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

Recommended Posts

I would really like to see the Death Egg look abandoned, dusty, and kinda worn down like the Space Colony Ark. Just without the Edge, G.U.N., or Maria

It seems quite possible that it is still in space!  i do wonder now if Act 2 took place on the moustache/nose area, though it is never made too clear and it could be anywhere on the outside, meaning that what was damaged and began to fall apart near the end, not damaging the main craft.  Then otherwise parts of it may be on land again somewhere.     

IF, Super/Hyper Sonic exploded the Death Egg (behind the scenes) ala the Sonic Unleashed intro, it most likely fell down, pieces of it, at least. If he and Eggman simply flew out of it, it is possible that the Death Egg stayed there. Since it was already in orbit, it couldn't just fall down on Earth. The Master Emerald's power was needed to launch the damn thing and keep it on, since Eggman don't have that power anymore, yeah, I believe it's still in space, but deactivated.

The social media have been hinting a lot at Knuckles and the Master Emerald recently. It has to mean something... or not? Let's take a look at more cluuues!

I meant having him as a hidden little easter egg. Kinda like Rosalina in Mario 3D World or Amy in Advance 2. You wouldn't really know he's in the game until you unlock him.

I'm not expecting him to be in it, but I feel it would be pretty neat if he was.

Any one else think it would be pretty cool if Modern Sonic was a hidden unlockable character in the game, and he would have his moves for the Boost games? I know it's super unlikely that would happen, but I feel it would be a neat addiction.

Whilst I'm not expecting Modern Sonic or any other references to the modern games from Adventure onwards to be included, I can see the original Sonic 1 and maybe Sonic 2 & Sonic 3 sprites being unlockable. Taxman recently hinted on Twitter (in response to a question) that he's very fond of debug-mode. So I fully expect there to be a debug-mode in Mania which again would be a nice throw-back to the classics.

Heading into dream-territory here; I'd love it if Mania has a "Super Mario Maker" feature. Design your own Sonic Mania stages.....

Just you watch, the Sonic Twitter account is going to announce on Mania's April 1 release date Big's Big Fishing Adventure 3 & Knuckles Featuring Dante from the Devil May Cry series.

On a more serious note, I also got June 2nd as the launch date for the collectors edition when I ordered it. So April 1 might just be the Steam/PSN/Xbox Live release.

Here's to that great idea!

That would totally make my day. Sonic 3 sprites will always be my favourite.

Please, TaxStealth.

Yeah I'd love to see another new and remixed zone so I know the level of quality we've seen so far will definitely be across the whole game. 

(Admittedly I also want another Tee Lopes song to listen to on my phone :P )

It can be like the costume room in Rayman Legends where you jump in these paintings and the costume will change. I can totally see this happen!

Just thinking...

Considering when the game is due for release and how long ago it got announced, are we not due some new gameplay or some kind of press event or some new show off of the game soon?

 

I suppose it won't be at the PS Experience since it's Sony exclusives only... right?? We might get more gameplays and trailer in upcoming gaming events.

There's the Portland Retrogaming Expo 2016, which would make perfect sense to have Mania...

PAX Australia 2016, Taxman is australian lol

Destiny is not a Playstation exclusive and was shown off at the Playstation Experience back in 2015.

Don't immediately expect Sonic Mania to not appear in the Playstation Experience event, just because it's not a PS4 exclusive, since non-Playstation exclusives can be shown off there.

Anyways, not really expecting any new footage until by the end of the year, so I'm just gonna have to be patient.

So...

Did you guys, erm, saw this?

BECAUSE THESE NEEDS TO BE ZONES IN MANIA OHMYGAWD. That kind of ice zone trope is exactly what I've suggested years ago here in a topic about "which tropes would you like to see in the next Sonic games?". At night, with these village-like lamposts. Damn. Also, freaking ghost zone!

A speculative guess is that, it feels like there could be between one new reveal cycle before the end of the year, and up to as many as three.  ^_^:)  

It is hard to tell how much will be revealed before the release window is close; where at that point different articles may be dispersing many sorts of details about the review copies that would be available to them.

It's hard to say, Honestly. Aaron said a couple weeks back that it would be a "little while" before we got something new. That's so vague that it's impossible to say how much time that could possibly mean.

Ice Cap Night zone would be really cool.

Yeah, I wouldn't long for more stuff until December at least. 

To keep the hype, I'm currently playing retro games only (Super Nintendo and Mega Drive games) XD My next goal is to get a retro controller to enhance the experience.

It's been years since a main series Sonic game was announced a year prior to its release, so it's kinda hard to assume when new info about the game will be posted. I have a hunch we may get some new stuff in November and December, and then maybe a final round of information in February-April prior to release (depending on when Mania is actually released).

Aside from a look at new zones, I also want to see Tails and Knuckles in action. Namely for their new sprites (I'd be surprised if they didn't get new sprites that match Mania's artstyle) as well as if they, like Sonic, also got any new abilities. But more importantly I want to know more about the game itself in terms of story, gameplay modes / content, and development. Multiplayer? Any non-playable characters that play a role in the story? How the game got off the ground? Materials like that among others.
