Sega's latest 'Sonic Central' broadcast went fast, but there were a lot of announcements throughout it. One of the highlights was the reveal of the Sonic Frontiers: Prologue.

This is a new animated special featuring Knuckles and will take place before the events of Sonic Frontiers. The "entire short" will be shared later this year, and well...that's all that's really been shared.

Here's a look at the few seconds showing Knuckles guarding the Master Emerald:

Apart from this, IGN's preview has also shared a little more about the story in Sonic Frontiers - referencing Sonic's team members Tails and Amy (thanks, Tails' Channel):

"After flying into a wormhole with Tails and Amy, Sonic finds himself separated from his friends and all alone on an isolated island, with nothing but an AI voice guiding him to collect the Chaos Emeralds."

So, there you go - Sonic's pals sound like they could be featured in some way or form in his upcoming adventure. Would you like to be able to play as them in Sonic Frontiers? Leave a comment down below.
