It could be a rather good year for Sonic fans that happen to own a Switch - Sonic Mania is due in the Summer, and then Sonic Forces will also come to the system in the Holiday season. Though the Wii and Wii U had exclusive Sonic games of varying quality, it's great to see the mainline multi-platform titles coming to Nintendo hardware.

There was a little Sonic segment in today's Direct, and one section that caught our eye was a glimpse of the 2D Sonic gameplay in Forces. This game will evidently riff on a similar idea to Sonic Generations, while a new character was also teased. Check it out below or skip to 3:35 if the video doesn't do so automatically.

Sonic Mania, of course, looks rather tasty too.

Are you an optimistic Sonic fan right now?
