When Sonic Forces launched, it also had a patch released that bumped the game up to its 1.01 version. Naturally, people took the opportunity to dig deep into the update files and have come back with some interesting information, including new clothes to wear in the game as well as a Super Sonic transformation.
According to the datamine (which you can view a summary of above), there are files in the game that detail a shirt adorned with “Sanic,” an MS Paint version of Sonic that’s been popularized in recent years. Also revealed was a Super Sonic transformation that is still locked within the game, but can be viewed in the video above. Seeing as how it’s in the game, it’s likely that SEGA will release both at some point, but fans will just have to be patient until then.
For more on Sonic Forces, make sure to take a look at our review:
There’s a moment early on in Sonic Forces where Sonic says that it’s “not time for thinking. It’s time for running.” Not only does he perfectly describe his series’ design philosophy, he also sets the blueprint for who will enjoy this game. If you’re willing to turn your brain off for a few hours, and just take in the pure spectacle that is watching hundreds of Sonic characters fighting on a battlefield during a cutscene, then you’ll find a lot to enjoy here. It’s a really dumb game at its core, but it’s also just pure fun in a well-meaning, lighthearted package.
Sonic Forces is available now.
