Today, SEGA released a brand new trailer for the upcoming Sonic Forces in Japan. In it, we get a great look at various gameplay aspects, including a breakdown of some of the characters we’ll encounter within.
The trailer (above) is obviously in Japanese, but you still get a great look at the game and how it will play regardless. The unfortunate aspect of the trailer being in Japanese is towards the end, where we seem to get a brief overview of various characters including Sonic, the player created Avatar, the weapons used in the game, and some other stuff. However, SEGA does have a track record for releasing an English trailer sometime later, so be on the lookout for that.
For those not familiar with the upcoming game, here’s the description for Sonic Forces:
Fight through a world destroyed by Dr. Eggman and a powerful new villain in Sonic Forces, the new fast-paced action platformer from the team that brought you Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations. Sonic Forces lets you speed through rolling ruined landscapes as Modern Sonic, catapult past perilous platforms as Classic Sonic, and use powerful new gadgets as your own Custom Hero Character.
- All Star Cast of Heroes and Villains – Battle an all star lineup of foes, including Dr. Eggman, Zavok, Metal Sonic, and Chaos, leading up to a fight against Sonic’s most powerful enemy yet, Infinite. Even Heroes need help, so you must team up to take back the world.
- Create Your Own Custom Hero – Create your own unique hero with hundreds of different accessories to chose from and share your character to fans around the world!
- Three Types of Gameplay – Speed through and fight hordes of robots as Modern Sonic, enjoy the fast paced side-scrolling action of Classic Sonic and run across iconic zones defeating enemies as your own custom hero.
Sonic Forces is set to launch worldwide on November 7 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
