    SEGA has put out a trailer for its upcoming modern Sonic game, Sonic Forces. This title is the 25th anniversary game for the Sonic franchise, despite releasing a year late. It appears to be a sequel to 2011's Sonic Generations, featuring both Classic and Modern Sonic. This specific trailer shows off Classic Sonic in a new rendition of Green Hill Zone. Sonic Forces is set to launch Holiday 2017, for Switch, PC, PS4, and XBO.

    Well... at least they figured out they need to zoom the camera out far enough to see where you're running. It still doesn't look like anything I'd want to play, but good on them for learning.

    Sonic games cannot be good anymore they are just sonic cult cashgrabs imo, I mean sonic team doesn't put their heart and soul into this, the open world fan game (I cannot remember the name, Sonic Utopia maybe?) Is better than anything they have produced.

    If it still runs with noticiable frame drops on day 1, that means the swtich version will be the worst one out there.

    In a world where Sonic Mania (GOTY 2017) exists this is even more embarrassing than the "classic" gameplay in Sonic Generations. I guess Sonic Team just wonder why bother to implement real physics when they can just place boost pads everywhere?

    And that music is awful. Comparing this and Sonic Mania it's funny to see how much real passion in a project can make a difference even given the difference in team sizes.

    What will it take for sonic fans to be satisfied?

    It is awful isn't it? That noisiness in the tones makes my ears bleed.

    Why the FUCK are they using the obnoxious jumping sound of Sonic CD?
    What's wrong with the original jumping sound of Sonic 1, 2 and 3&K?
    I fucking despise that jumping sound with the burning passion of a thousand suns.

    The real question is if it's functional. I don't want to be falling through the level or jumping infinitely. Sega needs to learn that kids can wait rather than just rushing the game for them. Those little bastards can wait whether they like it or not. lol

    Maybe it's just me, or the way YT handled the footage with its compression and whatnot, but the footage was hurting my eyes. It was one thing when it was fully 2D\, but the speed, lighting, even grass detail, and such at high speeds in 3D was beginning to give me a headache.

    I gotta ask. What is the point of classic Sonic gameplay in these 3D sonic titles, if we're actually going to be getting standalone true classic Sonic games like Sonic Mania?! I mean in Sonic Generations it made sense, classic Sonic gameplay had been attempted to be recreated at the time, but was mostly a failure (looking at you Sonic 4), so it was a great opportunity to let that oldschool gameplay shine again. But now we're in an era where it is getting to shine again in the way that we all always wanted, so why also shoehorn him into this Sonic Forces game? Seems unnecessary, and unfocused. Not gonna lie, I'm much more looking forward to Sonic Mania at this point than I am Sonic Forces.

    It's like New Super Mario Bros and a Mario 3D game. Except Sonic Mania is far superior to NSMB.
