Sonic Mania Plus Launches July 17
Sonic Mania Plus will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on July 17 in the Americas and Europe for $29.99, Sega announced.
The physical edition of Sonic Mania Plus will include a holographic slip cover, reversible Sega Genesis / Mega Drive-branded sleeve, and 32-page Sonic Mania art book.
Sonic Mania Plus introduces two new playable characters from past Sonic games, Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel, and an “Encore” mode that will “provide a fresh look to familiar zones with new challenges and layouts.” The “Competition” and “Time Attack” modes will also receive an update allowing four player competitions, as well as ghost challenges for time trials.
As detailed in this week’s Famitsu (translation courtesy of Siliconera), Sonic Mania has also hit a significant sales milestone with over 1 million units sold worldwide across consoles and PC. Not a bad return to form for the series, especially since it just launched last August.
Users who purchased the original digital version of Sonic Mania will be able to get the new content via the “Encore” downloadable content pack for $4.99 / £3.99.
