SEGA announced Sonic Mania tonight at their 25th Anniversary Event. The game is a 2D classic platfomer with reimagined levels from past entries in the series as well as some brand new experiences. The game is being co-developed by SEGA, PagodaWest Games, along with developers Christian Whitehead and Simon Thomley. Please take a look at the reveal trailer.
Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka explained that Sonic Mania is a “passion project” that “was born out of our fans’ love of the classic Sonic 2D platform games.” He continued, “This type of collaboration is a first for SEGA and we hope everyone will be both surprised and delighted by this title.”
