For want of having given us many details on what awaits the players in Sonic Frontiers, the anniversary episode which will arrive paradoxically a little late, SEGA occupies as it can the ground, including linguistic one.
Sonic Frontiers will once again be fully localized in French. To celebrate thirty years of its mascot who never stops looking for himself, SEGA intends to offer a multilingual adventure, which will obviously place one for the language of Malik Bentalha:
Good news ! The teams have already worked hard to localize Sonic Frontiers and bring the series to new audiences..
In addition to the original dubbing and the French version, the characters in Sonic Frontiers will therefore speak German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish, to cast a wide net. Unfortunately, SEGA has not yet taken the care to reveal the cast of actors who will lend their voices in these different languages., even if Roger Craig Smith’s return to business should allow him to once again play the supersonic mascot. Side VF, one wonders why Alexandre Gilelt would not be once again invited, since he plays the hedgehog since Sonic Generations, the episode which celebrated the twenty of the series, CQFD.
But by consulting the details provided by SEGA, one can only wonder about certain choices of location, since Chinese and Korean subtitles will not be available on PS4, PS5 or Switch, and therefore “exclusive” to the PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series versions. A curious choice, difficult to explain at the moment.
Let’s hope that this singular linguistic approach finds an explanation, since the development of Sonic Frontiers is already longer than expected. Indeed SEGA, recently announced that it had been forced to postpone the festivities following negative feedback during the first tests.
We must now take patience, and wisely wait for Sonic Frontiers for the end of the year 2022 on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
