Emerald City, also known as Seattle Zone, is an area that appears in Sonic Forces: Speed Battle. It was added to promote the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 film.


Emerald City is a urban region based on Seattle from the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 film. The area is a large and modern seaport city set during nighttime in the middle of rainy weather, the sky being overcast by dark blue and purple clouds. In the horizon, one can spot various tall buildings and skyscrapers in dark-colors and with orange-glowing windows in them. Among these buildings are also Seattle's famous Space Needle.

The racetrack itself is a four-lane asphalt road with yellow lane markings on its edges and in the middle and a pair of broken white lines on it, dividing the lanes further. Sometimes though, the racetracks transitions into pale red pedestrian streets.

Next to the racing track are various cars, such as taxis, police cars with flashing sirens, passenger cars and trucks, potted plants, dumpsters, bus stops, city trees with green crowns, streetlamps, traffic lights with flashing lights, simple street signs, benches, and traffic redirecting equipment, such as traffic cones and barriers. Looming over the racetrack on the sides are also apartment buildings, shops with overhangs, and towers in various dull colors and with orange light shining out of their windows. Along the racetrack, one can also spot sideroads, which are closed off from the racetrack, that are cloaked in fog. Hanging over the racetracks are also lampposts on strings. When moving along the pedestrian streets, the player may pass through a market place marked with a large red neon sign saying "EMERALD MARKET CENTER". These kind of areas in particular are open spaces with pale red sett paving and feature outdoor furniture, like chairs, tables and parasols, food trucks, more city trees, and handlebars.
