Sonic Mania appears to have a final release date. The game now has an official page on Steam, which shows a release date of August 15. SEGA has not yet officially announced this date so the news may very well have been uncovered early.
Sonic Mania was originally planned for release in Spring 2017. SEGA ended up delaying the game to an unspecified period during the summer. With E3 right around the corner, we should be hearing about the new August 15 date soon.
Ultra Street Fighter II – tech analysis and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix comparison
DigitalFoundry is back with its latest analysis focusing on Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. The full rundown is in the video below.
Key highlights are that the game runs in native 1080p while the Way of the Hado mode has some dips below 60 frames per second. Compared to last-gen’s Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, character portraits, the versus screen, and character select screen have been reworked to more closely match the original game, but Ultra Street Fighter II oddly has static backgrounds with the new style.

In the recently released trailer for Splatoon 2’s singleplayer mode, the grind rails were one of the most striking new features. They might seem similar to the ink rails from the first game, but you can actually shoot your weapon while you’re on a grind rail. The official Splatoon Twitter account published a couple more screenshots of the grind rails in action today. Check them out:
The account also published the following gif of the new rolling mats. Inking them unfurls them, albeit only temporarily, which allows them to be used in a variety of ways:
