Following the release of the Nintendo Switch version of the Sonic Forces demo, Sega also launched the PS4 version on the Japanese PlayStation Store.

Like the Switch version, the PS4 one offers a very limited look on a Modern Sonic stage, a boss battle against Eggman, and an Avatar Level that will let you try out the brand new Wispon gadgets using a randomly generated avatar.

When I say “limited,” unfortunately I mean that the demo lasts only one minute per level, after which the game will fade to black and you’ll have to restart, which isn’t exactly the most effective way of showcasing the game.

That being said, if you still wanna try it out, you can download it here. It’ll take 1.9 gigabytes of your hard disk, and it actually includes the English language, which possibly indicates that it might come to the west as well.

Of course, you’ll need a Japanese PSN account, and you can find out how to create and maintain one in our handy guide.

You can check out three official screenshots below. If you want to see more of the game, you can also watch a recent trailera first look at the rental avatar feature, some recent screenshots about the wispon, and our report on the Switch version of the game, gathered directly from the development team.

Sonic Forces will release on November 7, 2017, for PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
