Sonic Mania (August 15th 2017, Christian Whitehead, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch) - The New Classic

Recommended Posts

Yeah the suspicious hard-boiled heavy animation is why I'm still cautiously optimistic for an in-game animation.  The trailer being done by Tyson put the idea in my head that maybe several artists were collaborating on them, but maybe not.

I don't remember what's the source, but I'm pretty sure the game's size has been stated to be around 108mb, so I don't think there's space in there for animated cutscenes. I think the Hard-Boiled Heavy animation is for another trailer, maybe launch trailer?

Story reveal trailer? Information we have seems to be point to the Mirage Saloon Portrait heavy, the one in the middle of all artwork, and the one in the animation, being the leader.

I was thinking more along the lines of release trailer, something not too deep just to show who the enemies will be. But anything is possible, I'd like a story trailer.

There's probably room. Sonic CD is 260MB, but you can reliably cut that nearly in half due to there being two soundtracks. 100some MB is twice as much data that Sonic 1 or 2 have. 

For those interested, the US soundtrack is 26.3 MB, and the JP one is 22.4 MB, and they are ogg files. The videos for the intro and endings are 191 MB combined, making up the bulk of the game.

The download on Steam for CD is 320MB and once extracted it's actually more than that. I think it went up to about 500MB.

So, maybe we are going to see an intro and that's it.

Well... I don't know. Mania's supposed filesize is 108MB, but that's from the pre-order that is usually encripted and compressed. It could be much bigger than that, so if we're around the 200MB mark at least, yeah we could see an intro, maybe an ending video too?

Someone may have a source floating around, but didn't Taxman mention that there was only going to be one more trailer before release? In responce to someone saying they didnt want all the zones etc spoiled before release like Generations. That was before the pre-order trailer, so unless plans changed due to the delay in release that's all we are getting as far as trailers go.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that's all the info we will get, as like with the mystery zone on the licencing pics etc its likely we will have some more bits and pieces drip fed before release through different avenues. But outside a possible release day trailer to grab some extra attention as most games do these days I wouldn't hold out on any between now and then.

I'm not so sure Mania's file size is actually gonna be 108 MB. I preordered both Mania and Madden 18 for Xbox one and they were both 108 MB. I mean, M18 was only 108.1 compared to 108.8 for Mania, so maybe it actually is, but I'm thinking it's just a preorder thing

Stardust Speedway means Metal Sonic race re-imagined, right?!

Oh yeah.

Would the Boss be Metal Sonic in Act 1/2? Would there be a rematch while outrunning giant hedgehog eating robot plants?

Not sure. Since CD's race was either win or die, I don't know how that would work for Act 1 boss and have Metal Sonic fight you in Act 2. I would be down for a thrilling race, though. @Miru the Living Planet

If they plan to release the game on mobile, they should try to make it as small as possible. 

What. Where did they say they were worried about mobile

Yes, I did. I know it hasn't been announced, but why wouldn't they port it? It's based on the same engine of the Sonic 1, 2 and CD remasters.
