Comics have long been a part of Sonic the Hedgehog's history, but Sega has mostly kept the two universes separate, over the years. That seems to be changing, however, as Tangle and Whisper are coming to Sonic Forces Mobile! The two characters originally appeared in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic from IDW Publishing before getting a limited series spin-off. It's a major change for the brand, and it could open up the possibility of more original comic characters coming to games in the future. Naturally, Sonic fans are excited, and many are talking about whether or not this could lead to appearances in console games, as well. Time will tell if there ends up being more connective tissue between the two, but it's definitely exciting news for Sonic fans, regardless!

Maybe it will lead to more!
Sonic Forces Speed Battle is a popular mobile game, and one that doesn't feature any voice acting
But. I wonder. If reaction to playable Tangle and Whisper are good, could we some day see them in a bigger game...?
Would be interesting to see the casting choices there— Friend Cluster (@WynneCluster) June 28, 2020
Console game next please, Sega?

Pretty wild, to be honest.
I never thought there'd be a game where you can see Modern Sonic, Classic Sonic, Movie Sonic, and Tangle and Whisper all in the same place.— BlueStreak (@streak_of_blue) June 28, 2020
Gaming is keeping us all going, right now.

So far, the only good things in 2020 for me are all Game related.— John Guerra (@Scourgey) June 29, 2020
You can't please everyone.
So Tangle and Whisper from IDW Sonic will be showing up in Sonic Forces: Speed Battle. First time any comic exclusive sonic character has appeared in an official Sonic game, neat... I really don't play Speed Battle anymore. Wish they were in Sonic Dash instead.— MeltingMan234 (@MeltingMan234) June 28, 2020
