Sonic Frontiers ‘Combat & Upgrades’ Trailer – Gematsu

SEGA released a new trailer for sound borders introduce fights and upgrades.

Get the latest details below.

sound borders presents a new take on the action-adventure and platform genres by combining blazing speed with fiery combat.

Skill tree and upgrades

For the first time, Sonic has a skill tree full of exciting and powerful new abilities to learn.

To unlock new skills, you will need to collect enough skill coins from fallen enemies and breakable items around the islands.

Sonic also has his standard moveset including a homing attack, Drop Dash, and Stomp at the start of the game. While these moves are effective against normal enemies, you’ll need to level up and unlock new skills if you want. face bigger and stronger enemies waiting for you on the Starfall Islands.

A normal enemy on Kronos Island is nothing compared to those on later islands, so be sure to collect the Red Seeds of Power and Blue Seeds of Defense to boost your stats and give you a fighting chance.

Combos and Abilities

As the game progresses and Sonic levels up, so do your enemies. Completing combos is a good way to gain the upper hand during battle, especially when paired with a new skill called Phantom Rush.

Sonic’s combo meter will fill up after attacking enemies consecutively. Once the combo meter is maxed, Phantom Rush is activated and your attack power will be increased until the meter reaches zero.

To inflict massive amounts of damage in a short burst, use Sonic Boom, a long-range, high-velocity kick that unleashes shockwaves on the enemy.

Another option for dealing high damage to your enemies is Wild Rush, a flashy zigzag attack that sends you crashing into your target with great force. It’s a quick and sleek way to hit your enemies hard while dodging incoming fire.


Some enemies in sound borders have a shield or barrier that protects them. Break their shield with Cyloop, then deal as much damage as possible before it goes back up.

If your opponent hits you, just use the Cyloop ability on the ground to collect more rings and resume the fight.


During the fight, you will have to study your opponents and determine the best strategy to face them.

Guardian encounters will require more than just using your homing attack. Many of them urge you to first engage with their unique combat mechanics before reaching their weak point.

Once you have an opening, you can distribute any skills you have unlocked from the skill tree.

Experimenting with new abilities and discovering each enemy’s weakness will help you defeat them easily.


Use your enemies’ moves against them using parry during combat.

A visual cue lets you know when an enemy is about to attack. If you react quickly enough, you can parry it and follow up with your own counterattack.

Using all of these skills and more gives you tons of options to become the most formidable force on the frontier. Master your approach to combat and teach your enemies not to mess with Sonic the Hedgehog!

sound borders is set to release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on November 8.
