On the Daily program: Sonic Frontiers finally gives us some news after several months, Pokémon Violet Scarlet has unveiled a new trailer rich in new information and a player smashes a record on Elden Ring. The Daily, let’s go!
Sonic Frontiers finally unveils gameplay!
Sonic Frontiers is the next installment of the blue hedgehog in open-world. The game was unveiled last December during the Game Awards and since then it has been quite discreet. In a short trailer, SEGA shows us some gameplay footage where we can see Sonic wandering through vast green plains at lightning speed. A few elements that will spice up the exploration of this gigantic open world: we can see him sliding on rails, running in a wheel used to scan the area, or even defeating enemies sometimes much larger than him. Unsurprisingly, speed seems to be at the heart of the gameplay, whether in exploration or in combat. The video is punctuated by the piano notes of Tomoya Ohtani, one of the key composers of the license. The game clearly seems to be inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Sonic Frontiers is described by SEGA as the most ambitious Sonic game ever made. The game is scheduled for the end of the year on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch.
We finally have information on the next versions of Pokémon
That’s it, we finally have more info on the new versions of Pokémon, Pokemon Scarlet/Purple. The games take place in a new region with Hispanic influences. We discover two new teachers (first in the saga) Olim for Scarlet and Turum for Violet, but also our potential rival, Menzi. Certain areas were also presented to us, such as a desert, plains or snow-capped mountains, making these titles the first real open world of the license. The technique still leaves something to be desired… On the other hand, the real surprises were of course the 4-player co-op, but also the revelation of the two new legendaries, Koraidon and Miraidon, clearly inspired by the South American serpent gods. The first represents the future, and the other the past. The game will be released on November 18, 2022 for Nintendo Switch.
A player smashes a record on Elden Ring
Elden Ring is the success we present more. The game has already sold over 13 million copies since its release last February. If it has all the weapons in hand to be crowned Game of the Year at the end of the year, more and more players are trying the experience of speedrun: a practice consisting in finishing a game as quickly as possible, with or without rules. Let’s take a look at the performance of the American player SaltySev. The category of speedrun presented here is the Any% No WrongWrap, i.e. the player must reach the end of the game using all the glitch he wants, except the teleportation glitch . The goal here is simply to reach the end credits. The player completed Elden Ring in 48 minutes and 26 seconds live on his Twitch channel. The previous record was held by AltF4jp4 and its 49 minutes and 31 seconds, unbeaten for more than a week. But the Salty Sev considers his run only “correct”. So expect to see a new record fall in the coming weeks.
