Sonic Mania

Post by Valigarmander » Mon Nov 07, 2016 7:13 am

Thought there was already a thread for this, but apparently not.

Sonic Mania
is a new title from Sega coming out next year. It's a throwback to the Genesis quadrilogy, featuring Sonic, Tails and Knuckles as playable characters, and all new stages as well as "remixed" levels from past games (such as Green Hill Zone). I really loved the Genesis Sonic games (they're the only Sonic games I've played much of, really), and this is looking pretty cool. Anyone else excited?

Not sure why this is taking so long to release. The graphics are basically indie stuff at this point and Sega is big so...

Anyway, I am still interested.

I believe SEGA actually hired some well-known ROMhackers in the Sonic community to work on this title.

I'm certainly interested in playing this.

There should also be a game called Sanic Mania. A compilation of everything Sanic. Everything. All the Sanic memes as games.

It's not really a matter of the graphics, theres a lot more that goes into making a *polished* game. Plus as I recall the team behind this are very small (christain whitehead I believe is on the team as well, he made some excellent sonic ports)

theres a whole bunch of other reasons why the release date is a fair bit away, the other sonic game in production right now might be a reason, even.

but yeah you're right this looks SO CRISP.

The graphics, the music, the level design, the enemies all look on point. I really like that the levels have multiple possible routes, like in StH3&K. I'm pretty excited for this.

I honestly did not expect to be hyped for this game bc I didn't think I would have a system to play it. Once it got confirmed for Switch though I realized that it will be a real possibility for me to **** play a Sonic game AS TAILS and it will ACTUALLY BE FUN for like THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG ASS WHILE

AND NOW I'M JUST AS EXCITED FOR THIS AS I AM FOR ZELDA

I'll definitely be picking this up. It looks pretty. Really curious to see where they go with it. And if the music in that trailer is any indication of what the rest of it will be like... :D
