With both Sonic Mania
and Sonic Forces
on the way this year, SEGA has been generously releasing samples of both games' soundtracks for our listening pleasure. Last week, they kicked this off for Sonic Mania
with "Lights, Camera, Action!
" from the first act of the game's Studiopolis Zone. On the Sonic Forces
front, we've already heard a couple of tracks, namely the game's main theme
as well as a track for the game's custom character
. Now we've got another track from each game.
Starting with Sonic Mania
, this track composed by Tee Lopes, called "Hi Spec Robo Go!", isn't from any one particular stage; instead it plays during encounters with the Hard-boiled Heavies. Personally, this one sounds like it has taken at least a little inspiration from another SEGA game with fantastic music, Jet Set Radio
For Sonic Forces
, we have the theme for new character Infinite — handily called "Infinite" — that features in the reveal trailer for the character that can also be seen below. On the track, alongside series veterans Tomoya Ohtani and Jun Senoue, are Tyler Smyth and Andy Bane, both of the band Dangerkids.
is set to launch on August 15th, with Sonic Forces
currently scheduled to release later in the year. Hopefully SEGA continues to provide us with some more soundtrack samples from both to tide us over until they release.
