SEGA’s panel for Sonic at SXSW 2017 this past week was packed with plenty of news. Updates were shared for both Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, the latter of which was given its final name and had gameplay shown. For those that missed the panel, you can watch it below.

SEGA has followed up on news shared at its Sonic SXSW panel yesterday with a couple of new images for Sonic Mania.

First, shown above, is an official look at one of the new art pieces that debuted. It looks like a boxart image, but SEGA is simply calling it “key art”.

Below is an image teasing the Hard-Boiled Heavies bosses in Sonic Mania with a silhouette. Only one has been revealed thus far – that being Heavy Gunner.

At SXSW, SEGA had a poster on hand for Sonic Mania featuring brand new art of the game. Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles are all present in the image. Have a look at it above.

SEGA shared a new reveal for Sonic Mania at the series’ SXSW panel just a few moments ago. The company gave a first look at Flying Battery Zone with a few seconds of footage. Originally, the area appeared in Sonic & Knuckles.

Here’s a video of it in action:

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:

Sonic Mania is due out on Switch later this year. Fortunately, when it’s ready, there won’t be any compromises made to the actual release.

SEGA’s Aaron Webber told Nintendo World Report in an interview at PAX that Sonic Mania will be on Switch at the same time as other platforms. Furthermore, it will be the same price. With talk circulating about some third-party games costing more on Switch, this is certainly encouraging to hear.

SEGA hasn’t had much to say about Project Sonic 2017 since the original announcement last July, but we are finally receiving an update soon. A Sonic panel will be hosted at SXSW 2017 next month, and a “new reveal” is planned for the game as well as Sonic Mania. An “exclusive behind-the-scenes look” is promised for both titles.

Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka will be on hand for the panel along with SEGA’s Aaron Webber and Mike Pollock plus voice actor Roger Craig Smith. Surprises are also teased.

The Sonic SXSW 2017 panel will be hosted on March 16 for about an hour beginning at 3 PM PT / 6 PM ET / 11 PM in the UK / 12 AM (March 17) in Europe.
