SonicForces-Logo-1024x713

In keeping with the theme of Sonic Team dredging up pop punk vocalists whose popularity climaxed around 2003, the Sonic Forces vocal theme ‘Fist Bump’ features Douglas Robb from Hoobastank. This is pretty in keeping with mainline Sonic Team-developed Sonic titles as we’ve previously experienced themes by Zebrahead and Jaret Reddick from Bowling for Soup.

We’d previously heard an untitled instrumental version of this track back in March, but this version features Robb singing along with the main guitar melody. Check it out below:

Sonic Forces releases on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC around Christmas this year and is being developed by Sonic Team.

E3 2017 is here and it’s brought lots of new details regarding Sonic Forces, Sonic Mania, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. First up we have a new trailer for Sonic Forces which shows us a little more gameplay of each of the 3 gameplay styles as well as the reveal of a new villain. The new villain looks like a Sonic-styled hedgehog but he has a glitchy look about him. His reveal is prefaced with the symbol for infinity which has many speculating the character is called Infinity or Infinite. Check out the trailer below:

IGN have also posted 7 minutes of direct feed Sonic Forces gameplay that showcases the PS4 Pro version of the game. Worth mentioning is the brief look at the avatar menu which sees the customer character wearing some rather snazzy Mega Drive-branded footwear. Sonic Forces launches on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch in Q4 2017. You can watch the new gameplay here:

Now we move onto Sonic Mania and more specifically the Nintendo Switch version. IGN have had some hands-on time with this version and shared 6 minutes of gameplay which features Act 2 of Green Hill Zone complete with a reveal of the stage’s boss. We also get another look at the Mirage Saloon stage. Sonic Mania launches on PC, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One on August 15th 2017. Take a look below:

Next up we have a new trailer of the PS4 Yakuza remake, Yakuza Kiwami. The game will release on August 29th 2017 and if you pre-order now you can secure a limited edition steelbook case. Check out the new trailer below:

Finally we have a new trailer for Yakuza 6 which also reveals the game’s subtitle, The Song of Life. The trailer reveals a portion of the game’s story which sees Kiryu discovering that Haruka has had a baby and Kiryu is trying to learn who the father is.

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:

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.

The first direct feed footage of Sonic Forces is now available to view below. It showcases Modern Sonic doing his thing in a post apocalyptic city-setting that’s interspersed with scenery from Green Hill Zone. What’s even more surprising is the footage is in 60fps. However there is currently no word on whether all versions of the game are going to run at 60fps, but this is certainly a promising demonstration. The gameplay is extremely similar to that of Sonic Generations and we even see the return of the red star rings. Take a look:

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.
