The Sonic Team veteran is considering ditching the boost system for the next game



Sonic Frontiers, generally speaking, has been a positive step for the franchise, making some dramatic changes in an attempt to set the Hedgehog on the right path. The game’s director, Morio Kishimoto, is clearly in the business of shaking things up, with previous starring roles on Sonic Colors. Sonic Lost World. As for the next main entry, it looks like Kishimoto is mulling over whether or not to keep the boost mechanic.

Responding to fans on Twitter, he says he’s thinking about leaving the functionality out of the next game:

He also talks about it hereWhere the translation says he wants to “challenge the level design without the boost [Adventure] series.” In other words, Kishimoto is thinking of a game that replaces Boost for something closer to the Sonic adventure games.

Boost has been a staple of Sonic titles for a very long time now, with many series fans growing up with the functionality. This allows the hedgehog to run through 3D stages at breakneck speed and knock enemies out of the way. Getting rid of it would be a bold move.

Of course, many design decisions will be made and then changed during a game’s development, so who knows what the next 3D Sonic will look like. We imagine it will at least build on the more open structure of Frontiers, but beyond that, we’ll just have to wait and see.

what do you think? Would you like to see the boost mechanic go away? What do you want the next game to be like? Let us know in the comments section below.
