Sonic Mania pushed to Summer release, another classic level is returning

Sonic Mania PS4 Xbox One PC Nintendo Switch Sega

While the recently-named Sonic Forces will be bookending 2017, fans of a more classic, 2D Sonic will be able to get their hands on the upcoming Sonic Mania much sooner. Just... maybe not as soon as you were initially expecting.

Sega announced at SXSW 2017 that Sonic Mania will now be releasing sometime in the Summer instead of its original Spring 2017 release date. It's unfortunate for sure, especially considering that many fans are more excited for this one over Sonic Forces due to it being a compilation/remix of levels from the classic 2D Sonic titles, but the good news is the delay isn't too long.

Also good news -- Sega announced another classic Sonic stage that would be returning in Sonic Mania: Flying Battery Zone. Fans will likely remember playing the stage from Sonic & Knuckles, along with its catchy theme.

Check out footage of the remade Flying Battery Zone below.

Hopefully this isn't the last we hear about Sonic Mania for a while. If Sega is following the Super Smash Bros. method of drip-feeding announcements, perhaps it won't be too long before we hear more about the game and its remaining levels.

Sonic Mania is coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch this Summer.

Are you disappointed to hear about Sonic Mania's delay?



I just want to play a good Sonic game already and they're making me wait longer. I mean, I guess they're going to polish it up to make it an even BETTER Sonic game, but based on what we've seen so far I didn't think it could get much better. I GUESS I WAS WRONG.


I like Flying Battery though. Dat music.

Now this is a Sonic game I can get behind. This looks like Sonic 2. I'm already loving it.
