Sega recently held a livestream for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise where they talked up recent games and developments for the blue hedgehog.
Aaron Webber, the social media coordinator for Sega of America and the Sonic franchise, revealed that Super Sonic wasn’t originally planned to be in Sonic Forces.
Coming from this, he explained that due to his appearance not being planned from the get-go, his later inclusion is why the company added him as post-launch downloadable content. Furthermore, since the game doesn’t have the Chaos Emeralds as a plot device, it wouldn’t make sense to include Super Sonic.
Webber also noted that while the team worked hard on the title, it was fair for the community to have something of an misunderstanding for the DLC.
Sonic Forces is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
