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.
