Sonic Mania Plus is the definitive edition of 2017's Sonic Mania
It is out on July 17
There's a physical edition as well
Sonic Mania gets a definitive release called Sonic Mania Plus for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Sonic Mania Plus’ price is $30 internationally with no India price announced at the moment. The Sonic Mania Plus release date is July 17. It comes with additional content that wasn’t included with Sonic Mania. These are an Encore Mode with remixed states, four-player Competition Mode, and two new playable characters, Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel. Sonic Mania’s Competition and Time Attack modes will get an update for four player competitions and ghost challenges.
A Sonic Mania Plus physical edition is on the way as well. It has a 32-page collector’s art book, holographic packaging, and a reversible Sega Genesis cover. It is also priced at $30. Right now there’s no information on whether Sonic Mania Plus makes it to India or not. Given the success of the game, we won’t be surprised to see it get an India release.
If you already own Sonic Mania, you can upgrade to Sonic Mania Plus digitally for $5 on Steam, PS Store, Microsoft Store, and Nintendo eShop for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch respectively.
In our review of Sonic Mania, we stated that Sega got a lot right with this game. From level design, to the art and music, we have a Sonic game that does justice to the iconic character and the franchise. And Sonic Mania Plus could very well improve on this.
