Sonic Frontiers Gets A Big Black Friday Discount At Select Retailers

Read Time:1 Minute

Sonic’s return to the mainstream has been fantastic over the last couple of years, and with the momentum of two successful feature films behind the blue blur, Sega’s iconic mascot hit the ground running in Sonic Frontiers recently. While it’s a game that definitely has room for improvement, the flaws can easily be overlooked when you dig into what makes Sonic Frontiers special.

Right now, you can save big on Sonic Frontiers at multiple retailers, including Amazon. Nintendo Switch and Xbox Series X owners can grab Sonic Frontiers for only $29. PlayStation users will have to pay a bit more, as the game is discounted to $35 on PS4 and PS5. If Amazon sells out, you can grab Sonic Frontiers for any platform at Best Buy for $40.

A massive collection of “open-zone” gameplay that feels like a mix between Death Stranding and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Sonic Frontiers gives you all the space you need to go fast, strike hard, and collect tons of rings along the way. Available on PPS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, and PC, it runs best on newer hardware that can handle the scope of Sega’s grand vision for the future of Sonic.

While the massive sandboxes are the main event of this game, there’s also a delightful number of retro-inspired levels that riff fantastically on Sonic’s Sega Genesis glory days, putting a new spin on classic stages.

For more gaming deals, you can grab titles such as Demon’s Souls, Death Stranding: Director’s Cut, and Returnal for a bargain price right now.

“Running around at the speed of sound might be a mantra of the fleet-footed hedgehog, but Sonic Frontiers is at its best when you’re given time to simply explore,” Richard Wakeling wrote in GameSpot’s Sonic Frontiers review. “The music is calming and also solemn at times–even if it knows when to burst into life with a punk rock energy–and there’s even a fishing minigame that lets you earn rewards while slowing down the pace a step further. It’s easy to fall into a zen-like flow as you traverse each island, rattling off objectives as you happen upon them.”
