After watching the trailer a thought came to mind... I really REALLY hope they weren't lazy and put the box art OC in all of the cutscenes. The cutscenes better have your custom character showing and not pre-recorded with only one design.
Oh that would suck if the cutscenes were prerendered... I hate it when games let you choose outfits but during the cutscenes it goes to your "default" outfit.

They already stated that your OC will appear in cutscenes, The one in the Trailers is most likely just a placeholder similar to what was done for the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games.

Anywho a few new tidbits have came out of TGS.
- The Tag Team stages will only feature your OC and Modern Sonic, You can't team up with Classic Sonic.
- More DLC is confirmed but they didn't go into any further details.
- They confirmed that there is a connection between Forces and Mania.
- During the Sonic Forces concert a remix of White Jungle theme from Adventure 2 was played, leading many to speculate that the stage is returning in Forces.

If I had to hazard a guess I'd assume the White Jungle stage would appear in episode Shadow. Or just as a stage theme. After all he had a remix of Supporting Me playing in that trailer.

And yeah, it will take your custom character into account for the cutscenes. They're just using the default design for consistency's sake. This is a common practice.

Finally, while I wouldn't call myself hyped for Forces, I would say I'm looking forward to it slightly more than I was initially after the most recent Story trailer. Sounds like its been handled well. Still not getting my hopes up too much though.

Oh that's good. I know some games like Resident Evil 4(PS2 version) wouldn't show your custom outfit on cutscenes because they were prerecorded so this is good to know.

Tag Team, I'm cool with. More DLC? Please please be more playable characters! Let there be a Tails DLC! Is there any footage of this white jungle remix? I could see it returning or maybe them just reusing the music like Sonic Adventure reused 3D Blast music.


Here's a behind the scenes of the orchestrated theme.

Here's new gameplay! Finally a new stage, not just variations of what's already there.

So Casino Night but in a forest? Eeeeh. I'd have preferred they just re-made Casino Night outright or made a new forest themed stage. Can't say I'm a fan of the music either. Hopefully the modern version of the stage is a bit more interesting.

The music is alright. I was reading about it before I even heard it and it's not nearly as bad as people have said. Like it's not Sonic 4 bad or even close. It's just there. As for the actual stage, I feel a Casino Night remake would be pretty boring as we already have Green Hill. I like the twist of being both and it actually having a backstory. It was a forest that Eggman turned into a casino because he's the ruler and can do what he wants now which is something he actually WOULD do, turning nature into his dream city. lol

IGN has an extended, albeit poorly played, playthrough. In this one Tails is talking to Classic Sonic and by the end we can conclude that in this stage Classic Sonic is looking for Modern Sonic.

A new venture. La la. La la.
I'm with Ludi here. I'm not sold at all, and honestly, the more they show this game off the worst it looks to me. I'm especially not a fan of how chatty the characters are in stages. I just hope there's a "Charmy_Shutup" code in the ini files.

I don't know. The melody isn't that interesting to me and they've kinda gone too heavy on the Mega Drive sound. It also loops too quickly as well.

As for the stage, this just feels like a bit of a cop-out. I'm all for a forest stage Eggman has turned into a neon city, but why not something more original rather than ripping gimmicks straight from Casino Night? It just leaves me feeling like we've yet to see a truly new stage from this game. Overall this is just reinforcing the feeling that the game would have been better without Classic Sonic being in it.

Okay, I see what you're saying now. Yeah it really is just Casino Night in a different wrapper. Doesn't bother me though, but yeah.

As for the tune, I wouldn't put it up there with the classic games or even Mania but I really don't find it bad like Sonic 4 at all.

well dang seems like i'm still hype for it and whatnot but no one else is.. that's upsetting. personally i quite like the casino forest zone. reminds me of a good mix of frog forest/green forest/white jungle zone and casino night zone. i mean, i'm liking it. i'm pretty sure i won't be able to play this game for a while after it comes out since i do not have any of the systems for it, but..i'm still excited as all heck for it.

Hey I'm pretty hyped for it! I don't expect a masterpiece but if it's as enjoyable as Colors or Generations I'll thoroughly enjoy it!

I was becoming slightly more optimistic about things but if we're mostly getting stages like this then I'm going to be a bit disappointed. They really need to start showcasing some of the modern stages rather than the classic ones. We're set for classic gameplay after Mania.
