Today Sega released a new Japanese trailer for its upcoming Sonic game, Sonic Forces.

The trailer presents an overview of the game, starting with its main characters, Sonic, Classic Sonic and the custom avatar, with a less focused bird-eye view on the expanded cast which includes Tails, Eggman, the new villain Infinite and many more colorful personages.

Speaking of custom hero, we also get a juicy look at the ways we can customize him or her, including the fact that they’ll appear in cutscenes with the looks we selected. Incidentally, clearing missions will unlock avatar parts that will then be usable to further customize your own alter-ego.

We then get a look at the wispon, which are a mix of gadget and weapon that our avatar can use in order to both kill enemies and traverse in different ways depending on what kind we use. Another feature showcased is the W.Boost that the avatar and Sonic can perform together, which incidentally is the fastest you can go in the game.

You can check it out below, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy a look at the rental avatar feature, some recent screenshots about the wispon, and our report on the Switch version of the game, directly from the development team.

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

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
