The Sonic the Hedgehog hype train is showing no signs of slowing down since the release and positive critical reception of the retro-inspired Sonic Mania. Sonic Team’s Sonic Forces now has a release date, and the game comes with a ton of cool preorder bonuses, including skins for the player avatar that celebrate multiple other SEGA franchises!

Sonic Forces is set to launch in western territories on November 7th on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Bonus Edition of the game can be preordered as well. Included in-game items will allow players to dress the custom avatar Hero Character based on the animal you choose. With these free add-ons, the Hero can represent NiGHTS, Super Monkey Ball, Puyo Puyo, Jet Set Radio, and even Persona 5.

Skins for the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Grip, as well as PS4 and Xbox One controllers, were also announced, and they feature the game’s logo and artwork covering the controller. The box art looks fairly fiery itself, which I have to say is quite fitting with the marketing we have gotten for the game so far.

With preorders soon going live, will you be placing one for Sonic’s newest adventure? And are you excited for Sonic Forces to release in just little over two months? Let us know if you are boarding the hype train in the comments below!

Our Verdict

Eric Zavinski
Hey all! I've been a gamer since I was three. I'm one of those people with gaming so ingrained in them that watching my father play Super Mario 64 is actually my first memory I can recall. I love writing too! I'm writing an original fantasy series that takes place in another universe; it may take some inspiration from some of my favorite franchises. I've been a journalist for a few years, have worked on local and national teams, and have garnered experience assigning stories, editing, writing, interviewing, hosting a television series, running a YouTube channel, and doing other stuff that's more fun to mention in conversation. Bios can drag on. Anyway, I'm super stoked to be a part of the Gamnesia team! Thanks for having me!
