Sonic Forces first Classic Sonic gameplay, screenshots

A look at the upcoming Sonic game's second gameplay style.

Sonic Forces

Sega has released a new, two-minute gameplay video of Sonic Forces showcasing Classic Sonic gameplay in the Green Hill Zone.

The footage was originally teased during a Nintendo Direct presentation earlier this month.

The upcoming Sonic game will feature three playable characters: Modern Sonic, Classic Sonic, and a third, unrevealed character.

Sonic Forces will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC this holiday. (Sega’s press release actually says it will be available for “Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC & Knuckles.” They’re goofballs.)

Watch the footage below. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.
