During Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PlayStation Live coverage from the show floor at E3 2017 in Los Angeles, Sega showcased a nice batch of gameplay of its two upcoming Sonic games, Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania.

The two games are very different, with Sonic Forces bringing an entirely new direction to the franchise, and even giving players the chance to customize their own character.

Sonic Mania, on the other hand, is a love song to the fans of the veteran franchise, which had its ups and downs, but apparently still has a lot to give.

You can check the video below, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy Sonic Forces‘ new trailer from E3 2017, and the reveal of the custom heroes. If you’re more into the retro style of Sonic Mania, then you can grab a look at Chemical Plant Act 2, and at a trailer revealing the pre-orders.

Sonic Forces will release this Holiday season for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch. Sonic Mania will launch on the same platforms, but it will come earlier, on August 15th.
