrack has been given great importance in Sonic Frontiers. For instance, the total length of the Sonic Frontiers’ soundtrack album is more than startling 6 hours. According to Tomoya, it is the largest Sonic OST he has supervised thus far. The overall album’s length also shows the game’s longevity.
Yes, the whole 150 tracks last 6 hours 37 minutes and is the largest SONIC OST I've been in charge of so far! 🤯 https://t.co/DLCeJsb0D4

We have only heard light and upbeat music in the trailers and the official gameplay since Sonic has mainly explored the vast green fields of Starfall Islands in them. Tomoya previously mentioned that combat music would alter the Open Zone music to better match the underlying moment and content.
Sonic Frontiers is slated for a November 8, 2022, release, considering the title is not delayed, which is unlikely at this point. It will come out on the following platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
In addition, the system requirements for Sonic Frontiers were recently revealed on Steam, do check that out as well for more info.
