Headcanon: 

 

The purple rock is a bit of time eater that Classic Eggman sent into the past in lieu of himself, to open a gate for the modern version. 

Wait so this game somehow ties into Generations??

As Sonic beats Eggman and the Heavy, he and the purple rock are dragged into a portal. The rest of the ending plays like the bad ending, just without Sonic; because as he's shown in the end, he's travelling through a purple void. No guesses as to where to.

Pfffhahahahhahahahaha oh man. Oh man OH MAN. This won't end well.

Oh, is that it? I was half expecting Infinite to show up, but this admittedly makes more sense. I dunno, I like the sound of how it was handled...aside from "the ending animation is the same just without Sonic." That's a bummer.

Here's my only gripe as far as the story being kind of arbitrary goes. Just like with the new zones thing (the original reveal trailer said "New Zones" as if that would be at least half the game when really it's more like a third at best), it was somewhat advertised or stated that there would be a story that would explain why Sonic is returning to old zones and there would be cutscenes (even just pantomime type stuff) to explain it and there are a few of those but it is a bit unsatisfying and if they had said from the beginning the game had little to no story I would've been fine with that. It was just the whole build up of "Oh, we'll reveal some of the story later" and kind of building it up like this was going to have some elaborate story when it's just your basic "run through the levels because they're there" kind of thing. 

 

Yeah, agreed. I guess to be fair it's kind of hard to "explain" that sort of thing without dialogue, and I'm not hugely disappointed or anything, but yeah...

Clearly there should be a few paragraphs of text at the end of Knuckles' campaign where he contemplates everything that's happened. :V

Wait... so that's it?? The game ends on a cliffhanger? That's extremely odd... I mean, I get it if it's supposed to be a lead in to Forces but that seems like a downer to end a Sonic game on, especially a stand alone game. They could still tease Sonic Forces without having it end with Tails and Knuckles losing their friend (at least for the time being)

Is there anything in the extras menu yet?

No. I imagine that you have to beat the entire game in under two minutes if Sonic CD's tough requirements for unlocking the extra content is any indication.

I feel like theres gonna be an extra zone or something if all 3 characters beat the game. Theres no way it just ends like that

That's what I'm saying... maybe an extra zone that takes place in the purple void? That seems like an odd ending... I've never seen a game that ends on a somewhat sad note like that.

They did it.

The absolute madmen.

Sonic Forces is a sequel to Sonic Mania. 

Sonic Forces is a sequel to Sonic Mania. 

SONIC FORCES IS A SEQUEL TO SONIC MANIA

 

It's certainly an interesting idea... just not sure what it all means... Infinite himself isn't in the game at all but I suppose his name implies that he can exist in all time periods at once. Maybe he's the one pulling the strings here and is recruiting Robotnik to join his plan to take over the world (along with the other villains) and Sonic just happens to get stuck in the crossfire? I don't know but this generates more questions than answers... I just feel bad for Tails and Knuckles

Knuckles' cutscenes so far are basically the same, just slightly different locations.

Well and now he's playing Gachimuchi. There you go.

EDIT: For those who don't know what THAT is, gay Japanese porn that's also a meme.

Classic Eggman probably will appear in Forces. Just to tie this game with Mania. Probably at the end. 

I can see it happening. You start the game as Modern Sonic, and at the end of the first stage a giant special stage ring appears with the background being the purple void from the ending, and Classic Sonic jumps out of it. 

It's fucking happening everyone.

WE'RE IN A TRAIN WITH NO BRAKES BOYS. COLLISION COURSE.
