Players can also equip their customized character with a unique gadget, known as a Wispon. Wispons are an evolution of powers from Sonic Colors (which was released for the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS). These powers can be used to advance through a level quickly and as well as add offensive capabilities. There are hundreds of accessories and outfit options.



These are the screenshots from Sonic Forces customized characters:



Players can choose from seven basic animal types:

  • Rabbit - Has longer invincible time after receiving damage
  • Cat - Keeps one ring after being hit
  • Dog - Restarts with five rings after the player dies
  • Bear – Blows away enemies with a homing attack
  • Bird - Flies high with double jump abilities
  • Hedgehog - Collects rings when getting damaged.
Sonic Forces is expected to release on Xbox One during the 2017 holiday season.
