Sonic Forces' Character Creator Will Bring Your Fan-Fic To Life

Sonic the Hedgehog is pretty damn cool, but can he compete with Chester the Bespectacled Wolf-Dog? Sonic Forces will allow players to create their own animal heroes to run alongside everyone's favourite blue blur.

Announced via official trailer, Sonic Forces will include a character creator for crafting your own furry personas. (If only there was a better word for that...) You can watch some of the character creation in the trailer below:

There are seven different animal types to choose from, each with different abilities:

Wolf -- Automatically draws in rings when near them

Rabbit -- Has longer invincible time after receiving damage

Cat -- Keeps one ring after being hit

Dog -- Restarts with five rings after the player dies

Bear -- Blows away enemies with a homing attack

Bird -- Flies high with double jump abilities

Hedgehog - Collects rings when getting damaged

Finally, you can live your dream of being a speedy rabbit with attitude or a sassy cat with a very large hat. So grab a pen, sit down, and plan your perfect fan-fic friendly character to play as when the game arrives later this year.


Comments

    Time to avoid the comments of every Sonic Forces video ever so I don't have to listen to the sheeple saying "furry" and "DeviantArt" and "autism" about what is essentially a pretty cool feature in a possibly good game.

    All three of which I've already seen in a single comment on a Youtube video already.

    I have so much nostalgic value attached to Sonic. I want to love it again.. But something needs to change because the current look and feel of the franchise is a bit meh.

    Goddammit! I had all my money down on it being Bubsy.

    The only thing I want from this announcement is people doing runs of this game as either Sonichu, or Coldsteel the Hedgehog.

    This is either going to be hilarious or awful.

    It actually looks good. Im more interested in Mania, but I'll keep an eye on this one.
