Sonic Mania Is Getting An Expanded "Plus" Release This Summer

You can check out the original Sonic Mania opening below. It looks like the spiky one and his chums are giving animation another try, only this time the hands of a proven team.

What was unexpected, though, was the announcement of Sonic Mania Plus, a deluxe version of last year's Sonic Mania to come out of the blue.

Sega, however, announced at the Sonic the Hedgehog panel at this year's SXSW that a physical release for Sonic Mania will be rolled out with Sonic Mania Plus.

Sonic Mania Plus will retail for $29.99 or the regional equivalent, and the package features a reversible sleeve and holographic slip cover. Lastly, Sonic Mania's split-screen multiplayer racing mode, known as Competition Mode, will be expanded to accommodate four, rather than the current two, players.

Sonic Mania is available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Then, to the surprise of many, a silhouetted logo appeared with only a bright red "R" being lit up.

Now, about that Sonic the Hedgehog racing game teaser: well, there's nothing more to add sadly.

Unfortunately, not much else was revealed about the upcoming title.

Sega has just teased a brand new Sonic Racing game but, at the moment, we have no idea what it is going to be or what it will be called.

Sega has announced that a short, animated five-episode series starring Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, and Miles "Tails" Prower will be coming very soon.
