  • Sonic Mania's opening animation is G-rated, but it's aimed at the hearts of those of you old enough to be nostalgic

From a Sonic livestream today from the Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube channel players were told that the PC version of Sonic Mania was delayed - the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions are still on course for 15th August. "And we're going to maintain that level of quality and consistency and dedication to that quality".

Those who pre-ordered the collector's edition of Sonic Mania will still get their big attractive box on August 15.

Sonic Mania features the classic 8-bit retro graphics from the first titles in an advanced engine capable of rendering the game in high definition resolutions. Along with goodies such as a statue of Sonic standing on top of a Sega Genesis, the collector's edition comes with a digital code for Sonic Mania. The game is scheduled to launch later this month.

Dolphins rookie LB Raekwon McMillan believed to have suffered torn ACL
Despite signing Lawrence Timmons from the Pittsburgh Steelers in free agency, Miami doesn't have great depth at linebacker. Sheppard, 29, would be an interesting fit considering he spent two seasons with the Dolphins under their previous regime.


Not only do we get a look at a few badnik designs and the wireframe model used for Sonic, but we also learn that Amy Rose was planned to be playable.

Sonic Mania is the Sonic you remember: warm, friendly, definitely not doing any weird sex things.

Because it's old school (aka good) Sonic you don't have to worry about story spoilers here, just drink in the glorious '90s style animation. Let us know in the comments.
