Original article [Wed 7th Sep, 2022 01:05 BST]: We've heard some of the sounds from Sonic Frontiers, but what about the music? Sega has today unveiled the game's ending theme song will be 'Vandalize' - the newest song from rock band One Ok Rock.
This new Sonic song is described as a "collaborative effort" between Sega and One Ok Rock - reflecting the "vast gameplay environment" as well as the high-speed action players can expect from Sonic Frontiers when it arrives later this year.
Here's what the band's lead vocalist Taka had to say about the song:
“We partnered with SEGA on Sonic Frontiers because we relate to Sonic and how he’s taken on the world after getting his start in Japan. We are based in the US and have performed in Europe, Asia and South America, so we are extremely happy to be able to work with the world-renowned Sonic.”
“This collaborative song, Vandalize, is very upbeat and has some Japanese-inspired melodies while also sounding like a ONE OK ROCK song. It also matches the cool image of Sonic and his speed when he’s running, so please enjoy Vandalize along with Sonic as he speeds across Sonic Frontiers.”
If you want to listen to more than just a sample, One Ok Rock has shared the full track via its YouTube channel.
Sonic's new open-zone adventure will release on Switch and multiple other platforms on November 8th. What do you think of this ending song? Leave a comment down below.
