    At some point in the future, I'm going to write up a major review on the whole Mania package now that Plus is out and I've been able to play it.
    Man, I had so much fun with this.

    Even if this is true I'm ignoring it regardless. Mania Adventures fits right into the Mania > Forces plot line as basic as their connection is and I'm going to keep looking at this timeline as such. I'm not against the idea of different universes but this is getting silly. That being said veryone's free to interpret the story as they wish from this point ^^

    Wait.
    wut.
    Why would you do that.
    Mania Adventures would've been a great prologue leading up to Encore Mode's story.
    Mania's gameplay is fantastic but damn they dropped the ball hard with how they handled the story part of it. 3&K did it great. Sure at the end the story is pointless for a classic throwback game but if you ARE going to include a story in the first place then at least try to put some effort into it.
    Otherwise just make it a gauntlet of stages and I'll be completely fine. Don't half-ass it.

    I feel like its too soon to assume anything. He might be forced to say this, as until part 5 comes out, we can't be sure.

    Have you considered that the social media person under NDA may not be actually allowed to talk honestly and openly about details from things that aren't properly released yet?
     
    Like... the final episode isn't out yet. Actually watch the thing first before getting miffed about it.

    Part of me still hopes for changes to the final boss, but part of me worries that we wont get any changes at all, and the hydrocity transition will stay bad, no final boss changes at all, etc.
     
    Although that's my cynical side, I could be very surprised too!
    Something that confirms this quote was fake, he says he doesn't want to break embargo by showing gameplay, yet breaks the embargo anyway by telling us about it. A little hint that this was fake I guess you could say

    Ooo! So a Titanic Monach Final Boss may yet come to pass. *fingers & toes*

    A fight against the Titanic Monarch would have been awesome. Like most sonic games, I expected the Phantom Egg to be the Titanic Monarch act 2 boss, and then the Titanic Monarch to be the normal final boss

    Psychicmoose103 reacted to Son-icka in Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)   
    Perhaps, but I was rather expecting to be taking on The Titanic Monach as a fully fledged boss at the end of this game.
    I expected it originally in the initial release and felt quite let down by The Egg Reverie Boss, it’s just not that fun (more frustrating) and it’s quite anticlimactic for a Super Sonic Finale. Even the previous fight is more fun to tackle.
    I’d really hoped we’d take on Titanic Monach in either super / hyper form this time. Considering the giant mech is the end goal for the game in which I’m guessing the phantom ruby is supposed to power it... it feels like a bit of a wasted opportunity if they don’t do it - especially  as their dimension counterparts in forces were just a fancy aesthetic but a waste of time being a one hit QTE KO. This would have made up for it, I mean - you climb the entire thing For two acts - I’d love to take a whole Zone down! We’d finally have something that might just rival Doomsday in that sense.
    So, yeah all well and good to have a “pinch” for Egg Reverie - but I’m still gunna hope for something more - even if it’s unlikely.
    Other than that - I think what they’ve spruced up over the last year and spent time on is more than worth either a repurchase or just getting the DLC add-on alone. What an addition! Equally great still is the quality of life free update. Crash bandicoot just received its own QOL update and man is it better (and faster to load).

    I really like the mechanics of encore mode.
     
    Unlock new characters in life boxes instead of lives.
    You can find item boxes to swap both your characters or just the one your playing as
    Death results in the loss of the character you died as instead of a life
    And, during a boss fight, loss of a character will let you continue the fight as your other characters, a detail I find very cool.

    Going to back to stages, these are the ones I'd most like to see in the game:

    Details:
    Green Hill (1 and Mania) - Standard. It's going to be there, but this time it could transition into the underground caves of Mania's Act 2
    Chemical Plant (2 and Mania + Puyo Puyo) - We've seen it a lot recently, but I still love it. It's also a good excuse to include a cameo from another SEGA property!
    Oil Ocean (2 and Mania) - Now with submarines, this could be reminiscent of ASRT's Afterburner track. Moving from the classic version to a smog-filled disaster zone in the final lap would be cool
    Stardust Speedway (CD and Mania) - One lap for Past, Present and Bad Future
    Angel Island Tour (3&K) - Several people have requested this. The zones I would pick are the jungle, Hydrocity and Launch Base
    Lava Reef (3&K and Mania) – Plenty of scope for lap transitions. Maybe some Hard-Boiled Heavy cameos?
    Studiopolis (Mania) - A no-brainer. A casino-style level is essential and this would be stunning. Heavy Gunner could be a hazard
    Mirage Saloon (Mania) - You've got to have a pinball level and this is as unique a spin as you're going to get on it. The track could move from sunrise to full sunlight as the game version does and include cameos from Fang, Bean and Bark if they're not playable (although come on SEGA)
    Egg Carrier/Sky Deck (SA) - A very blustery track that could see the road tilting at certain points, as well as transforming in the final lap
    Pumpkin Hill (SA2) - Mania left us with no spooky level. I want ghosts and I want their sweet Pumpkin Soup
    The Ark/Final Rush (SA2) - We've had Death Egg and Starlight Carnival. It's time to race above the planet and below the looming cyberpunky satellite. Perhaps it could start to descend , break apart and destroy some of the track in the final lap?
    Windmill Isle (Unleashed) - One of the more beautiful and unique first levels that often gets overlooked in favour of Rooftop Run. I'd love to race through it again
    Aquarium Park (Colours) - Any chance of an Ecco cameo? Or...

    If we get any guest tracks:
    Spring Valley (Christmas NiGHTS) - If any SEGA property gets in, it's likely to be NiGHTS. And what would be better than the Christmas version? Nothing, I tell you. Nothing
    Kamurocho (Yakuza) - It may seem like an odd choice given it's age rating, but don't forget that no-one cared when House of the Dead got in. Yakuza's also been making a good splash in the west recently.

    Really hoping they put a stage from Mania in the game. Imagine racing through Press Garden or Studiopolis! (Would probably be studiopolis but any would be good)

    Psychicmoose103 reacted to ThinksButNoThanks in Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)   
    This speaks to me so much. One idea I had a while back was that maybe Act 2 gets frozen somehow, that way they could reference Icecap without having to bring it back, and make way for brand new gimmicks with the ice theme. Just imagine if Hydrocity 2 started with a frozen waterslide, and you snowboard all the way down like in the beginning of Icecap. All the ideas you gave sound like alot of fun, too. I always wondered how they could bring back the Death Egg warp tube thing. I still have yet to play Celeste, but it looks really good so I'm going to have to play that soon. Good thing you mentioned the music as well, I almost forgot about that. I agree that an original theme could be really great, especially if it had bits of the old one mixed in. But at the same time I wasn't the biggest fan of some of CD remixes in this game. 
    Pretty much, as I already stated I just wish this stage did more new things in the vein of CPZ and FBZ, just a little a little more creative.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but in gameplay you can see Sonic jumping from the foreground in encore to get to the other Sonic, which means Mighty respawn is him jumping back onto the map.

    I hope the zones are out of their regular order in Encore mode. Going to Angel Island, to Hydrocity, to Mirage Saloon would be nice. Studiopolis as the stage before Titanic Monarch.

    And, if the CD stages end up staying, maybe they use the US tracks this time, or maybe whatever time periods were unused? (For Stardust Speedway, the US Track is more likely because the Bad Future one is Metal Sonic’s theme).

    Wow. Just wow. I was super curious about encore mode but the fact that its a sequel story sort of to Mania is awesome! My hype has gone through the roof, and I am stoked for the trailer tomorrow!
    Some personal theories and thoughts...
    I like the idea of Mighty and Ray's story coming after S,T,K. Perhaps it happens at the same time as forces? This would sort of make the timeline for mania go...
    Sonic Mania (Sonic, Tails, Knuckles) ----> Sonic Forces + Mighty & Ray (Mania Mode!) -----> Encore Mode (not sure if adventures fits anywhere, perhaps before encore?)
     
    Following this, the fact that Angel Island is back is awesome! I really hope it's a full 2 act zone, because I would love to hear a Tee remix of both acts. Also i'm guessing Angel Island will be encore's first zone, and the rest will be scrambled. (So they will not be in the same order as Mania Mode.). Sunset Green Hill looks awesome as well!
    Hoping that Angel Island isn't the only new zone though. Will they replace certain levels as their encore variant? (I.e - Metallic Madness - Scrap Brain, Lava Reef - Mystic Cave) or will they be added on as well as the encore variants?
    Either way, I can't wait to see how this turns out. I'm kind of glad Mania was rushed, as this stuff might not have happened if it wasn't! I can't wait to read more of your guy's thoughts too!
