Sonic Forces looks like a very standard game so far. Something that'll be fun but again nothing special.

TA, have you seen the silhouette in that video? It can't be super sonic.

Yes I have, but unless its Super Sonic it's not going to make much sense to me . If it's the likes of Tails or Sliver then Sonic Team can expect endless comments of its not a true Sonic game again, which I don't want to see

I think it could be good even though it's a new character. The problem in the past with new characters isn't the character themselves, but the lack of reason for their inclusion. I can see this new character being a survivor of Robotniks attack and his occupation with a sad backstory leading up to his/her desire to fight back or "join the resistance" as it were.

As Barry and George discuss, I wonder if we'll see a more adventure styled element from this character with Sonic(s) being what we know from Generations. If that is true, it's a little concerning. They could have easily have gained that gameplay from a number of side characters in the Sonic universe without creating a new character.

Just to put my thoughts out there, I don't have a problem with any of the characters in the Sonic universe as such. It makes perfect sense for there to be more then just a handful. The problem however is one of implementation into the games.

I don't think any of the other characters will have aged, I think perhaps we are seeing an alternate universe where Sonic was put into stasis or removed from time between the end of the Genesis era and Sonic Forces sees him return to a Bad Future.

Perhaps Classic Sonic's introduction will be similar to Generations but this time he is pulled into a portal that causes him to skip all of Adventure 1 to Lost World?

Then again, that doesn't explain how Classic and Modern are all of a sudden in this Bad Future (Bad Present?) together. I don't think they will get too technical with the time travel stuff, or if time travel will even be a factor.

I do think that Tails will simply be Tails in appearance, no aging, and that the third character is not tails and is not another Sonic.

That's a thought Barry. Maybe the game starts with Robotnik discovering an old ruin or something that opens a portal to the past which he traps Sonic in. Stuck in the past, modern Sonic teams up with classic to find a way back to his time. Meanwhile, Robotnik starts his attack on the world leaving Tails and friends to start a resistance where this new character joins.

Or may be that's not Classic Sonic. That's his son in the future. And the third char is his wife.

New banner for Sonic Mania on SEGA JP website.
Looks cool.



They changed the banner into this :



I don't know why but I kinda prefer the old one.
