SEGA will release the “Sights, Sounds, and Speed” update for Sonic Frontiers on March 22 at 5:00 p.m. PT / 8:00 p.m. ET, the company announced. It is the first of three Sonic Frontiers content updates slated for 2023 and adds new features including a Jukebox, Photo Mode, and new challenge modes.
Here is an overview of the update, via SEGA:
- New Challenge Modes – After completing the main story campaign, players can access new challenge modes—Cyber Space Challenge and Battle Rush—via the title screen. The Cyber Space Challenge is a time-attack mode where players will compete against the clock to complete multiple Cyber Space stages in a row. Additionally, Sonic Frontiers will offer Battle Rush, a timed-battle mode where you fight multiple enemies, Guardians and Titans in one go.
- Photo Mode – To capture memories of their time on the Starfall Islands, players can open the pause menu to access Photo Mode, which will pause gameplay and bring up a camera that is freely moveable.
- Jukebox – Players can listen to their favorite Sonic songs all throughout the Starfall Islands with the new Jukebox. With 53 song tracks available, players will have instant access to 13 songs, and can unlock the remaining 40 songs by collecting Sound Memories on each island.
The two remaining updates will add new features, challenges, playable characters, and more.
Sonic Frontiers is available now for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam.
