Sonic Mania goes back to the basics in a gameplay video

Sonic, Tails and Knuckles are back, and ennemies are still too slow!

More than 25 years after we’ve put our hands on Sonic the Hedgehog, our beloved super-fast hero is coming back with his friends in an old style adventure. This side-scrolling sequel is called Sonic Mania, and it goes back to the basics. Say bye bye to the next gen graphics, this one will be based on the gameplay and 2D visual style of the original Sonic the Hedgehog on SEGA Genesis. But it won’t be a remake.

Sonic Mania will feature Sonic (duh), Tales and Knuckles, in a mix of totally new levels and old “remade” levels. Let’s have a first look at them. The Youtube channel of Sonic the Hedgehog shared today two new gameplay videos of the famous Green Hill Zone Act2. One with audio commentary from the Sonic Team, and one without (see below).

Sonic Mania is set to release on Nintendo Switch in Q2 2017.
