Sonic Frontiers is going to bring back plenty of familiar faces, but there will be some new ones as well. For example, we’ve caught a few glimpses of Sage (seen above) in trailers and screens, but we don’t know too much about her. It seems that’s by design, as Sage is crucial to Sonic Frontiers’ story.
In an interview with PlayStation, Sonic Team spoke up about Sage in a bit more detail. We don’t get a lot of insight into the character, but Sonic Team does make it clear that Sage is going to steer Sonic Frontiers from a story perspective.
We can’t say much about the new character, Sage, as she is central to the mysterious story and setting. However, we did a lot of trial and error with the design of her as a young girl that was both mystical and mysterious, while adjusting her proportions to make sure she fit in to the world of Sonic. We paid attention to how she would be perceived from her design and in cutscenes, as she is on the opposing side, trying not to give her too much of a mythical or religious meaning.
