A guide for Sonic's open-zone adventure
Guide books, or game guides as they’re usually referred to as, used to be a very big thing here in the states. Then, as time rolled on and the internet started to spread, the desire/need for guide books cooled off quite considerably. They’re still around, but not anywhere near as prevalent as they used to be.
Over in Japan, the situation is quite different. For whatever reason, Japanese gamers still have a lot of love for game guides. Big-name releases still get guide books released alongside them, and the latest example of that is Sonic Frontiers.
An official Sonic Frontiers guide book has been revealed for Japan, and it’s set to launch on November 8th, 2022, the same day as the game itself. This guide book has all the usual trappings, offering details on enemies, items, in-game locations, tips and tricks, and much more.
Along with that, the game guide packs in a sticker sheet, which you can see above. Lastly, the guide also includes a double-sided poster. As you might have guessed, anyone looking to grab this guide outside of Japan will have to find an importer.
