Does the officialization of Sonic Frontiers during The Game Awards 2021 confirm the imminent arrival of Super Mario Odyssey 2?
Last week, The Game Awards crowned Deathloop, It Takes Two or Genshin Impact for the best games of the year. As in each edition, the meeting was also an opportunity for some video game publishers to formalize some announcements on upcoming releases. It was at this time that SEGA announced the release of Sonic frontiers. The game, already anticipated for several years, finally received its official announcement. Good news, it also raises the hopes of the players on the possible arrival of Super Mario Odyssey 2.
Sonic Frontiers revives an old rumor
It must be said that in 2019, when an anonymous post on 4chan announces the arrival of Sonic frontiers, it also details the release of a brand new Super Mario Odyssey 2, with in particular the presence of Luigi as a playable character (and his own Cappy), but also that of Yoshi, some 20 new worlds to visit, and more than a hundred side quests. The promise is significant, especially since it must be admitted, Super Mario Odyssey stands out as one of the best 3D games in the plumber’s career, despite the excellent Super mario galaxy and Super Mario Sunshine.

So far these leaks around Super Mario Odyssey 2 had not really aroused the interest of the players. But the formalization of Sonic frontiers, and the confirmation of all the predictions made by the 4chan message tends to validate the idea that a second opus of the title released in 2017 is indeed in preparation. In reality, that wouldn’t be so surprising. Most of the great games featuring Mario got their sequel, and fans’ expectations around Odyssey is indeed present. At a time when Nintendo is preparing a movie Super Mario, the arrival of the mustached plumber would be very good news for Big N, which for a few years now has lacked original games.
