Sonic Forces Customized Characters Announced

By Dave Bricker, 2 months ago
Sonic Forces 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 customized characters:


Players can choose from seven basic animal types:

  • 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.
Sonic Forces is expected to release on Playstation 4 during the 2017 holiday season.
