According to the European Steam Pages of Sonic Mania, the release date of the upcoming return of everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog may very well be August 15th, 2017. Shown as at the end of a revised announcement trailer, the date now shows August 15th, 2017, as opposed to the original Summer 2017.
Sega has yet to comment on this change, but we will be keeping a very close eye on this story as it develops.
Regardless of release date, Sonic Mania will be headed to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. It plays and looks in the classic style of the original Sonic titles, yet brings new and remixed stages to the table. Interestingly enough, Sonic Mania isn’t the only Sonic title we will be getting this year, as Sonic Forces will also be releasing for the above systems. This title will put you in the shoes of the modern Sonic, the classic Sonic, and a new character that you will be able to create.
