The Sonic Frontiers director answers a post that offered advice on improving the contentious game’s final boss battle.
In a thread about the game’s final boss, the director of Sonic Frontiers made suggestions for improving it and its contentious nature. The epic boss battles in Sonic Frontiers, where the player uses Super Sonic in each one, are a topic of discussion among fans. The first three boss fights with Giganto, Wyvern, and Knight have all received praise for their size and ability to capture Sonic’s golden metamorphosis accurately and for having some heart-pounding music.

Needless to say, if you're yet to play through Frontiers and you'd prefer the final few stages of the game not be spoiled, you might want to stop reading here. Critique of Supreme has revolved around the Titan not being much more difficult to beat than Frontiers' previous three bosses. Infinite Cubes has suggested a complete overhaul of its phases and mechanics via a future update to make it more challenging.
While some fans are open to the ideas that were suggested to make the finale a better spectacle, others raised concerns about directly notifying a game director like this to offer critiques, especially when it opened up with calling it the worst boss fight in the series. Fans fear that since Kishimoto has stated he is open to the criticisms of Sonic Frontiers, along with him directly responding and considering to a fan's feedback like this, it can lead to others pestering him with their own ideas without considering boundaries.
What Kishimoto means by that hasn't been explained. Frontiers' roadmap for 2023 has already been revealed, and tweaks to the game's boss fights are nowhere to be seen. That doesn't mean the announced updates can't include them, of course, especially with additional story content, and the potential return of Sage, already announced. As for what else Sonic fans can expect in 2023, Sega has promised it will try to keep 2022's momentum going, labeling last year the biggest in the blue blur's history.
