Sonic Mania Coming August 15; Pre-orders Beginning Now

Sonic Mania, the throwback title to the classic Sonic the Hedgehog games of old, finally has a release date. Mark August 15 on your calendar and get your running shoes ready.

The game will let players take the role of Sonic, Knuckles or Tails as they pursue Dr. Eggman. It is a throwback to classic Sonic, but with 60 FPS gameplay and improved physics. The game will have new zones, as well as re-envisioned ones from the older games, with new paths and new secrets for players to discover.

Sonic Mania was originally supposed to launch some time this spring, but was delayed. The game will be coming for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch for $19.99. Pre-orders have already begun, except for Switch, which won't go on sale until the game officially launches. A special Collector's Edition, which includes a Sonic statue with audio, is also up now for pre-order for $69.99, but for a limited time.
