Rumor: Sonic Forces Day One Edition to feature avatar costumes from Jet Set Radio, NiGHTS, more

Posted on July 31, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Switch

A pair of interesting retailer listings have been spotted that may point to a possible “Day One Edition” for Sonic Forces.

Amazon Spain and XtraLife both list the release, though there’s an important caveat here. Neither store has the Sonic Forces Day One Edition for Switch – only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, we did come across a listing from Game Mania in the Netherlands that does list it for Nintendo’s console.

As for what’s included, you’ll receive costume DLC for the custom avatar. Jet Set Radio, NiGHTS into Dreams, Super Monkey Ball, and Puyo Puyo Tetris will be represented. Two other franchises will be featured as well. Four postcards with concept art from the game are also included.

At this point, it’s probably safe to say that the Sonic Forces Day One Edition is happening. We just don’t know if SEGA will be offering it on Switch. If not, that would be a bit odd, as even Sonic Lost World on Wii U had a Deadly Six Edition at launch.

Finally, retailers are beginning to show what appears to be the final boxart for Sonic Forces. We’ve attached it above.

    It’s a shame Sega wasn’t smart enough to use the original Hedgehog Engine.

    • TruExtent

      I thought this was just an updated version of the same engine… Am I wrong?

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      Do you realize it’s being made using the Hedgehog Engine 2, right?

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Hoping for more customizable options of they’re planning on DLC, but that Boxart looks solid. And SEGA actually acknowledging franchises they otherwise wanna forget, cool yes please.

    NiGHTS??? NiGHTS??????!!!!!!??? That is it, I am sold. When you mention NiGHTS, now you know your are dealing with a sega fan. Bring over Ulala from space channel while your at it 😉

    No Day One on Switch? Guess this is evidence enough that SEGA abandoned the console. Clearly.

    I like all the games that would be represented with avatar costumes, so looks like I really might just pre-order this anyway. It’d be even better if one of the two other franchises included were like a Skies of Arcadia costume; Vyse’s outfit would be cool for an avatar.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      I want them to make a new Skies of Arcadia already. Valkyria Chronicles just isn’t enough….

    I need this game soo bad!

  • Cool!

  • Costumes from those games are all tempting. Now I wish Sega would do another crossover game, since we know they won’t be doing anything with those titles.
