Update #2 [Tue 25th Oct, 2022 15:30]: And here's Part 2! This is the second half of Prologue: Converge, which leads to Sonic and friends trying to get to Starfall Islands in time to stop Dr. Eggman.
We won't find out more about this scheme until Sonic Frontiers releases next month, but we do still have an animated short to come. So we'll keep you up to date.
Update [Tue 18th Oct, 2022 15:30 BST]: Part 1 of the comic is now live on Twitter! The official Sonic the Hedgehog account shared the four pages earlier today — all with alt text — so you can now see just what happens before the events of Sonic Frontiers.
The four pages shared have plenty of amusing references to past Sonic titles, particularly from Dr. Eggman.
Head on over to the official Twitter account or have a little read below:
Original article [Fri 14th Oct, 2022 16:00 BST]: Sega is speeding up on Sonic Frontiers info — although, has it really ever slowed down since the start of this summer? And today, the company has revealed that November's open-zone Sonic game will be getting a two-part digital comic and an animation, both of which are prequels.
Part 1 of the comic, called Sonic Frontiers - Prologue: Convergence, will be available online next Tuesday — 18th October — with Part 2 following not long after, though no date was specified. The prequel animation also doesn't have a specific release date yet, but Sega did say "soon", so maybe it won't be much longer!
Both plan to show what happened prior to the events of Sonic Frontiers and the animation was teased as part of Sega's Sonic Central broadcast back in June.
For now, Sega has given us a look at the comic's art, which has been drawn by Archie regular Evan Stanley. And, as always, she's done a fantastic job!
Sonic Frontiers is weeks away from its 8th November release date — geez, slow down, it's been a busy season! And yesterday, we got a good look at the game's combat and skill tree, and there's a lot more going on than in your average blue hedgehog game!
