'Sonic Mania' News: PC Version Delayed, SEGA Makes It Up With ...

Sonic Mania was developed by Christian Whitehead, Headcannon, and PagodaWest Games in collaboration with Sonic Team.

A full list of approved partners has been released, so people who pre-ordered a PC copy of Sonic Mania can make sure they qualify for the free Sonic the Hedgehog.

10/10 - The Sixth Axis: "Sonic Mania surpasses the Mega Drive/Genesis originals". With that in mind, here are five reasons to look forward to Sonic Mania. The game is created to look, and feel like a lost Sonic sequel. Instead, it evokes old Sonic games in clever ways, incorporating new Chaos Emerald special stages reminiscent of the Blue Sphere stages in Sonic 3 & Knuckles and even calling back to Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine in a way that's just too good to spoil.

The levels, while familiar, have been redesigned with fresh elements that we won't spoil for you here. There will also be new abilities to help our heroes take on Dr Eggman's robots including Sonic's new drop dash, Tails' flight and Knuckles' climbing ability. The PC version has been delayed until August 29.

Sonic the Hedgehog is going 16-bit in his next adventure, Sonic Mania, and the retro-inspired platformer will be available to download for the PS4, Switch, and Xbox One on August 15.

Are there any multiplayer modes?

Additionally, there's a competitive racing mode to beat an opponent to the end of a stage.
