The legendary blue hedgehog created by Sega returns in Sonic Frontiers – a 3D platformer that seeks to integrate all the traditional Sonic gameplay elements like rings and bumpers into an open-world formula that’s a first for the franchise. Solving puzzles, hunting down collectibles, and battling enemies are all on the can-do list of Sonic Frontiers.
Because Sonic Frontiers is now a 3D open-world game with its environments able to be explored at the player’s whim and not a 2D on-the-rails experience, that means it’s likely going to take even longer than usual to complete. So, we’ve compiled all the information on Sonic Frontiers length and how long it will take to beat Sega’s latest outing.
Below, we’ll detail everything we know about how long you can expect to be in control of the super-speed hedgehog before the credits roll. The Loadout team works hard on keeping our guides up to date, so this information will change based on what we learn as the release date draws nearer.
Sonic Frontiers length
Sonic Frontiers will take around 20 to 30 hours to finish, but double that if you want to see everything the game has to offer. This is what the game’s director, Morio Kishimoto, told IGN during Summer Game Fest.
This is quite a bit longer than Sonic Forces, which takes around four hours to beat, or Sonic Mania, which takes just over five hours to complete. This means that you will be playing Sonic Frontiers at least four times the amount of time compared to some of the latest Sonic games – and that’s if you’re not a completionist.
