Last week we brought you the sad news of Sonic Mania being delayed as SEGA believes in producing quality games instead of releasing games early. Along with that, we mentioned that we’re waiting for new footage on another project that was announced at the same time as Sonic Mania, now officially dubbed Sonic Forces.
A 30-second gameplay video was revealed after the announcement during a panel discussion at SXSW last week. It features a look at Modern Sonic careening through partially destroyed city environments whilst still being bombarded with what seems like mortar fire of some sorts, accompanied by robots running rampant in the streets and some colossal mechanical beasts demolishing the city. The gameplay seems fast and frantic. If it wasn’t then it wouldn’t be Sonic, would it?
Check out the footage below and let us know what you think of the new and shiny Modern Sonic, which is set for release towards the end of 2017.
