Many fans of the blue blur have been highly anticipating the release of Sonic's next 3D outing. In announcement videos Sega has played it coy on the official release date, with only the time-stamp of 2017 currently given. Now video game retailer EB Games may have let the date slip by revealing on its Australian website that Sonic Forces will be releasing for Nintendo Switch on 7th November. 

As you can see below the website shows the full release date along with a glimpse of what the Switch box art will look like. The same pages for other platforms also give the same date. Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations were all launched around the November mark, so this date does seem like a strong bet.

Sonic Forces sees Sonic team-up with his classic persona in an attempt to stop Doctor Eggman and the new mysterious villain Infinite. Besides the two Sonic characters Tails, Knuckles and Metal Sonic are all due to appear along with the ability to create your own custom character for the very first time. 

Would you pick up Sonic Forces in early November?
