'Sonic Mania Plus' (ALL) Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on April 25, 2018 @ 4:03 p.m. PDT

Sonic Mania brings fans back into the 2D world of platform games with nostalgic pixel-style art and core classic gameplay by reimagining iconic Zones and Acts from Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD and Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles.

You’re not dreaming. Since the 90’s, Sonic has advanced from the 2D world into 3D, and has crossed multiple platforms along the way. But what would have happened if Sonic had continued his 2D glory after Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles? The world is about to find out.

Before you get too lost in nostalgia of the 1990s, the game is also adding completely new Zones with all-new Acts and bosses into the mix.

Sonic Mania is a brand new Sonic the hedgehog title that takes the classic Sonic experience and adds new elements and exciting surprises. Players will be able to choose between playing Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles to defeat bosses and enemies. Harness Sonic’s new Drop Dash, Tails’ flight, and Knuckles’ climbing abilities to overcome evil Dr. Eggman and his henchmen. Discover a myriad of never-before-seen hidden paths and secrets!


Sonic Mania Plus will release on July 17, 2018 in North America and European markets.

Sonic Mania Plus introduces two new playable characters from past Sonic games, Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel and an Encore mode that will provide a fresh look to familiar zones with new challenges and layouts for new and veteran players alike. Competition and Time Attack modes will receive an update allowing four player competitions, and ghost challenges for time trials.

This content packaged in an all-new physical edition which will come with a 32-page collector’s artbook, a reversible SEGA Genesis cover, and holographic packaging.

For all those who purchased the original digital version of Sonic Mania on consoles and PC, an Encore DLC pack will be available for sale at $4.99 via Steam and first party stores on July 17, 2018 to upgrade to Sonic Mania Plus.

This all-new experience celebrates the best of Classic Sonic and features stunning 60 FPS gameplay and pixel-perfect physics.

Sonic Mania is currently available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC, with the Sonic Mania Plus on July 17, 2018 for $29.99 USD.
