At long last, the Sonic Mania trailer we have wanted is here!
The Sonic Mania trailer gives us some exciting, new stuff. It starts off with a cute little nod to an original character concept of Sonic as a rabbit that threw things with his ears. Then, in an animatic complete with peppy music, we see Sonic zip into action. After that, we see some gameplay.
Most of the gameplay is not new. We see our three playable characters run through Mirage Saloon, Studiopolis, Green Hill, and Flying Battery Zones. Halfway through the trailer, though, we see something new: the inclusion of Stardust Speedway Zone from Sonic CD. The trailer finishes with a reversion to the animatic style. Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles enter an elevator. When Sonic presses a button, we get the information we have really awaited: the release date of August 15, 2017.
Sonic Mania is also available for pre-order through the Sega website. Check out the Sonic Mania trailer on YouTube below!
