The most important gaming news for December 27, 2021

You’ve got to love Sonic the Hedgehog rumors right? the PlayStation Database has Sonic Frontiers listed with a November 15, 2022 release date. Now, its possible this is just a placeholder date since Sega has not officially confirmed the release date for the first open-world (or open zone) Sonic game. The first trailer appeared at The Game Awards earlier this month and did confirm that the game is coming in 2022, so fingers crossed that November 15 is the official date.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas weekend, and welcome back to TheGamer’s daily news round-up. Even though we’re in the final week of the year, between Christmas and New Year’s, the pace of video game news isn’t slowing down. Today, we’ve got Sonic Frontiers rumors, a new Batman teaser, and more NFT rubbish, this time from Tom Holland, Spider-Man himself. We also have news from the most recent Twitch Play Pokemon event, as well as some fresh information on Final Fantasy 16. The most important news stories from Monday, December 27, 2021 are listed below.


  • Another week, another celebrity repping some new scam NFT. This time we’ve got Spider-Man star Tom Holland sharing a Spidey-inspired NFT from the recently minted “inBetweeners” series on Instragram, with the caption “I love this”. The NFTs were created by an artist named Gianpiero who has previously worked with celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Levis, and Justin Bieber. Like most NFT projects, inBetweeners are all the same teddy bear in different costumes, including Batman, Spider-Man, and Dexter from Dexter’s Lab. Something tells me Warner Bros. and Disney might not be on board with the project.

  • Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for next year’s Batman movie seemingly out of nowhere. Titled “The Bat and the Cat”, the trailer is all about the romantic relationship between Batman and Catwoman, aka Selina Kyle. The trailer also highlights Paul Dano’s villain Edward Nashton, better known as The Riddler. You can get a better look at Batman and Catwoman’s costumes in the latest issue of Empire Magazine.
