Sonic Team feels the Sonic franchise has 'turned a corner' following Mania's release

How about a sequel?

Sonic Mania was a very special moment for the Sonic franchise. After years of releases that were pegged as good-to-mediocre, Sonic Mania became a major hit with both critics and gamers alike. It was a return to form for Sonic, and it absolutely paid off.

In an interview with LadBible, Sonic Team's Takashi Iizuka mentions how important Sonic Mania has been for the franchise in general.

"...post-Mania, I feel the character, and the games, have really turned a corner, towards where we want it all to go."

Sonic Double Pack - cover art

Well that solves that mystery. Amazon Italy has updated their Sonic Double Pack listing with cover art, and now we know for sure that Sonic Forces is the game being bundled up with Sonic Mania Plus. Still no word on this retail double pack seeing release in North America.

Amazon Italy lists a 'Sonic Double Pack' for Switch

Our friends at JPSwitchMania have found an interesting listing on Amazon Italy. Looks like SEGA has plans to double-up on a pair of Sonic releases for Switch. We know that one of the titles included is Sonic Mania Plus, but the other title isn't specifically mentioned. The one detail we know is that it's a 3D Sonic title, which most likely means Sonic Forces. Once we get more details on this double pack, we'll be sure to bring them to you.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!
