    What would a less automated breathing sequence look like? An area where you just hold forward and run through? Yeah, it might be nice, but it wouldn't really add anything to the gameplay if its just an area with no hazards that you can harmlessly pass through.
    The reason they have these little automations with the trick rings is to maintain a good pace. Pacing and fluidity are really quite important, particularly in later levels which can become quite challenging. It also gives them a chance to put in some nice set-pieces and background effects and allow the player to actually see them without having to worry about making a mistake/fucking up. They make some pretty scenery, sometimes I guess they want you to look at it for a second or two.
    Sonic Utopia is a cool little proof of concept. But it is little more than that. For me, its a huge empty space with nothing to do other than roll around. I suppose that could be fun....for a while. It offers the potential for more nuanced control, but there is nothing to actually do. Yeah I suppose you could use those physics and try designing a proper level, but I've yet to see an example.

    In case you're too lazy to read it all, these are the main points you might be interested in:
    -Yes, the panel is to talk about Sonic Mania and Project Sonic 2017, and Iizuka will be there specifically to talk about the latter, so expect the first true info blowout on it.
    -Roger and Pollock are confirmed to have roles in PS 2017. Not too hard to imagine who they'll portray (or is it?).
    -Take a look at these words about his teaser campaign:

    Spring Yard Zone act 2 and Collision Chaos zone 2 both have two alternate signpost exits. And many Sonic 3&K levels have different starting/end points for Sonic and Knuckles.
    What's the message I want to get across? DEFINITELY expect certain acts in Sonic Mania to have two starting or end points (maybe even three!).

    One thing about this image...

    Who's piloting that Egg-mobile? Note that Heavy Gunner is hanging on the side. Some people think an Eggrobo will be after Knuckles as in in Sonic 3&K. But it seems more like a generic badnik, like those three flying by themselves. Could we see Eggrobos as regular in-level badniks again?

    I've been thinking... If they decide to include a Mecha Sonic fight in this game, it should come with a different design, since we've seen like, 4-5 designs from Sonic 2 GG to Sonic Adventure.
    Or... I don't know if Sonic Dimension (the LEGO pack) is to be counted as "canon" but, since it brought back both the Sonic 2 version and the Sonic 3(&K) version -the former under the name "Robo Sonic" to differentiate-, Sonic Mania might feature a similar boss rush with the same two robots, especially since they're the "main game" versions.
    I'd prefer the former option, but I wouldn't mind the later either.

    Technically, every model of Sonic that's not Metal Sonic is a Mecha Sonic, including the one commonly called Silver Sonic (that's a made-up name for it, probably derived from the 8-bit bot).

    Today is 1st March, we're already in (meteorological) spring, WHER'S MAH SANIC???
    Now seriously: I'm placing all my bets on a 25th April release, since it falls on a Tuesday and doesn't look at all to be a placeholder data. And the SXSW panel is just two weeks away, I'm pretty sure we will know the date by that day.
