As part of the Sights, Sounds, and Speed update, Photo Mode has been announced to arrive in Sonic Frontiers.

So you can capture your favourite gameplay moments on the Starfall Islands, here is how to use Photo Mode in the game

How do you use Photo Mode?

As mentioned in a PlayStation blog post by Thalia Piedra, Associate PR Manager at SEGA of America, you can use the Photo Mode by opening the pause menu. However, Photo Mode might be inaccessible during particular parts of the game.

By using the Photo Mode in Sonic Frontiers, you'll be able to take a variety of shots to "capture memories of your journey" - from being in the midst of battling enemies, rail grinding, Air tricks, or even taking nuanced shots of Sonic looking into the distance.

What's more, you'll even be able to pick between seven filters to give your snaps that added flare. Plus, you can get some help in framing your shot by either turning on the Photo Mode's grid or resetting the camera to alter a photo's mood and angle. 

The Sonic Frontiers Photo Mode will available on all of the game's released platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
