During a livestream, Sega revealed the PC port of Sonic Mania will now launch on August 29. That is strictly two weeks after it releases on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Sega determined to delay this launch so as to higher optimize the sport.
Those who pre-ordered the collector’s version of Sonic Mania will nonetheless get their massive stunning field on August 15. Along with goodies resembling a statue of Sonic standing on prime of a Sega Genesis, the collector’s version comes with a digital code for Sonic Mania. This code gained’t unlock the sport till August 29 for PC customers, however it is going to enable them to declare a free copy of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Sonic Mania has been delayed a number of instances already, so this announcement actually stings. At the identical time, the sport is being delayed for a good cause. We’re all the time listening to about how buggy video games are at launch nowadays. This is one thing the Sonic crew doesn’t need for Sonic Mania, so that they’re taking their time to get issues proper.
In different Sonic Mania information, Sega not too long ago launched a video of the sport’s intro. We obtained to see a small portion of this a few months again, so it’s good to see the complete factor. Sonic Mania is closely impressed by Sonic CD, and this animated intro is not any completely different in that regard. If Sega ever decides to make a new Sonic cartoon, it will be smart for them to go together with a type like this. I’ve seen the intro of Sonic CD extra instances than I can depend, and I’ll actually watch the intro for Sonic Mania a ton of instances too. Everything about it’s implausible.
If you haven’t already, you’ll be able to nonetheless pre-order Sonic Mania from Amazon.
