SEGA has two Sonic titles coming up, Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces. The latter will be adding a new feature not seen in previous Sonic titles, character customization.
In the character customization, you’ll start with the basic building blocks of cat, dog, bear, bird, hedgehog, rabbit, and wolf. Each animal has a minor unique ability, like a double-jump or automatically attracting in nearby rings. Once you have that, you can apply the colour of your choice, accessories like hats, gloves, shoes and in the case of the trailer, spectacles.
Once you have your character setup, you can give them a cool gadget called Wispons. SEGA describe these as “an evolution of the Color Powers from Sonic Colors.”

Sonic Forces launches for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.
