Sega has released a new set of screenshots from Sonic Forces showcasing the customizable Hero Character utilizing the newly revealed Drill Wispon to destroy enemies and speed through the “Chemical Plant” stage.
Wispons are an evolution of the Color Powers from Sonic Colors, and double as both offensive abilities and as a way to platform through levels quickly. In Sonic Forces, players can equip their Hero Characcter with one of a variety of Wispons, including the Drill Wispon, which allows players to drill dash on the ground to quickly traverse stages and climb walls. The Drill Wispon can also be used to attack enemies by charging and launching a drill punch.
