Sonic Mania Plus Announced...Two New Characters and More


Sonic Mania players shot the trusty blue hedgehog straight up the charts last summer with what was critically hailed as one of the best Sonic titles in years. Designed by longtime fans of the series, it was a huge hit. Now this summer, Sega is doing more with their iconic mascot.

Sonic Mania Plus was announced for a Summer 2018 release and will feature a few new features to the game, including Encore Mode (which will change a few levels and add some special challenges) two new characters (Ray the Flying Squirrel and Mighty the Armadillo, which appeared in the Japan-only arcade title SegaSonic the Hedgehog first appearing in 1993) and most importantly feature a physical release (supposedly including a reversible cover that allows the game to look like a Genesis title) that comes with an art book.

Those that purchased the digital version of Sonic Mania will be able to purchase this upgrade, though no price has been discussed yet. The physical release is said to retail for $29.99. Look for Sonic Mania Plus in the warm summer months to come! Game will be available for Steam, Xbox, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
