Sonic Mania Plus now has a release date
Posted by: on eurogamer 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 Manic Plus is essentially a refined, extended reworking of last year's excellent Sonic Mania - what Sega is calling the "definitive version". It takes the already rock-solid retro platforming core of the original and finesses it into a blurry blue sheen.
For starters, it introduces two new, if somewhat obscure, playable characters in the form of Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel (both first seen in the 1993 isometric arcade spin-off, SegaSonic the Hedgehog), along with an intriguing new Encore mode. This, says Sega, gives "a fresh look to familiar zones" with new challenges, layouts, and visual changes.
