November has begun, although you can probably already feel the temperature beginning to drop outside. Regardless, you’ll need to endure the cold to join the resistance that’s brewing.
NINTENDO ESHOP UPDATE – 11/2/2017
Sonic Forces has been the subject of many news stories this year, and the game will finally launch soon. A sequel to Generations mechanically, Modern and Classic Sonic return, both continuing their respective gameplay styles; Modern Sonic regains his Boost technique, whereas Classic Sonic (fittingly) gained the Drop Dash from the excellent Sonic Mania. A newcomer to the fold, the Custom Hero, is your avatar within Forces’ world, allowing you to customize his or her arsenal and clothing. Dr. Eggman and his enigmatic creation Infinite have conquered 99 percent of the globe, and they’ve enlisted four familiar enforcers to ensure they claim that final percent. Sonic Forces will launch on November 7 for all consoles, though it should be mentioned that the Switch version will run at 30FPS as opposed to the other platforms’ 60FPS. Personally, I’m still cautiously optimistic over the game, but… eh, I’ve already expressed my concerns here. Let’s hope for a happy Sonic Two-sday.
