SEGA has today announced that Sonic Frontiers has now sold more than three million copies worldwide, making it one of the fastest-selling Sonic the Hedgehog titles since the 1990s. Just in time for the first DLC content update to drop later tonight!
The company shared the news on its official Japanese Sonic Twitter account, pointing to the game’s recent accolades with the “Japan Game Awards 2022 Future Category Winner” and “Famitsu Dengeki Game Awards 2022 Best Action Adventure” award wins.
At last count, the game sold 2.9 million copies globally by early February – so it has in effect sold an additional 100k units in the last month or so. Which is an incremental boost for sure, but it still gets the open zone adventure up to that 3 million milestone!
We crunched some numbers and calculated that Frontiers is just 400k units away from surpassing Sonic Heroes to become one of the best-selling 3D Sonic the Hedgehog games ever. That’s very exciting!
Congratulations to Sonic Team and SEGA for the continued success of Sonic Frontiers! If you want to celebrate the DLC release with the rest of the Sonic Community, take a look at the special Achievements you can earn until the end of the month!
