Someone should pop some Duct tape on Sega and Sonic Frontiers! Following the news that a Taiwanese store had some promotional material for the game that revealed a November release date and some upcoming DLC, Sega’s Japanese YouTube account accidentally uploaded a short trailer for the game.
The company has since removed it, but not before eagle-eyed fans (and Nibel) on Twitter spotted the trailer, which contained a release date — 8th November.
This is slightly different from the date we reported last Friday, but seeing as it’s from Sega itself, it’s likely to be correct.
Sonic Frontiers is due to appear during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live, which kicks off at 11am PDT / 7pm BST tonight. At this point, it seems very likely that the release date will be officially confirmed then, and Sega just accidentally uploaded the Japanese version of the trailer a bit too early. Oopsie!
Perhaps Sega could use this adorable little character, Koko, to distract us from this accidental reveal?
