Sonic Mania Plus: Official Reveal (Coming July 17th) - NO SPOILERS

Recommended Posts

What worries me is the Mania crew are posting their credentials etc looking for more work, so Plus is obviously winding down. What I don't get is that Mania 2 needs to be a thing, if Sega doesn't green light it or sits around on their hands when it's been the highest rated game in 15 odd years, along with its stellar sales, they must be bloody brain dead.

Now that we have a separate topic for the PS4 update, please direct all discussions pertaining specifically to the leak to that topic. We'll keep this thread around for spoiler-free discussion and official announcements and updates regarding the title. Any posts that contain explicit mention of the leak's contents, even in spoiler tags, will be deleted after this point.

A bigger resume is a good thing.  anyone leaving college knows this. As it woild show they can hold thier own in more than just 2d sonic. They probably would like to try their hands at new products while also helping on 2d sonic on the side going forward.  I'm sure segas not blind to this but I don't expect mania 2 till next year around spring or summer AT the earliest.   Sega does like strecting out releases these days

I was honestly more worried about this being the outcome roughly a month ago. The fact that Mania Plus --in regards to the DLC and the retail release-- and the Mania Adventures miniseries exist at all (and with additional studios brought in for both projects to boot) does prompt me to believe that Sega actually does see value in continuing the Genesis direction that Mania brought back.

In light of that, I'd like to assume that as of now, Sega are allowing the Mania staff to work on other/personal projects, while still having them on speed dial for when they're ready to greenlight another Genesis Sonic project in the future. I've said it before that if Sega's going to make a Mania followup; I'd prefer they wait a few years and allow the formula to rest, as opposed to just quickly churning out new installments and subsequently overexposing the playstyle. It also goes without saying that you'll have to wait a few years if you want a genuinely fresh sequel in regards to original content and/or expanded project scope as it is anyway; as opposed to a straight Mania 2. IMO, I wouldn't start asking Sega about a Mania sequel until 2020 at the earliest.

I see Aaron Webber has reacted to what’s happened. The guy is such a professional. He literally just advised everyon to keep clear of spoilers and wait for the official release bless him.

Encore mode is supposed to be the meat of the DLC, so I'll be satisfied if it has:

- Separate cutscenes/campaign for Knuckles/Mighty & Ray

- New aesthetic for existing zones

- Different and harder level design

Sadly, while I'm expecting this, it's likely gonna be just 3-4 zones, so basically a short game.

Will our saves carry over or will I need  to get the emeralds on a new playthrough to see new stuff I wonder?

Considering that save files weren't affected by the accidental patch, I'm pretty sure they'll carry over if you buy the Mania Plus DLC.

@TheOcelotsaid in a status update yesterday that it doesn't overwrite your previous saves. I was more concerned about doing the gold medals in blue sphere all over again. I think i'd actually cry.

I don't think it's a mystery, so much as that no company sets its entire publicity schedule and marketing campaign out in the open for all to see.  In all likelihood everything is subject to some degree of change.

I'm curious as to what Encore mode will be. I'm obviously excited for Mighty and Ray, although I do think they could have used far more interesting characters, but it's Encore Mode what has me hyped.

Hmm I wonder if the new trailer will arrive before, at the same time or after the second Mania Adventures episode. I'm assuming based on the time frame of the last episodes release that the next Adventures episode will likely drop on Saturday here, Friday American time.
