SonicForces-Logo-1024x713

In one of the most self-aware moves I’ve ever seen from SEGA, Sonic Forces will include a customisable character that you can create. This custom character is the third playable character option that was teased for inclusion in Sonic Forces and they come with additional abilities that include a grappling hook and a flamethrower.

The customisable character will have 7 species for you to build your character from and each of them has specific extra abilities. The 7 species are listed below:

Rabbit — Has longer invincible time after receiving damage
Wolf — Automatically draws in rings when near them
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

You can check out the first footage of the customer character in action via the trailer below:

We also get an extended look at the custom character in action in the dilapidated city stage which is now officially known as Park Avenue. Check it out below:

SonicForces-Logo-1024x713

SEGA have unveiled the first extended look at Classic Sonic’s gameplay from Sonic Forces. It resembles his gameplay from Sonic Generations very closely except keen-eyed viewers have noticed his move-set may have been expanded to include the drop-dash from Sonic Mania.

The stage featured is a remixed version of Green Hill Zone that has been flooded with sand, a result of “the heavy desertification caused by Eggman’s industries”. Check out the gameplay trailer by clicking below:

Sonic Forces is scheduled for release in Winter 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Its development is being lead by Sonic Team.

Night Trap to Get 25th Anniversary Re-Release on PS4 & Xbox One

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

nighttrap

Cult teen-horror FMV title Night Trap (which SEGA fans will remember for its infamous SEGA/Mega-CD port) is to be re-released on PS4 and Xbox One for the game’s 25th anniversary.

Originally developed for the unreleased Hasbro Control-Vision, the FMV adventure game was originally supposed to use VHS tapes and it’s these tapes that have been sourced to provide the in-game video used in this 25th anniversary port.

The port is not being handled by SEGA but an independent studio called Screaming Villains. Screaming Villains have also made the game’s theme song available for free download from their website.

Limited Run Games will also be producing a physical release for the PS4 and the artwork has been made to resemble the American SEGA CD and 32X artwork. While pre-orders are not available yet, it might be worth subscribing to their mailing list so you’re the first to know when the physical version will be made available.

Project Sonic 2017 is Sonic Forces, First Gameplay Revealed at SXSW

Friday, March 17th, 2017

SonicForces-Logo-1024x713

The final title for Project Sonic 2017 has finally been revealed at SXSW. The game will be called Sonic Forces and will follow a similar gameplay style to Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations. The first footage of the game in action is currently only available via off-screen recordings from SXSW but you can view it in the following SEGA News Bits video:

The gameplay shows a ruined city that is interspersed with scenery that appears to have been taken from Green Hill Zone. This has lead many to speculate that the game will follow a plot that sees Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic’s worlds colliding and creating stages that look like they’ve fused together.

Sonic Forces will launch on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC in Winter 2017.
