Sonic Mania PC Release Delayed Days Before Launch

Sonic Mania PC version delayed at the very last minute

Sonic Mania celebrates the best of Classic Sonic, pushing the envelope forward with stunning 60 FPS gameplay and pixel-perfect physics, and will feature a split-screen multiplayer competitive mode. Sonic and his two original super friends run, jump and fly through a colorful fantasy world, having themselves a hell of a time.

Sonic Mania will launch on August 15, 2017at $19.99 USD/$25.99 CAD.

Sonic Mania was originally due to release on 15th August, unfortunately, it has suffered a delay, but thankfully not for too long. The offer will be available to those who pre-ordered either the Standard or the Collector's Editions.

In a tweet a letter from the team explains why they want to spend some extra time polishing the PC version.


Sega has released the opening animation video featured in Sonic Mania. We got to see a small portion of this a few months back, so it's nice to see the full thing. If Sega ever decides to make a new Sonic cartoon, it would be wise for them to go with a style like this.

If you haven't already, you can still pre-order Sonic Mania from Amazon.

New in this Sonic title is the addition of a new movement skill called the "drop dash" that allows players to instantly accelerate upon landing on surfaces.
