IGN: Sonic Forces – Letter Rankings Return, Game Not As Dark As It Seems, Tails Also NPC

by March 18, 2017

While we haven’t gotten a lot of gameplay revealed from Sonic Forces, some gaming media sites have gotten loads more behind the scenes. One of those is IGN, and they have offered their impressions on the game. There, we learn that we can “achieve higher letter rankings on each level”, informing us that the letter rankings will return in Sonic Forces. Tails was also confirmed as another NPC that will be on the radio providing updates on the situation to Sonic.

However, one question that has come from Sonic Forces has been the overall tone of the game. What we’ve seen of the game has been a very dark, grim vibe, a stark contrast to the last few main series Sonic games. But thanks to IGN, we can confirm to you that all is not what it seems. According to IGN, what we see from the trailer and from this level is that it’s one of “more aesthetically grim parts of the game”, suggesting this is not the only point of the game where things reach this point, but all of the game won’t be like this. IGN says that if you’re worried about this Sonic game being a dark, apocolyptic Sonic game, you “likely won’t have to”. In fact, IGN says this “became clear to them” with Tails “and Amy” being NPCs on the radio, suggesting that what they’re saying isn’t that serious.

That’s not all that IGN talks about, so feel free to check out their preview of the game to learn more. Either way, if you’ve been wondering about the game’s tone, there you go.
