The Switch version of Rime finally releases in November. At Comic Con Russia and Igromir 2017, the game was on display, and Tequila Works producer Remy Chinchilla was in attendance. You can watch an interview with Chinchilla below.

During a recent SEGA live stream, Tyson Hesse stopped by. Hesse was responsible for the creation of the opening animation for Sonic Mania. As a special treat, viewers were treated to a look at one of the early animatic’s for the intro. It’s shown off in the video below with Hesse commentating throughout the whole thing.

One of the more interesting boss fights in Sonic Mania is the Mean Bean Machine. As a tribute to the original game on the SEGA Genesis, it has you battling Doctor Eggman with falling block pieces.

Sonic Mania director Christian Whitehead touched on the origins of the boss fight in an interview with IGN. He shared the following:

Update: We’ve confirmed that the version number is 1.03 on Switch.


Original: Sonic Mania’s first update is available now. We aren’t able to confirm the version number at present, but it could be 1.03.

In any case, one of the notable issues fixed concerning accessing the Switch home menu. Players have compiled other unofficial patch notes as well which can be found below.

Sonic Mania accolades trailer

SEGA released a new Sonic Mania trailer celebrating the accolades the game has received so far. Have a look at the video below.

Sonic Mania didn’t appear on the UK charts. There’s a good reason for that, however. As it technically counts as a digital title, it can’t be counted in the boxed charts.

The good news is that Sonic Mania is doing just fine so far. GamesIndustry reports that, after speaking with SEGA, “if digital downloads were included then its game would have topped the charts by a large margin.”

SEGA may provide sales figures down the road. On Switch at least, Sonic Mania has been topping the eShop charts. It’s held steady at the number one position since launch.

Sonic Mania launched around the world this past week. Right around the release, Japanese site Gamer spoke with series producer Takashi Iizuka from SEGA. Iizuka spoke about how Sonic Mania came to be, why DLC currently isn’t in the works, and how the special stages weren’t initially planned… plus more. Note: light spoilers follow towards the very end of the post.

Believe it or not, a Puyo Puyo-esque game mode is tucked away inside Sonic Mania. You can unlock Mean Bean Mode, though it’ll take some work. You’ll just need to get gold and silver medals in the Blue Sphere extra stages first.

Here’s some footage of the mode:
