Sonic Mania Plus gives fans what they want with a physical release

Jason Clement

Nearly a year after its initial release, SEGA has announced today that Sonic Mania will be getting an all-new edition of the game called Sonic Mania Plus.


This new version will not only be the first real physical version of the game, it also includes a SEGA Genesis reversible cover (for those nostalgic for old Genesis boxart covers), a 32-page art book, and two new characters: Ray the Flying Squirrel and Mighty the Armadillo.


The latter might be more familiar to longtime Sonic fans, since Mighty appeared in Knuckles' Chaotix on SEGA's short-lived 32X add-on for the Genesis. But both characters first appeared in a Japanese-only arcade game called SegaSonic the Hedgehog (no, I'm not making this up!).


SEGA says there is "more" to the game as well, leading us to believe they'll reveal more info leading up to its release. In the meantime, you can look forward to playing Sonic Mania Plus when it releases this Summer on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

While I'm still not a huge Sonic fan, I think things like this are great and I'm glad the Sonic fan base was strongly represented enough to show SEGA what they really wanted, it's super cool to see a positively reviewed Sonic game in modern times.

Man I am all over this game, even though it'll be the third time I buy it! Sonic Mania really is a freakin' awesome answer to the desire for dedicated old school 2D Sonic. I'm super happy I got the Collector's edition when it first came out and this will be a really great addition to that. Gotta! Go! Fast!
