Anyone who knows me probably knows that I am a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog. From the classic Sonic games on the Sega Genesis to the 3D Sonic Adventure games, and even the awful ones that came after, I have stuck with the blue blur. Yesterday, SEGA® hosted its panel at SXSW where they announced more details on Sonic Mania and the previously unnamed Sonic Project 2017, now dubbed Sonic Forces. The newest 3D Sonic game seems to be similar to some of the more recent releases, with Sonic Colors specifically coming to mind. A short gameplay trailer was released at SXSW along with the announcement which I’ve linked below via IGN’s YouTube channel. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will break from SEGA’s trend of making awful Sonic games over the last generation of consoles, and maybe even bring those adorable Chao back ♥. I’ll definitely have my eye on this so I’ll be sure to post more as information comes to light.
