We never saw it coming…
When I heard that Atlus, the developer of the Persona series, was picked up by Sega, I thought it was good news. It was a sign that the smaller company was going places. I just didn’t expect it to get so… weird.
Sonic Forces, the next 3D Sonic game, will feature a selection of DLC costumes for everybody’s favourite blue rodent plucked from Sega’s greatest hits.
Most of them are pretty cool and fit the Sonic Universe aesthetic. You’ve got a Jet Set Radio and Super Monkey Ball outfit. Both look like top tier Sonic OCs.
But then you get the Persona 5 outfit and I’m gonna let the internet speak for itself on that one.

And that’s before they started pointing out the links between Fursona and Persona.
But that’s not what bothered me. It’s his creepy human fingers.

That’s it. I’m out of here.
