The wait is almost over! Sonic Mania Plus, the definitive version of the critically acclaimed platformer Sonic Mania, is set for release on July 17, 2018. As fans wait for the game’s launch, SEGA released a two-part developer video series that gives a unique look into the upcoming game as well as a retrospective of the original Sonic Mania.

Part 1 with Kazuyuki Hoshino (Sonic Team Creative Director) & Tom Fry (Sonic Mania Plus Art Director) released today as the duo dives into the exciting additions coming to Sonic Mania Plus, including newly added features, playable characters, and collectible packaging. Tom also discusses the backstory behind the creation of Sonic Mania Plus and the working relationship between him, Hoshino-san and Sonic Team. Fans can tune-in to view it on the official Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube channel here.

Sonic Mania Plus builds off the momentum of one of the best platform games of 2017, Sonic Mania, introducing two new playable characters, Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel, and an Encore mode that will provide a fresh look to familiar zones with new challenges and layouts for new and veteran players alike. Competition and Time Attack modes will receive an update allowing four player competitions, and ghost challenges for time trials. The all-new physical edition will also come with a 32-page collector’s artbook, a reversible SEGA Genesis cover, and holographic packaging.

Fans can now pre-order the game digitally for Nintendo Switch™, Sony PlayStation®4, and Microsoft Xbox® One at participating retailers for $29.99. For all those who purchased the original digital version of Sonic Mania on consoles and PC, an Encore DLC pack will be available for sale at $4.99 via Steam and first party stores on July 17, 2018 to upgrade to Sonic Mania Plus.
