Sonic Mania Opening Released Early After Unauthorised Streams

From a Sonic livestream today from the Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube channel players were told that the PC version of Sonic Mania was delayed - the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions are still on course for 15th August.

Sonic Mania will finally release next week for console owners.

Also, during the special announcement live stream the presenters, which included Sonic Team creative director, Kazuyuki Hoshino and the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog on Twitter and meme mastermind Aaron Webber, revealed that certain copies of the collector's edition will be signed by members of the Sonic Team. The previously announced Collector's Edition of Sonic Mania can be pre-ordered here for a limited time.

If you're just getting caught up, Sonic Mania is simultaneously a re-release of the Genesis games and some wholly new stages, all of which have been remixed and remastered with new controls, features, and graphics. It's now set to launch on August 29, so there are just a couple extra weeks of waiting ahead. We got to see a small portion of this a few months back, so it's nice to see the full thing.

That's not to say you won't enjoy it no matter when or why you joined the Sonic fandom, but this video should definitely speak most clearly to those old enough to remember plugging cartridges into other cartridges so they could play as Knuckles in Sonic 2.
