  • @Art wow, looks beautiful.



  • Yeah I'll give them that, it does look very pretty!



  • @Art

    The physics seem off when Sonic jumps on an enemy

    @ACardAttack I thought the same thing when I first watched it. Sonic looks like he weighs a lot.



  • Physics look similar to Genetations... which were a bit wonky but overall it was a solid game. I'm cautiously optimistic on this one...

    This time with Knuckles. He don't chuckle.

    You can now create your very own custom character in Sonic Forces.

    deviantArt tier original characters are now officially canon. I'm surprised Sega didn't do this ages ago. Now they're REALLY pandering to their fanbase.

  • I CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE MY FURSONA, ORIGINAL THE CHARACTER

    And the Press Release

    Sonic Forces™ Introduces New, Third Gameplay Style
    Burbank, California — May 16, 2017 —

    Today, SEGA® revealed the third gameplay style in Sonic Forces is a powerful gadget touting customizable character. For the first time in the Sonic series, players can create their own original Hero Character, and customize how the character plays and how it looks. This newly revealed playstyle in Sonic Forces is in addition to the previously revealed fast-paced action of Modern Sonic and the thrilling platforming of Classic Sonic.

    In this just announced gameplay style, players will be equipping their custom Hero Character with one of a variety of powerful unique gadgets called Wispons. Wisponsare an evolution of the Color Powers fromSonic Colors and double as both offensive abilities and as a way to platform through levels quickly. Along with the Wispon, the Hero Character will have a grappling hook they can utilize to quickly traverse across zones. Players can also customize the Hero Character’s looks by choosing and swapping between hundreds of accessories and outfit options to change the character’s appearance as they play through the game.

    There are seven base animal types that players can select from, each with varying special abilities:

    • Wolf – Automatically draws in rings when near them
    • Rabbit – Has longer invincible time after receiving damage
    • Cat – Keeps one ring after being hit
    • Dog – Restarts with five rings after the player dies
    • Bear – Blows away enemies with a homing attack
    • Bird – Flies high with double jump abilities
    • Hedgehog – Collects rings when getting damaged

    No matter what Hero the player chooses to create, it will be featured throughout the entire game. In a first for the Sonic franchise, a character the player creates will be a key part of the story, appearing not only in cut scenes, but by being a crucial element in helping Sonic reclaim the world from Eggman’s domination.

    Sonic Forces will be available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, & PC this Holiday. Join the Uprising to take back the world from Dr. Eggman.



  • This is just an objectively nice thing for Sega to make for Sonic fans. Perhaps it'll provide a more wholesome avenue for some of their creativity.



  • @Art You are a man amongst men.



  • Youtube Video

    Stardust Speedway just got locked as another remix stage. Lookin good. Also that animation.



  • Sonic Mania is looking amazing. I almost never pre-order things but I went and pre-purchased this immediately after this trailer (so as soon as the option became available).

    Played it last year at EGX and the gameplay is perfect while all of the levels shown thus far have looked amazing.

    This is also making me realise how much I miss Tails and Knuckles - they haven't been playable since the Sonic Advance games back in the early 2000s. :'-(
