Earlier today, Sega opened a countdown website teasing the reveal of a new installment in the Phantasy Star series. It’s part of the 30th anniversary celebration of the franchise, with the official reveal coming at noon Japan time on the 24th of July.

We do know that the game will be for iOS and Android, but no further information has been given yet.

During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, SEGA showed off a new video for Team Sonic Racing. It gives us a look at a new track, featuring Big the Cat.

Here’s the off-screen recording:

Team Sonic Racing is due out on Switch this winter. Prior to that, the game will be receiving a single, special comic issue.

SEGA announced the news during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con today. IDW Publishing, who is handling the latest Sonic comics, is in charge of the special issue. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ writer Caleb Goellner is writing the story, while Sonic the Hedgehog comic veteran Adam Bryce Thomas is acting as illustrator.

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.
