New Sonic Frontiers Gameplay Leak Shows Cyloop Move in Action – Effinate Games


Since its launch, Sonic Frontiers has truly been a subject of excitement. SEGA claims that they have added brand new elements to the game that have never been seen before in the franchise. For the first time, Sonic will fight his enemies in an open world. Sonic will have new maneuvers and powers at his disposal, making him stronger than ever.

Sonic Frontier’s latest trailers gave us a glimpse into the game’s mechanics and settings. The game has also been subject to many gameplay leaks. We already know that the game will feature a skill tree for the first time. And one of the most exciting abilities included in it is the Cyloop move.

Sonic Frontier’s Cyloop Move

With his brand new skill, Cyloop, Sonic can now run in a circle while leaving a blue energy trail behind him. Once the circle of blue energy is closed, he will unleash a force that can either hit multiple enemies at once, pierce the opponent’s armor, or discard large portions of the bosses.

The move can be seen in action thanks to the following video:

Some of the implementations of Cyloop have been shown in the video. Interestingly, different cyloop patterns give you different rewards. A memory sign by drawing a heart, an unlimited lift through an infinity sign and coins through a circle are some of the examples shown above. There may also be other skills through this move that we will see when the game launches.

Several new elements in the game

The skill tree as mentioned above is a new concept for the franchise. The skill tree will help evolve Sonic into his strongest version. While unlocking abilities was in previous entries, the skill tree is definitely new. The skill tree has 11 different unlockable skills, 3 of which are unlocked by progressing through the story. This will really help SEGA as they want to establish this title as the main title for many years.

‘Auto-combos’ is another skill tree ability just like Cyloop. This skill will automatically activate battle skills when you reach a certain combo. This will definitely help people who don’t want hard gameplay. For those of you out there, you can disable the skill.

The first Sonic Frontiers trailer was definitely underwhelming as it looked more like a homemade project. But SEGA improved with the new trailers and the game is shaping up to be the biggest Sonic game to date.

It will be out on November 8, 2022 and available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Microsoft Windows.
