Eurogamer spoke with Sonic Mania director Christian Whitehead as part of a feature exploring the creation of the game. One interesting topic brought up is what actually makes a Sonic game.

Whitehead shared the following on that front:

SEGA published the second and final video in its Sonic Mania Plus developer diary series, included below. It features Sonic Mania developer Christian Whitehead and Takashi Iizuka, VP of Product Development for the Sonic franchise. They discuss adding content for the Sonic Mania Plus edition of the game.

Sonic Mania Plus made its debut earlier this week. It’s true that it includes some new content, but improvements have been made as well. Digital Foundry has taken a closer look.

When Sonic Mania originally launched last year, Bonus Stages took a frame rate hit on Switch. Now, however, this has been fixed entirely. These stages run at a smooth 60 FPS. You can expect that in both docked and portable modes.

Earlier in the week, Sonic Mania was updated to support the upgraded Sonic Mania Plus version and more. If you’re interested in checking out the patch notes, continue on below.

AbdallahSmash026 has taken a close look at the Encore Mode in Sonic Mania Plus with over three hours of footage. Watch the gameplay video below.

SEGA has just released the fifth and final part of its new Sonic Mania animated web series. View the latest episode for Sonic Mania Adventures below.

A new update has gone live for Sonic Mania on Switch. Version 1.04 is out now.

It goes without saying that today’s update paves the way for the new Sonic Mania Plus version. Other than that, it’s unclear if there are any other changes or additions. We’ll report back if any other findings turn up.

Note that there’s a $4.99 upgrade price for Sonic Mania Plus for those who previously purchased the original game.
