Shun Nakamura

Game Informer spoke with Sonic Forces producer Shun Nakamura at the Tokyo Game Show last month. Nakamura talked about the big change of not regaining rings similiar to past titles, how long the game will be and why it’s priced at $40, and the darker tone.

You can read up on Nakamura’s responses about these topics below. For the full interview, head on over here.

For the first time, Sonic fans will be able to create their own original character in Sonic Forces. Producer Shun Nakamura spoke about the feature in an interview with Polygon.

Nakamura indicated that customization won’t be “as in depth as Fallout or some of those other extremely complex creation mechanics.”

Nakamura explained:

Recently, Famitsu spoke with Sonic series producer Takashi Iizuka and Sonic Forces producer Shun Nakamura. The two had much to say about the brand new custom character aspect and more.

First, Famitsu asked about the details on why character customization was added in Sonic Forces. Iizuka said that for many years in which he had been working on Sonic games, he received a ton of requests from fans to have their own original characters appear. While he has never been able to put in those characters exactly as they are, he still wanted to make those dreams come true, so SEGA decided to add a custom character that will fight together with Sonic.

A new Sonic Forces interview has gone up on Nintendo UK’s website. Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka and producer Shun Nakamura participated in the discussion.

We have some highlights from the interview below. Iizuka and Nakamura spoke about how Sonic Forces isn’t a sequel to Sonic Generations, the custom character system, appealing to all types of players with this game and Mania, and fans comparing New Donk City from Super Mario Odyssey to Sonic Adventure.

Chao won’t be present in Sonic Forces. Producer Shun Nakamura and Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka, speaking with IGN, confirmed that they won’t be featured with the site.

Chao were most prominent in the Sonic Adventure games. These creatures, which were essentially digital pets in the games, let players raise their stats, increase levels, take on races, and more.

On his personal Twitter page, SEGA’s Shun Nakamura announced that he is the producer of Sonic Forces. Let’s talk about his previous roles at the company.

Most will likely attach Nakamura to the very disappointing Sonic the Hedgehog title from 2006, as he was the game’s director. He’s done much more than that, however. Nakamura was also the director of Samba de Amigo, Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure, and Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg. Nakamura was involved with a number of previous Sonic games as well.
