Sonic Mania runs full-speed into EA Origin Access

Sonic Mania - July 30, 2020

As a nostalgia trip, Sonic Mania is impeccably precise. So, naturally, you’ll want to really nail those throwback kicks by, uh, playing it through an unrelated publisher’s digital subscription service. The blue blur and his grossly mutated twin-tailed fox friend are now sprinting through EA’s Origin Access Premiere service, with Two Point Hospital and Endless Legend set to join them in the near future.

The Sonic movie theme song is here, and it's by Wiz Khalifa

Sonic Mania - January 24, 2020

Remember when the very first Sonic the Hedgehog film trailer emerged, and it was rather unexpectedly set to Gangsta's Paradise? We've now moved on to slightly more up-to-date rap, as the official movie song is a collaboration between Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty & Sueco the Child. Sure.

Some great (and not so great) Sonic games now in Humble Bundle

Sonic Mania - November 27, 2019

Fresh from his movie trailer glow-up, Sonic the Hedgehog has dashed over to Humble Bundle. There, a range of adventures are now available for the store's usual low price of your choosing.

Sonic Mania joins the October Humble Monthly bundle

Sonic Mania - September 24, 2019

I thought it was a little strange that only Battletech was revealed as the single early unlock game for October's Humble Monthly bundle. But now, Sonic Mania has also been announced as a second title in the forthcoming bundle.

Have You Played Sonic Mania Plus?

Sonic Mania - June 7, 2019

With Sonic Mania, a modder was put in charge of creating a new Sonic game with official backing. Decades after Sonic the Hedgehog came to PC, the modding scene had shown some incredible creativity, from a version of Sonic 1 where Dr. Robotnik is capturing animals, to another where you go fishing. But one of the more popular mods came in the form of Sonic Megamix, which introduced new characters and moves. Its creator, Christian Whitehead, went on to create the definitive version of Sonic CD, but it’s Sonic Mania that got Sega’s nod, with the Plus add-on reintroducing some old friends.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been delayed into next year

Sonic Mania - May 24, 2019

Paramount's much-maligned Sonic the Hedgehog movie project has been delayed by a little over three months, and will now release on 14th February, 2020.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer reveals his horrible human teeth

Sonic Mania - April 30, 2019

I was unprepared for Sonic the Hedgehog to have human teeth. Seeing as chilli dogs are his favourite food yet he eats them without soaking the bun in milk, I suppose I knew that Sonic wouldn’t have the mouth and teeth of a real hedgehog in our world. I was still not ready for human teeth and weird lips. The first trailer for the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie (or Sonic the Hedgepig, as it’ll likely be named in the UK) has arrived, starring a CGI hedgepig voiced by Ben Schwartz (best known as Jean-Ralphio in Parks and Recreation) alongside human actors including Jim Carrey and James Marsden, and I just wasn’t ready for the teeth.

Unbottling Sonic's secret sauce: the making of Sonic Mania

Sonic Mania - July 20, 2018

Fandom's a funny thing, isn't it? When a new SegaWorld opened up on the slightly tatty seafront at the foot of Brighton's Madeira Drive a good few years back, I was at the peak of my obsession with the company who'd brought blue sky joy to so many. And so I decided to head down to the opening in the Sega T-shirt I'd made myself to show my support, and at least one person appreciated the effort; someone in a slightly tatty Sonic the Hedgehog costume, who gave me a big, bright blue lollipop that had been reserved for winners of the colouring-in competition they were running that day. I was 21. I still have that lollipop, and I'm still proud of what I did.

Sonic Mania s Encore DLC spin-dashes onto stores today

Sonic Mania - July 17, 2018

Sonic Mania brought back Sega’s blue hedgehog in style, fully deserving of applause. Now it’s delivering an encore performance as DLC today. Part of the new Sonic Mania Plus re-release, the Encore DLC lets us existing owners ride again. It features two new playable characters but the real main event is the titular Encore Mode. A remixed, re-lit and harder second trip through the game with some new story and surprises. I’ve played a few stages of it, and have had a ton of fun so far.

Sonic Mania Plus dev diary teases the new Encore mode

Sonic Mania - July 6, 2018

Sonic Mania was a joy – a true return to form for Sega’s spiky blue mascot. It’s due to get even better later this month. Sonic Mania Plus, is a re-release (available as a $5 upgrade for existing owners) adding two new playable characters from the little-known SegaSonic The Hedgehog arcade game, plus some new content. In the first of a series of developer diaries, we get a peek at the new characters in action. Plus an all-too-brief glimpse at Encore mode; a second loop through the game with new lighting, cutscenes and enemy placement.

Sonic Mania Plus now has a release date

Sonic Mania - April 25, 2018

Sega has announced that its upcoming Sonic Mania Plus expansion update thing is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch on July 17th.

Sonic Mania Plus spins out in July

Sonic Mania - April 25, 2018

Last year’s Sonic Mania was a return to the hedgehog’s days of plain ol’ side-scrolling platforming. It was a celebration of nostalgia, though, made by a small team with roots in the fan game scene. So ah, sure, go on, wham in some weird obscure playable characters. With no terrible cutscenes, I’ll be able to pretend Mighty The Armadillo and Ray The Bubsy are brand new anyway. Those two are arriving in Sonic Mania Plus, an expanded version that’ll come to us as DLC – on July 17th, Sega announced today. (more…)

Sonic Mania runs an encore lap with friends this summer

Sonic Mania - March 16, 2018

I’m still in a state of mild disbelief that Sonic Mania even exists. A glorified fan-game by some of the best and brightest creators in a scene that’s often looked down on and frequently sneered at. Backed fully by Sega, it recaptured the spirit of what made that weird blue hedgehog a cultural icon through the ’90s and beyond.
