Sonic Forces screenshot of the character creator

If you think that Sonic fan-fiction and the artwork that surrounds it is already ridiculous, you're going to be in for quite a treat with Sonic Forces. According to the developers, in Sonic Forces players will not only be able to create, dress, and equip their very own character, but also play through the game with them as well!

For those of you wondering what this might look like in action, wonder no more as the developers have also released a trailer showcasing one of their new creations: a red fox that sports a giant flamethrower and a grappling hook. Have a look:

While its almost guaranteed this system will produce some horrendous abominations, I can't help but see this as an incredibly positive step forward. People that like creating their own characters get a whole bunch of tools to do just that, while everyone else gets to customize their playstyles and abilities which is always a great thing. I mean, who wouldn't want to give Sonic a giant flamethrower and make terrible egg-boiling puns all day?

If you're more interested in what exactly Sonic Forces plays like, you'll find the very first gameplay trailer by heading over here. Its not very long and it doesn't showcase everything Sonic Forces has to offer, but it should give you a good idea of what to expect. Enjoy!
