In addition, HARDlight will be giving away 25 special Excalibur Sonic cards for free within Speed Battle. The cards can be collected between 25 August to 29 August, and again on 30 August to 2 September.
SEGA HARDlight has a history of adding characters and features long considered to be atypical in Sonic Forces: Speed Battle. This past summer, IDW duo Tangle the Lemur and Whisper the Wolf made their first-ever video game appearance in Speed Battle, and Knuckles’ “cowboy hat” from the 1996 film made its comeback.
