New Sonic Mania Trailer: Release Date Announced!

With classic characteristics from the previous games along with new features, Sonic Mania is shaping up to be the Sonic game many of us have wanted for a long time.

Sega's Sonic Mania is due out later this year- we know it's due by the end of the Summer, and apparently it's out in August according to a rumor we reported on yesterday. It is a throwback to classic Sonic, but with 60 FPS gameplay and improved physics.

Although a leak last week gave an early look at the release date, a new trailer for the game has been released today that confirms the game's new release date of August 15th. People can play alone as Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. Sonic, Tails and Knuckles will all be playable in the game, and each one of them comes with their own unique abilities. If you're already down with what has been shown, you can now pre-order the game.


If it wasn't patently obvious already that Sonic Mania is a love-letter (really more of a "please-take-me-back" letter) to fans of the blue-blur, this trailer hammered the point home. I love the stencil art style and the animation reminds me a lot of Sonic CD (my favorite Sonic game). To celebrate the announcement, we're treated to a brand-new trailer.

However, Sonic Mania marks a return to its former Genesis glory days.
