Nostalgia-Filled Sonic Mania Pre-Order Trailer Released

Sega releases Sonic Mania trailer, teasing the release date of the blue hedgehog's newest adventure.

With Sonic Mania hitting a fever pitch, Sega released the pre-order trailer for the newest installment of the franchise today.

In the trailer, we see a child-like drawing of Sonic transform into the Sonic we all know. He whizzes through a 2D background reminiscent of Green Hill Zone, passing by two drones before leaping into the air with a group of little birds. From there, we witness a 2D Sonic move his way through the various classic levels as the scenes alternate between himself and friends Knuckles and Tails.

Once out of those scenes, drawn Sonic joins an impatient Knuckles and Tails by an elevator. The doors open and the trio goes inside before Sonic passes an “M” button, unleashing a color explosion. The explosion reveals the release date — 8.15.17 — followed by hand-drawn Sonic and Sonic Mania packaging.

As the trailer ends, Sonic (in his traditional blue and tan) smirks while the elevator doors close on the trio — leaving fans with a lasting image of what they can expect from the upcoming game.

This new Sonic collaboration between Sega of America, Christian Whitehead, PagodaWest Games, and Headcannon will be launching later this year, on August 18th. Sonic Mania will be available digitally on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch (and bonus: it’s going to run at 60 FPS). 

Watch the new trailer for yourself above, and stay tuned to GameSkinny for more information as we draw closer to this highly anticipated launch!
