Also, The wording in Game Informer's article is weird. Chemical Factory? New Level? Huh?

And yeah, I was wrong on tweet... It has a new name - Chemical Factory X)

Chemical Plant is such a letdown because it could have been its way cooler cousin Oil Ocean. And since they seem to be going for the most obvious choices now it seems like the S3 level is pretty much going to be Icecap.

With that said, the second act looks and sounds pretty radical.

EDIT: Scratch that, the second act sounds amazing.

A bit soon for a new reveal, isn't it?  We only found out about Stardust Speedway just a little over a week ago.  And I share the disappointment that we're getting another Generations stage, no matter how well-done it is - and fair enough, it is really well-executed, all those Act 2 gimmicks are most exciting.  Well, fingers crossed for Sonic 2 getting two stages in Mania, then; that will mean less wasted revisit potential from Sonic 2, and it'll be easier not to mind the Mania team's energies being spent on a level that's already been remade recently.

I've noticed that the background is different here. The lack of light makes it seem like this Act takes place underground or inside a building or something. Hmmm...

From this angle, it looks like the Death Egg Robot's been upgraded with the power of Pingas.

"Paired with this mechanic is the series' first "bounce suit," which can be opened up by opening a bonus-item box. With this equipped, tap the "jump" button in mid-air to slam down to the ground and bounce back upward. This doesn't offer as big a jump as CPZ's bouncy pools, but it does let your hero of choice (Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles) get more height and speed than merely jumping. The result is a very interesting power-up for the sake of switching and optimizing your run routes (aka speedrunner-nip)."

Is this article just referring to the bubble shield? It sounds exactly like it but this paragraph seems to indicate that both Tails and Knuckles can use the bounce function as well? 

Perhaps the player is unfamiliar with the elemental shields and just assumes they act the same with all 3 characters.
