Famitsu Interview With Iizuka Posted & Translated

by October 5, 2017

Famitsu had quite a bit of new Sonic Forces news in their latest issue. Sonic United has translated the information:

Tails

A fox with two tails and Sonic’s friend who’s currently lost contact with him!

Knuckles

An echidna who’s also Sonic’s rival/friend. Sonic has gone missing and Knuckles (Captain of the Resistance Army) is holding back Eggman’s invasion.

Story

Sonic’s disappearance was shocking news to everyone. Sonic’s friends, who had escaped from Eggman’s invasion, have formed the resistance army. The resistance has bases in several areas. Your Avatar visits the Resistance’s Secret Base and it is then that the story begins…

The secret base was created so they could stay hidden from Eggman. Silver and Espio are seen as hero figures. Amy is responsible for communication work.

We also got a brief interview with Iizuka, which contains new information on Infinite:

Q: What is the nature of this extremely powerful villain Infinite?

A: Iizuka: He was not always evil, but unlike Chaos, Infinite was not born by mutation, he’s animal character like Sonic’s team. The reason why he becomes powerful and why he becomes evil… you’ll get your answer in Shadow’s free DLC.

Q: What is the purpose of Eggman’s army vs. Sonic’s team?

A: Iizuka: Dr. Eggman controls his army corps and Infinite shows off his power. The answer for why Eggman has been able to dominate the world lies within Infinites abilities.

Q: Many bosses from previous generations are returning. The reason for it is?

A: Nakamura: I want you (the player) to have thoughts like “Why!?” while you’re playing. For example: “Why has Shadow become an enemy?” and “Why does Chaos exist again?” You will get the answer while playing the game.
