It's studiopolis...

I think what Jango meant was the fact that Coke E-sports decided support Sonic Mania's release.

Thank you.

I'm snorting some coke right now, just to celebrate. Oh. Wait.

It really is like the 90's again. Sonic is being used to product place Coke (Cherry Coke) and the general public and differing media outlets are all hyped for the next Sonic game release...madness!!

Realtalk, I didn't even know about this. Sega have actually worked with Coca-Cola before?!

You're right; between Totinos and now Coke, this IS the 90s.

Yup, twice even to my knowledge. Once in the early 90's to help promote Cherry Coke, they had special units they lugged around in trailers to advertise the games and sell product.

They also shared advertising space in the late 90's for Sonic Adventure advertising too, though I'm not sure if they had any special events etc to go along with it.

Seeing Sonic on top of a building next to the Coca-Cola logo is the most surreal thing I've seen today

How did I not know about this

Could be wrong but I think that billboard was in Japan, for Sonic Adventure's launch.

What's a Pepsi Fire? *does a google search* Cinnamon flavoured Pepsi!? Bleurgh...

No contest that Sega made the better marketing deal here. A rancid version of Pepsi doesn't stand a chance against Classic Coke.

Did Sega steal borrow Coke's production philosophy with Mania?

Nah, for that to be true Sega would need to starting making a further 50 or so different kinds of Sonic games:

Sonic Freestyle - every Sonic fan gets their own distinct flavour of Sonic game. :P

Well, I've yet to see a sequel to Sonic Labyrinth or Sonic Shuffle. So I'd say that Sega is pretty focused one the most popular styles.

Of course, just talking about it, now I really want to play a new version of Sonic Shuffle...

Hey, you guys might like this from Tee Lopes:

Let me share a memory with you guys! This is my first 'Sonic The Hedgehog' remix, ever! the one that really started this journey towards Mania, although it never even made it to Youtube! It was made circa 2006, and at the time I was extremely proud of it!!! Have a listen! :D"

It's not a totally clean rip, but you can hear the track slightly better. I really love this remix for Chemical Plant Act 2. It's the best one so far. Start of with some Wacky Workbench and end with Metallic Madness.

So, we haven't seen eggman/robotnik in Mania yet.  What if he isn't the primary antagonist.  We might only fight him at the very end, facing off with HBHs throughout...
