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

Recommended Posts

Simultaneously disappointed it's Chemical Plant and relieved it's not Aquatic Ruin. I'm hoping Sonic 1 at least gets another zone to represent it since we've had both Green Hill and Chemical Plant in Generations.

I like what I'm seeing from this version though considering I was never the biggest fan of it in Sonic 2.

That's a little disappointing considering Generations and all, would have preferred a zone not noticed as much but still obviously it looks cool. 

Also very interesting how we get to see both act 1 and act 2. Act 2 seems to be inside of a structure. Some inspiration from Wacky Workbench with that pool of bouncy slime, and I've never really seen platforms like those purple ones you hang onto before in any classic Sonic game. That swirling tube Tails slides down is taken from Quartz Quadrant. Also note you can actually decide what direction you are going in the act 2 tubes, reminds me of S&K Death Egg.

Also, I get some Hydrocity vibes from the way you can see partially another path composed from the loop. That means there may be more parts directly inspired from Hydrocity. I think it's a pretty safe bet Hydrocity won't be showing up with how similar Chemical Plant is.

I fucking knew it, Chemical Plant is coming back, I would have gone for Mystic Cave or Aquatic Ruin Zone but hey, hopefully they'll choose Mystic Cave next from Sonic 2, I would love to see some degree of mining gimmicks in Mania.

I swear to God if the next remastered level is Sky Sanctuary, I'm gonna...

 

 

 

be very happy because I would actually like to see how the Mania team re-invents that level, that would be pretty interesting.

To all those disappointed about Chemical Plant being the Sonic 2 rep, I wouldn't worry. We now basically know that there's 7 classic zones at the very least. Sonic 2 will get another stage. Count on it.

If so, then fingers crossed on Mystic Cave.
