On May 11, SEGA released new gameplay footage of Flying Battery Zone Act 1 from Sonic Mania, featuring Knuckles the Echidna. You can watch the video in the header above.
Sonic Mania is an upcoming game developed by SEGA of America, Headcannon, PagodaWest Games, and Christian Whitehead. It’s expected to release this summer.
There has been a lot of hype for the game so far. This 2D throwback will feature the classic playstyle of the original Sonic the Hedgehog games, where players can play as either Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles in an adventure with brand-new zones, bosses, and character abilities. In addition, the game will run at a reported 60 FPS.
