Sonic Frontiers is well on its way to launch on Switch this coming Holiday 2023. Despite some mixed opinions toward the initial gameplay reveals via IGN during the month of June, reception was considerably more positive when Nintendo showcased the game during its Direct Mini: Partner Showcase just recently.
One thing for certain is that the game is a drastic departure from the Sonic games of yore, with ‘Open Zones’ being the main hook and exploration taking more of a centre stage. It definitely got us wondering, just how would such a game translate into 2D? Could it actually be done?
Well, it turns out that yes, it can. Created by KomliWorldGames, Sonic Frontiers 2D is a solid representation of what SEGA’s new title could actually look like in 2D, complete with all the new gameplay features showcased in recent gameplay videos. It even has a ‘Green Zone’ style Cyberspace level! Naturally, given this is a fan-made creation, there are some rough edges to note, but all in all, this is a pretty good take on Sonic Frontiers – we like it!
You can download the game and give it a try yourself right here.
