I kinda feel like at the beginning of forces production they wanted to go back to what made generations as good as it was, so they decided to add classic sonic back but with no real reason. Then mania was announced and then they decided to make mania link up with forces to explain why he was there from a story standpoint because to us players, they only added classic sonic because he was praised in generations for his gameplay. Even if it wasnt as good as it was in the classic days, it was miles better than sonic 4, so they probably thought "well they liked him before so why not put him back in?"

Now that mania is out and we all played and loved it, a lot of us just want a pure 3D sonic game (a good majority of us even wanted it even before forces was announced) since we all got that sweet 2D gameplay some of us have been waiting decades for. I mean come on, the last fully 3D sonic game was sonic next gen and that was 11 years ago.

In terms of the core 3D gameplay, they already shown that their too scared to make a full game with just the boost formula, so they have 3 options at this point imo:

1) Make a full game based off the boost formula (I know I JUST said that they would be too scared but if given enough feedback it could be a possibility. They could add wisp's and or another playstyle/gimick if they need to, but according to a lot of people the boost gameplay on its own is really fun. Enough to make a whole game based around it. I would be down for it if they could actually pull it off.)

2) Go back to the adventure formula (go back to hub worlds, power-ups, multiple characters, ect. Of course this leads to the infamous "sonic adventure 3" that everyone wants but no one can really agree what should be in the game. With SA2 being one of my all time favorites of course I would want to see this style back, although I'm always up for change as its, of course, not my game series and sega and sonic team can do whatever they want with sonic.)

3) Invent an all new gameplay style for sonic (I kinda doubt sega and sonic team would do this, but who knows what they might do in the future?)

Anyway I do agree that forces is kinda stuck with this bad timing because of mania (not that it doesnt make me want forces or anything) but either way I still cant wait for forces to come out given all the gameplay styles, custom hero, deeper story, ect.

Here's what the official Tumblr post about it says, with the very relevant parts bolded:
Spoiler:
Shadow arrives with 3 playable levels! Episode Shadow is a free Add-on for Sonic Forces.

#sonic forces #episode shadow #shadow the hedgehog #Shadow is playable for the first time in quite some while
#once you finish his side story #he can go through modern Sonic's stages in the game
#but what secrets does Infinite hold? #and why is Shadow on Eggman's side? #you'll have to wait and see #armed ballistic item not required

Yeah, I forgot to say that in the post. (And doing the "evil smiley face" emote was an embarrassing and childish mistake now that I think about it and since it was "snipped" it in the quote, why did I do that?)
