Gotta Go Fast- Sonic Mania Releases August 15
The 2D revival of the old Sonic games, Sonic Mania, now has a release date. Sonic Mania is developed by Christian Whitehead (former fan game developer that ended up helping out with PC and mobile ports of Sonic CD), Headcannon and PagodaWest Games. Taking cues of the first three Sonic platformers, the game is a celebration of the era featuring remixed levels from the old titles while adding new ones. Sonic, Tails and Knuckles are all playable characters.
To celebrate the release date, there is a new trailer featuring another new song by Hyper Potions, the folks that did the awesome song for the initial reveal, and a masterful animation work led by Tyson Hesse. Check it out:
Sega is hedging on two Sonic games this year to bring the blue blur back out of the long streak of mediocre games currently, the other being Sonic Team’s game Sonic Forces. Will it pay off or will the Sonic Cycle continue?
Sonic Mania will be out on the PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch. The PC price on Steam is only RM85 (with a current pre-order discount of 10% making it only RM76).
