Sonic Mania

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.
