  • So what stores has this preorder bonus? Unless this is for ALL preorder right?

    • Felipe M.

      It appears it may be for all first print copies. Amazon UK has already changed their description to “Bonus Edition” and it wasn’t even confirmed.

      So yeah, I assume so.

  • Stuart

    I’ll take 10,thank you very much.

  • Suraimu

    Well thats strike one regarding bad things that will come out out of sega owning atlus.

  • mistnik

    Well there’s Persona 5 on the Switch…

    • Exy

      So this is what Atlus meant when they said their games are a perfect fit for Switch!

  • Shonenfan

    Hopefully we get more outfits. Sky of arcadia and samba de amigo !

    • jopamine

      I miss Blaze the Cat. Also the one from SoR

  • Roto Prime

    $40 USD?!!!!! Sega YOU CRAZY!!

    • Felipe M.

      Sonic Mania is way cheaper and infinitely superior yet people are surprised this is “only” and “just” costs $39.99. lol

      Yes, Sonic Mania is digital-only regrettably but that’s beyond the point. Publishers usually don’t care about the physical/digital difference and price it all the same.

      • Roto Prime

        well, no one can fight about Sonic Mania being a dream game come true, just waiting for that hard copy….I will, never forget seeing the game boot up for the first time….I cried….it was so beautiful….I can’t wait to own my own copys!!!!!

      • Kyren Lee

        Sonic Mania is a retro-style game that took a team of maybe 15 people on a low budget. Sonic Forces, like most other modern games, requires a massive crew and budget. Mania brought in a youtuber for the music, whereas Forces has full bands and string arrangements. The difference in price makes sense, regardless of how fun the games are

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Hah November 7th we get it before Japan!

    • Roto Prime

      We win!!! Now it is Japan turn to be salty…….That price is so good, hope Sonic Mania Hard Copy is next!!!

      • jopamine

        puyo tetris was also cheaper here… (bought the JP version to pay it early)

        • Roto Prime

          LOL, I got Azure Strike LE coming in the mail….like 2x+ the price here…..we are so impatient <3

          • jopamine

            You know I meant “play it early” right?

          • Roto Prime

            You know I love you right?! Lets Puyo Puyo BATTLE!!!!

          • jopamine

            oh man. i suck at puyo, im kinda decent at tetris.

          • Roto Prime

            Same here, Ahahahaha I can’t even get a four chain Puyo pop ;____;

      • anthony

        Do you guys seriously think Japan will give a damn about getting the game 2 days later? They don’t even give a crap about Sonic, so idk why you’re actually like you won a battle against them, lol.

        • Roto Prime
          • anthony

            ?

            I mean, I get the meme, but I don’t get the context of it here.

          • Roto Prime

            it was a joke that we get the game before Japan……

          • anthony

            Oh.

            Then my apologies for sounding aggressive about it, lol.

          • Roto Prime

            LOL, oh Pac Man Anthony, your too funny!!! Your picture makes me laugh so much cause of the eyes!

        • jopamine

          I don’t know how popular he is out there, but when I was in an English class in Japan, one of the students wrote a 5 sentence English essay about him. (about 5 years ago, now)

  • Roto Prime
    • TruExtent

      Thank you sir! I was all in when I heard $40 but then I remembered I have the Gamers Club Unlocked so I get an extra 20% off. Even better!

      • Roto Prime

        Oh yeah!! Got to save money to buy more games $40 for a new sonic game day one is madness!!! Thank you SEGA!!!

        • jopamine

          I saw the other controller skins, the Switch one looks the best

          • Roto Prime

            H YES, that Joy con grip!!! Its going to look so good now, I am very happy about this, in my dream tonight I will hope that if Sonic Mania happens hard copy we get Sonic Mania Skin for the Nintendo Switch, just like this!

          • jopamine

            i was thinking of getting mania on switch, but the dpad buttons felt weird for me when i tried Garou. i ended up getting it on xb1. if a physical copy does come out, sonic mania would look pretty sweet in a switch game case

          • Roto Prime

            Oh yeah, it totally would, I am going to play Sonic Mania with a fighting stick till Nintendo makes a D pad joy con!!!

          • jopamine

            FIGHT STICK!!! for… usfii?

          • Roto Prime
          • jopamine
          • Roto Prime

            Uuuuuuu, that looks good! Does it work on Nintendo Switch?

          • jopamine

            yeah, look up the 8bitdo controller
            u can use it on a pc or smart device too

    • Carlos

      Thanks! You are awesome!

      • Roto Prime

        NP my dude <3

  • LB

    i want a super monkey ball on switch! ;_________;

    • Roto Prime

      Noooooo, Now I want it too….

    • Addy

      I want a NiGHTS games that isn’t Journey of Dreams.

      • jopamine

        Agreed. 8 player chu chu rocket would also be very cool in 1080p. CAT ATTACK!

  • Zeebor

    Middle-Market price? Acknowledging that Sega owns Atlus?

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Sooo….we get a Persona 5 outfit, but can’t get the Sam-U-rai outfits from SMT IV? I get the popularity discrepancy is large, but come on.

    • Exy

      But then it might get people wrongly thinking that Shin Megami Tensei IV will be ported to Switch. Can’t have that, not while Persona is still hot. It’s much more profitable to get people wrongly thinking Persona 5 will be ported to Switch.

      • Markell Hawthorne

        We’re getting a new SMt game though.

        • Exy

          Ssh, don’t remind them yet. Wait until after everyone forgets about this stupid gag.

    • R.Z.

      I would love some demi-fiend glow-in-the dark tattoos.
      Not that I even plan to buy the game as of now, but I feel it could be spot-on with the “edginess” the game is going for.

  • ««H3©TöR»»

    ONLY 40 DOLLARS?! Wow, Sega has really been kind to my wallet this year. I was already getting this, but at 40 bucks, there is no excuse not to.

  • KnightWonder

    I would get the Switch version, but Sega couldn’t be bothered to smooth out the framerate.

  • Blanco8x8

    I’m pretty sure that this has already been asked, but is this finally a good 3D Sonic game?

    • KnightWonder

      It depends really. Lost World looked good, but turned out very mediocre.

      • Ardisan

        Lost World wasn’t that bad tbh. Its like in between meh and okay.

    • andrewsqual

      Depends on your thoughts on Sonic Generation. I thought it was garbage.
      There is nostalgic thrills to be had, hearing some classic Sonic music from the Mega Drive era. But that horrible Master System/GBA jump sound makes no sense.
      Then there is the horrible realisation that classic Sonic is TOO SMALL for the levels. He is tiny compared to ledges, springs and enemies and it’s horrible.
      Then you hit the first 3D Sonic stage and like all 3D Sonic stages, it simply does not work.
      Of course other people will tell you different, claiming it’s the greatest Sonic game in the last 2 decades (because that means so much with what it’s up against since 1995 lol).

    • Hidden Flare

      3d Sonic is…. A difficult thing to tell whats the best. Honestly if you like the boost from unleashed, colors, and generations, you’ll enjoy 3d sonic. Don’t know about classic sonic and cutstom hero. I suggest looking over some gameplay and deciding yourself.

    • Felipe M.

      This is pretty much Sonic Generations 2. I liked Generations like A LOT but Sonic Mania has made me spoiled.

  • TruExtent

    WAIT ONLY $40 DOLLARS??? SOLD! Plus while I’m not the biggest Jet Set Radio fan, I gotta admit the Beat costume is friggin great! The AiAi costume is fantastic as well; loved that series. The only other thing I’d want in terms of Sega costumes would be a Vyse get up. I’m planning g on playing Skies of Arcadia Legends at some point.

  • Tjnswitch

    WAIT !!! I love me some Sonic and i love cool SKIN but i was told (and saw a few things via the internet) advising me NOT to use skin on the joy-cons/Switch [strange chemical reaction to system finish)……so whats up with this type of “bonus ” if its gonna give you a bonus F-up !

    • Tjnswitch

      Can i get some feedback on this? You all know alot more than i do…..

      • Evan Gustavson

        ITS not a chemical reaction iirc. (Get a second opinion) The adhesive strips away part of the coating when it’s removed. So long as you never remove them, you’re good.

        • Tjnswitch

          Thank you ! I guess its going to stay on when i get it ! “Switch Switch bich” :o)

    • There are controller skins out there for the Switch. You just have to take the risk, I guess.

  • Auragar

    lol What? I want really interested in this game but now it has a skin for my boy boy Joker’s thief outfit and at a budget price that makes me more inclined to get it but I probably still won’t despite how arsine that skin looks. The other outfits are also nice but eh. Also lol there you go Persona 5 on Switch now you can all shut up and stop port begging for it as this is the only thing you’re gonna get. Super weird though that they included an Atlus skin but eh whatever not a big deal P5 has had tons of collabs so yeah. Especially since Sega does own Atlus unfortunately.

  • Addy

    Day 1 DLC and half-baked reason for Sonyboys to laugh at the Nintendo kNights.

    • andrewsqual

      Screw that. We have FAR better exclusives for 40 dollars in the last week alone. Uncharted Lost Legacy, Yakuza Kiwami and Everybody’s Golf just to name a few.
      I simply pity anybody who picks this up, no matter what platform they get it on.

      • Addy

        Those are PlayStation games. All Nintendo owners get are a bunch of indie games that won’t hit more then 100,000 copies/downloads.

  • andrewsqual

    So, next Sonic bomb confirmed for Nov 7th.

    So has it been confirmed that classic Sonic still looks like Honey I Shrunk the Hedgehog in this game, just like he did in Generations? Just awful.

  • anthony

    Still have very little interest in this game, though I have to say the 40$ price tag is a bit surprising. If the reviews are decent enough, maybe I’ll get it around Christmas time.

    • Felipe M.

      I mean, this is just like Sonic Generations so if you liked that then you’ll like this too.

      SEGA could have saved this for 2018 because the definitive Sonic game has already been released this year.

  • I’m going to wait until the last possible moment to preorder. I want to believe they’ll get the game running at 60fps on Switch. I’ll take it at 720p if necessary.

    • jopamine

      Can’t wait for the OneX enhanced version

  • Hidden Flare

    Cool if you like any of those series and that skin for the controller looks awesome but I may get the game later so I can’t say I would end up getting it.

  • Felipe M.

    I find it funny that SEGA is trying as hard as possible to market this game while Sonic Mania already stole the thunder, but hey, I appreciate their efforts. I’ve got Sonic Generations 2.. excuse me, Sonic Forces on pre-order for the Switch anyway.

    P.S. Apparently there’s a Shadow skin as well, from EB Australia.
