Sonic Mania Plus is slated for July 17.

SEGA delivered plenty of Sonic Mania Plus news this week. The big announcement is the release date of July 17, and the first official trailer was shared online.

Japanese magazine Famitsu also had its own coverage of Sonic Mania Plus this week. In a two-page feature, an interview was published with Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka. Iizuka was asked about how Sonic Mania Plus came to be, including Ray and Mighty, and more.

You can read the full interview with Iizuka below.

SEGA announced just a few minutes ago that Sonic Mania Plus is arriving on July 17 in North America and Europe. It’s a new version of last year’s game with playable characters Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel and an Encore mode that provides a fresh look at familiar zones with new challenges and layouts. Competition and Time Attack modes have also been updated for four player competitions, and ghost challenges for time trials.

If you previously purchased Sonic Mania last year and have no interest in the new physical version, you’ll be happy to hear that you can still experience the new content. SEGA has confirmed that an Encore DLC pack will be available for $4.99 (£3.99) to upgrade to Sonic Mania Plus. It’ll be out alongside the new physical release in July.

We have some new screenshots from Sonic Mania Plus below.
