  • Sonic Mania’s animated intro is a thing of beauty

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.
