Sonic Forces’ E3 trailer introduces some old foes, and a new one

Good guys aren’t the only ones teaming up

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Sonic Forces’ E3 trailer brings back some familiar faces — the bad guys Sonic has fought over the past two decades, and a new, rather ominous looking foe his comrades must deal with.

Of course, Dr. Eggman and his giant contraptions must be battled and taken down. His henchmen include (in order of appearance) Shadow the Hedgehog, Metal Sonic, Zavok and Chaos.

That last, Matrix-y looking foe is all new Infinite. Who knows what he does, but with Dr. Eggman in charge of 99 percent of the world in the setup to Sonic Forces, sounds like he’s been sent to consolidate his hold on the last 1 percent.

Sonic Forces will allow users to create their own custom runner, choosing from seven species and dozens of color and costuming options. Each species has a special ability. (No word if one of the species is the hedgeheg.)

Sonic Forces is out this holiday season on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC and Xbox One.
