    I'm pretty sure the specified reason they didn't go along with that was actually more for hitbox reasons than aesthetic reasons, as that would leave them either with on foot racers being much harder to hit than cars or with hitboxes disproportionately larger than their actual model to compensate.
    Now that being said:

    Amy's car in Sonic R isn't actually that much bigger than the other racers is it? If they went for a more stylized / chibi look like Sonic R did I could imagine them mitigating a sizeable amount of both issues. In the past this wasn't possible because characters tended to be introduced to the All Stars series with their own proportions and artstyles almost completely intact. Given that they're dealing only in one franchise, and by consequence one artstyle, I think it'd give them a lot more room to reign this in than they would've had before.
    Of course, they probably aren't going to be doing this anyway because the teaser made it pretty clear this was going to be a car based game. Oh well.

    No, not at all, if ALL the characters were foot racing.
    It's just that if Sumo Digital thought that racing on foot against vehicles would look weird during SASR's development, then I'm pretty sure they wouldn't bring it back after the previous Sonic racing games sold pretty well and got good reviews without it.

    Honestly, the whole "Sonic R 2" thing is kinda impossible. R sold poorly, and I'm almost positive that the R in the title is just a nostalgia reference thingy.
    I mean, I can take Sonic riding a motorcycle or his Extreme Gear, but foot racing against vehicles is just... Odd. Sonic All Stars Racing had that during it's development, but it was scrapped, and I don't see any reason for Sumo Digital to revive that old concept.

    The few announced details which coincide with that alleged leak were by and large things we already knew, and it also has some notable holes (GBA game provision, for instance, is nowhere in sight); furthermore, the game's title being "Super Sonic Racing" was debunked months ago by a source apparently considered reliable.  A pinch of salt needed.

    And what is with that background, this is Sonic not The Roadrunner, lol.

    Sonic as a replacement for the Transformers movies. Oh boy oh boy...
    I'd rather take the animated movie aimed towards 9-year-olds. Trying to make Sonic into a typical Hollywood action blockbuster sounds cringey to me. I doubt it would work, especially with Sonic and his reputation being what it is these days.

    I'd imagine so, since there are call backs to Wing Fortress in Act 2 of Flying Battery particularly. And the color pallet does look good for the stage.

    I've just done two gifs of the Sonic Mania Adventure Ep2 end-credits because they appear to tease the alternative color palettes for the zones in Encore mode:
     
    It has the sunset Green Hill design which was also shown-off in the Mania Plus trailer.
    The Stardust Speedway change seems interesting because we already know act2 is getting a bad-future make-over:
     
    So maybe the alternative green color in the end-credits is for SS act1 for Encore mode?
     

    The Flying Battery color change looks nice.

    Is it fair to include Unleashed in that though?
    While the wold "World Adventure" theme did pull from natural wonders and real world locals, I thought Sonic Team bent over backwards in designing places that captured the charm of all these exotic locals, while creating what was a suitable compromise between real and sonic-y. Even the human ensemble received cartoonish redesigns.
    It didn't feel like the usual push to include Sonic in the human world.

    Time Attack for Special Stages would be nice, but you know what else would be EPIC? Competition Mode for Special Stages. Imagine racing your pals in 3D for the Chaos Emerald!

    Time Attack for the Special Stages would be nice.
    While it's probably asking too much out of a rerelease, I'd love an entire mode dedicated to them. After all the game already has a Blue Spheres mode with new stages not seen in the main game (with new types of spheres even!), so I'd love to see Mania's special stages get the same treatment.

    I mean, I saw a fair amount of complaints (and even an entire article) on Mania resetting players to Act 1 after a game over. So I can kind of understand where the change has come from, even if I'm unlikely to get much out of it myself.

    I'm wondering if the new Metal Sonic Phase 3 is supposed to be something that is supposed to be a part of Encore Mode, and this update isn't actually complete, resulting in it being in the normal playthrough on accident.

    I don't know, as cool as the new Phase 3 is, it feels weird that they would completely erase the old Phase 3 forever. I'm buying Plus physically anyway, so don't really want to update the digital copy I already have if it means completely getting rid of anything unique to the game before version 1.04. At the same time, if the save data is supposed to transfer over, I'd probably need to update the digital copy in order to do that...

    There's a new screenshot for Encore mode (credit to @Jetronic for posting this in another topic) on the Japanese site for Mania, which shows off the bad-future version of Stardust Speedway (pretty sure this is for act2) and looks gorgeous:

    Using the other time-periods from Stardust Speedway as a different aesthetic for Encore mode makes a lot of sense. Hopefully Sonic will travel to the bad future via a cutscene in Encore mode (like how he travels from the past to present in Mania-mode between acts 1&2).
    I'm also pleased they've done this because I always felt it was a missed opportunity that the Metal Sonic boss fight in Mania mode doesn't take place in the future, which would have been a nod to the act3 boss fight in Sonic CD always taking place in the (good or bad) future.
    They could be even more clever, in that if you've already collected all seven chaos emeralds Sonic will travel to the good future version in act2 of SS for Encore mode, and if he doesn't have all emeralds he'll travel to the (above) bad future version. Think of it as a nod to the time-stones.

    Im reading too much into it, but Aaron saying we didn't announce any new zones, rather than there aren't any new zones, had me think there might be a chance, until he said but yes there will be a little bit of Angel Island.
