revealed a third new game style feature today: customizable characters. Players can create their own original character, customize the look of the character, and how it plays.
Players can also equip their customized character with a unique gadget, known as a Wispon. Wispons are an evolution of powers from Sonic Colors
(released for the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS). These powers can be used to advance through a level quickly as well as add offensive capabilities. There are hundreds of accessories and outfit options.
These are the screenshots from Sonic Forces

- 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.
