After revealing the Sonic Forces theme song is harkening back to the days of Hoobastank, the Sonic team is leaning heavily into its early 2000s tone, again, with the new Enter Infinite trailer. The clip, seen below, is a mixture of AMV and off-kilter Sonic dialogue, but what drives the entire experience is a rocking score over Vogue shots of the upcoming game’s villain.
Unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con, the new villain, Infinite, doesn’t reveal too much of himself apart from his “faster than Sonic” speed, as pointed out by Tails. However, he does get his own theme song by Tyler Smith and Andy Bane from Dangerkids, which is first heard through the trailer’s opening black and white montage of Infinite posing to the camera. The official Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube channel also a released a full cut of the villain’s theme for those who want to get in the angsty mindset.
Unsurprisingly, Eggman and his army are nearby Sonic’s meeting with Infinite, and while it’s unknown if the robotic doctor is responsible for Infinite’s creation, it seems the villains have joined forces to take on Sonic and his crew. While the story appears to follow similar narratives in the franchise, such as Shadow the Hedgehog working with Eggman, the new customizable hero feature will set the game apart, allowing players to choose from a variety of animals with special abilities and give them a signature style to call their own.
Sonic Forces will launch this holiday season for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
