Great news now I can finally play this.

Anyone know how Sonic Mania performed across three different platforms? It'll be interesting to see how it did on Switch versus PS4 and XBone

And here I thought Mania already had a retail version what with that collector's edition.

That would technically count, but the game itself was a digital download code and no game case.

This is what I got for buying digital. They did a cool retail release later. I don't believe in digital!

This. Retro or current Amy would be fine by me.

Agree
Amy need more love from Sonic

Very few games I'm willing to double dip on, but darnit, Sonic Mania is one of 'em.

Well I guess now I have a reason to get the Switch port then! This is excellent news

Ray and Mighty? What, I-I-I...what?

"Ray the Flying Squirrel"

Damn, homie. They dug deep for that one.

This comes a day after I finally got the true ending in Sonic Mania, and was thinking: "you know, it would be really cool if they did more with this Sonic series"

I thought those 2 new characters were bad OCs they showed for satire. ...But no, it's serious

It's great that it's getting a physical release, but that "plus" content is hot garbage.

Also will Europe get a proper Megadrive branded reversible cover?

- if you have Sonic Mania digitally, you get all the updated content in Sonic Mania Plus through a digital update

The plus content is not exclusive to the physical release...

Two new characters and new ways to complete each level huh. Thought I was done with the game...guess not.
