IGN has another couple of videos up showing Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania in action. Both can be found below.

In addition to Sonic Forces, SEGA also showed off Sonic Mania footage during Twitch’s Pre Pre Show at E3 2017. Have a look at the video for gameplay of the Green Hill Zone Act 2 boss battle and more.

Sonic Mania features a mix of remastered stages from previous entries in the franchise as well as new ones. In its recent reveals though, SEGA has been focusing on the older levels. There is a purpose behind this.

Speaking during an official live stream a couple of days ago, Sonic PR and social media manager Aaron Webber explained that SEGA is showing more of the classic stages so that the new ones will remain a surprise for players. Webber added that they don’t want to spoil the entire game for fans. When we get closer to launch, if there happen to be any unauthorized spoilers, it’ll then be up to each person to decide if they want to spoil things for themselves.

Webber also commented on the length of Sonic Mania during the live stream. Ultimately it’ll come down to how much players explore levels and how fast they go. Similar to early classic Sonic games, “if you’re really good” and “if you know all of the tricks, you can shave off a lot of time.” However, “it will still take awhile if you want to beat the game as Sonic, as Tails, and Knuckles.” Webber also teased “other elements” that can extend gameplay, which we assume will be discussed later. 

Update: Correction – we’ve now received the official announcement from SEGA. As some have thought, the final name is Chemical Plant Zone. Not Chemical Factory Zone.

Original: Game Informer has a first look at a new Zone in Sonic Mania. View a couple of videos showing off Chemical Factory below.

If you’re picking up the Sonic Mania: Collector’s Edition, it’ll cost you $70 (or perhaps a bit less if you have something such as Amazon Prime). But if you’re going for the standard version on the eShop, the game will be priced significantly less. We have confirmation from SEGA that Sonic Mania is planned to cost $19.99 ($25.99 CAD).

In other Sonic Mania news, new screenshots and art are in. Find the latest images below.

Last week, news leaked out through Sonic Mania’s Steam page that the game will be launching on August 15. SEGA has now followed up and made it official.

Here’s a new pre-order trailer:

More extensive footage for Rime has been posted online. It’ll be a bit longer until the Switch version of drops, but you can view the game’s first 50 minutes below.

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.
