Sonic Mania pushed back to Summer 2017

Posted on March 16, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos

The original goal with Sonic Mania was to have the game out in Spring 2017. Unfortunately, the game is now seeing a bit of a delay.

Just announced at Sonic’s SXSW panel, Sonic Mania will now launch this summer. The extra time will be used to ensure that it’s of the highest quality.

This piece of new art also just debuted:

The following image was teased at the panel as well:

  • Lolo

    Nice…now all we have is a Mario kart re release for spring…the switch’s launch is starting to look like a bore fest.

    • Stryder

      You could also, ya know, buy Disgaea 5 and ARMS when they come out… lol

    Well I got nothing to play on my Switch, and I still have no games for it.

      Finished Zelda earlier this week (story-wise and most of the optional missions worth doing) so nothing to play on it. Bomberman kinda sucks which takes away the fun out of it for me. :-/

      • Addy

        I was going to get Bomberman, but after hearing about the controll issues and lack of content and features for a not-quite full priced game made me had to wait for a price drop to about $30 at most.

        Speak for yourself because I’ve been having a lot of fun with Bomberman. If you can believe it my play log says that I’ve put the same amount of time into Bomberman as Zelda. With the story mode, many options for multiplayer, and online I think it’s definitely worth the money. I also read that Konami plans on releasing DLC for it. To each their own though.

        On topic: that’s sucks that Mania got delayed but I’ve got Mario Kart, Arms, Shakedown Hawaii, and Mr. Shifty for my Spring gaming so Splatoon 2 and Sonic Mania will be great games to play over the summer.

      Why did you even buy the console then? There won’t magically be games to fill the schedule and delays are always possible

      • Addy

        My brother’s roommate pre-ordered one for me and I couldn’t refuse. It was also during a point where I had the stigma with the Wii U the past 2 years, and most of the game announced for launch besides BotW and maybe Super Bomberman R didn’t show much intrest to me. I wanted to get BotW for Wii U then the Switch for collector’s purpose, but after hearing about the Switch version’s poor performance, I decided it was not worth it. That video, you which one, greatly put me off setting up the Switch, and yes, I’m aware the defects like faulty screens, crashing, and game cards not being read are at a small, very small amount, but the dock scratching the screen, the left Joy-con desyncing are quite noticeable. And to this day, my Switch is still in it’s box, never unopened, and still waiting for a game worthy of purchase, and for Nintendo to make a more better dock that isn’t cheaply made. Also I’m on a budget at this so I can’t just spend much right now.

        • Tlink7

          Get your roommate to buy me a Switch too xD shame you were put off by some graphical deficiencies, BotW could still be a game you really enjoy.
          I think Mario Odyssey is going to be pretty awesome

          • Addy

            Until Odyssey comes out, there’s not much going on with the Switch for me. I do own the Wii U version of BotW, but not getting the Switch version due to how poorly optimized that ended out to be. The game was to made it perform better when docked, not the other way around, Nintendo. Not quite on the level of AAA games not working out of the box properly, but it’s getting there.

  • Felipe M.

    That’s fine. I hope there’s gonna be a Switch hard copy edition.

  • Advance*

    I guess people just love to be negative and complain, because why else would you buy the Nintendo Switch at launch and then complain about the early release schedule? You knew what you were getting. There wasn’t going to suddenly be a surprise Metroid game in April.

    good,the polar opposite of Sonic BOOM getting rushed out the door…or bad,it’s a 2d throwback game from a major developer that will now be released over a year after it’s released. Sonic BOOM was their holiday cash-in game so I could see them rushing that out because they didn’t want to hire new staff,and something like this gets delayed for the same reason. I like how disappointment is a recurring trademark of the Sonic games,second only to speed.
