Gamescom to Host Sonic Frontiers “World First Public Outing”, Iizuka Meet and Greet

After announcing a world premiere new look of the game at Opening Night Live next week, you would expect Sonic Frontiers to make some kind of formal appearance on the show floor at Gamescom 2022. Well, luckily for anyone who’s attending, those expectations were right. SEGA has sent a press release confirming a playable demo as well as a meet and greet with Takashi Iizuka.

The publisher confirmed that Gamescom will play host to a “world first public outing” of the upcoming Sonic adventure, with a playable demo available to attendees at the SEGA booth. For anyone who’s making the trip to Germany for the show, you’ll be able to find that booth in Hall 9.

“Show-goers will be able to experience the wonders of Starfall Island in Sonic’s new open-zone platforming adventure,” reads the press release from SEGA.

Sonic Frontiers will also be present at TikTok’s Gamescom booth as well, oddly enough, so there’s that to look forward to as well. That booth will be in Hall 7 – and it will be there that Sonic series head Takashi Iizuka will make an appearance for a public meet and greet as well. That will take place on Friday 26 August, so make sure to pen that in your diary.

Gamescom will be taking place from Thursday 25th – Sunday 28th August at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, with an industry day taking place on Wednesday 24th August and a special Opening Night Live showcase on the evening of Tuesday 23rd. You can book tickets here.
