Over at the San Diego Comic-Con, SEGA revealed another Sonic game alongside the previously announced title scheduled to release in 2017.
The newly announced title is Sonic Mania, which is a 2D platforming “high-speed adventure” in which players will experience new zones alongside “remixed classic levels with Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles.” The title is being developed in collaboration with Christian Whitehead, Headcannon, and PagodaWest Games. Check out its debut trailer below.
According to Sonic Team boss, Takashi Iizuka, Sonic Mania was born out of fans’ love for classic Sonic 2D platformers.
Next up is the tentatively titled Project Sonic 2017, which we were previously told is a “completely new game.” Not much was said about it, however, but SEGA released the following trailer. A description that accompanies the video states, “When things look their darkest, even heroes need a helping hand.”
Both titles are scheduled to release in 2017, with Sonic Mania scheduled for a Spring release and Project Sonic scheduled for the holiday season. While Sonic Mania is set for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Project Sonic will be heading to Nintendo NX alongside PS4 and Xbox One.
Further details will be revealed at a later time.
