Sonic Frontiers Fans Claimed Ripping Off Old Sonic Games

Sonic Frontiers is available at Gamescom in Cologne right now. Some fans have noticed that some levels look familiar to Sega’s take against an open-area Sonic.

Twitter user @mikesterp1 posted two videos that compared off-screen Sonic Frontiers footage with Sonic Unleashed clips and Sonic Generations. And yes, there are some very obvious similarities between the playing levels. The footage contains some cuts that draw attention to similar enemy placements, platforms, and loops. This is necessary to contextualize the whole thing. However, there are some merits to the criticism.

But I wonder how many platformers could withstand similar scrutiny. As many pointed out in their response, I think some Mario games have similar geometry and instances with enemy placement. The Sonic Frontiers clips have a few nuances that make it more than simple skin. However, it makes it difficult to see if this issue is not directly related to level design but that Sonic games only ask for a small number of tasks in standard run and jump levels. It could allow us to play as other characters in Sonic games.
