When they said “join the resistance” they said it for real. SEGA has revealed earlier today that the highly rumoured third character is indeed anything you can think of, and can be made on their new character editor. That is, you can make our own character to join classic and Modern Sonic in their adventure, with it’s own gameplay style somewhat similar to Modern Sonic, but with a bit more platforming bits.

As revealed by Destructoid, the new character can use a grappling hook to hang on far away platforms, and make use of  “Wispons”, unique gadgets based on wisp powers that help them on their adventure.

The character editor has 7 basic species where we can customize our character on, each of hem with different unique abilities:

  • Wolf — Automatically draws in rings when near them

  • 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

Besides that, you can also customize skin color, upper headgear, middle headgear, lower headgear, gloves, footwear, body and bodysuit.

Besides this info, Sonic the hedgehog’s official YouTube channel has uploaded a new trailer for Sonic Forces, and a gampelay video of the new character’s gameplay. A few screenshots of several different characters made with the editor are also up. Last, but not least, at the gameplay video we can hear a new level theme, along with the name of the apocalyptic city level we have seen in several videos and images: Park Avenue.
