A day before the game’s release, SEGA has unveiled the English version of their launch trailer for Sonic Forces — Sonic the Hedgehog’s latest 3D installment.

The spliced together sizzle reel was posted this morning to the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter and YouTube accounts, it showcases both story cutscenes as well as gameplay, including stages that have yet to be shown off officially. Narrated by Knuckles the Echidna — the defacto “leader” of the game’s resistance force — he tells of the situation laid out for the player in Forces, with Eggman taking over 99% of the world.
In addition, a short snippet of Sonic Forces’ additional story content — Episode Shadow — was also shown at the end of the trailer. While it is understood that this plot line explaining Shadow the Hedgehog’s involvement in the story is expected to serve as a prequel, SEGA has so far been unclear if this will be accessible from the start of the game or only after completion of the main game.
