  • Idol Shadow Coming to Sonic Forces and Sonic Dash Next Month

    Isekai Ohgiri comes to Sonic mobile games!

    Shadow fans will be treated to some royal pop-star fun next month, as SEGA HARDlight announced a new character to both Sonic Forces Mobile and Sonic Dash - Idol Shadow!

    Dubbed "the ultimate showstopper" on the studio's social media channel, Idol Shadow will bring "his fearless energy and unstoppable style" to both mobile games. No idea what the special abilities or stats for this character will be just yet, but we imagine that will come in time.

    What's interesting about this announcement is that this is not a new design for Shadow - the character was re-imagined in the Idol style last January as part of SEGA Japan's "Isekai Ohgiri" fantasy art series. Of course, the new alt character will be appearing as part of SEGA's broader 'Fearless: Year of Shadow' marketing campaign that is running through 2024, too.

    Looking forward to playing as the stylish boy in July's Forces and Dash update? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Gives me Slipknot vibes. (That's a Emo Boy band, if anyone isn't intreated. I only know about it through my 1 Emo Friend. Eww)

    Bro's drippy as heck. He looks like Scourge but it's Shadow with his color scheme instead of Scourge's

    New Shadow skins in the Speed Battle game are always cool, though I'm still waiting for the day they release Captain Shadow for this game like they did for Sonic Dash.

    Once again, HARDlight did a very good job since I find their version even better than the original seen on Sonic Channel and Sonic Speed Simulator!!...

    I can't see his sword but I guess it will appear in a Special Attack!!...

    By the way, Pyromancer Blaze is nowhere to be seen since the leak...

    Emo...? Boy band??? :stressin: Noooooooooo~~~~ As a metalhead, this stabs me in the heart a little bit, haha! Emo is more like Panic at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, that sort of soft rock stuff. Slipknot is heavy metal.🤘

    Anyway, it's nice that HARDlight are using other Sonic Channel reference material to come up with new alt characters. Looking forward to seeing the stats on this one.

    mhh, well, that's what I get for judging by it's cover (And the people who listen to it).

    I listen to heavy metal sometime, so actually, I apologize, AND who knows, I might give it another shot! (You know, if my Emo friend doesn't find out)

    I thought this Shadow was based on the art of him with Infinite and it kinda is, but still has differences.

    The art version does look a little better in my opinion. I like the wings and scabbard that don't seem to be in the Idol Shadow model. His chest hair poking out in the art is a neat touch too. But they also improved his gloves and gave him shades which were good additions.

    What's interesting is that the Sonic Speed Simulator Roblox game also released the same skin for Idol Shadow recently. However, instead of being called "Idol," he's called Rockstar Shadow there. I wonder why they changed his name. Was it a localization thing?

    Another day, another Idol Shadow variant being added to a game without Idol Infinite to accompany him. It was Speed Simulator first, now these. So disheartening. I need justice for the jackal. Don't forget the source material, people!

    SPEED BATTLE is under maintenance but it is written that "Chroma" will be added to the game : Do you know what it is?!...

    I read a few weeks ago that characters will have a second set of colours soon, do you think it could be what they call "Chroma"?!...

    Or maybe it was just a rumour...
