Sonic Frontiers, despite being out barely more than a month, has sold two and a half million copies according to SEGA.
Sonic the Hedgehog’s latest adventure has proved a little divisive, certainly. We had fun with it but found it had more than a few flaws. In our review we concluded that it was inconsistent, “…a grab-bag full of ideas, all pulled off with varying degrees of quality”. But Sonic Frontiers is still the most striking thing SEGA has done with the character in long time. Well, unless you count kissing that human princess.
And it looks as if their willingness to borrow from Breath of th.. sorry, “experiment”, has paid off. It’s been barely a month since it was released and this open world Sonic game has shifted over two million copies, hitting the two-and-a-half million mark. That’s more than Sonic Mania sold in a year, in fact.
Could Sonic Frontiers hit the five million mark next month? This Christmas, will children be waking up to copies of the game? It’s possible copies will end up under Christmas trees, but we doubt it’ll smash the five million mark just yet. Sales tend to drop off post-release, though Sega does plan on supporting the game with additional content.
