Today, during a livestream hosted by Sega, PR and Social Media Manager Aaron Webber teased fans about upcoming Sonic Forces news.
Webber mentioned that more info on the new-gen game are coming “soon,” explaining that since Sonic Mania is very close to its release (on August 15th on consoles), Sega is giving it more focus, but as soon as Mania is released, there will be a “ton” of Sonic Forces news.
For those who have lives under the proverbial rock, Sonic Forces is in development directly by the internal Sonic Team at Sega in Japan, directed by Morio Kishimoto, Produced by Shun Nakamura and featuring music by Tomoya Ohtani. Its production is schedule to celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary (the game will actually come a year late for that, to be precise).
If you want to see more about the game, you can check out some recent gameplay from Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong, and watch the latest trailer showing the new villain named “Infinite” and his music track, on top of another video showcasing the “Fist Bump” theme song, more gameplay, and a trailer from E3 2017.
