Sonic Mania

Get ready to run this summer

Sega has announced that Sonic the Hedgehog's side-scrolling return, Sonic Mania, will be released for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch on August 15. The news of the delay was a bummer, but it's good to know when we will finally be able to get our hands on this game.

Sonic Mania is developed by Christian Whitehead, Headcannon, and PagodaWest Games in collaboration with Sonic Team.

Trump considers major staff shake-up to rein... 5:25 pm Sun
The talks would have taken place before Mr Trump assumed the presidency, when Mr Kushner was a private citizen. Mr Trump described news reports based on White House leaks as "fabricated lies made up by #FakeNews media".

President Trump on Sunday touted his first foreign trip, saying it brought "big results". Finally, he attended the G-7 Summit in Taormina, Italy.

It possibly says a lot about Sonic Mania being a grand celebration of Sonic the Hedgehog that even its mere pre-order trailer feels epic. That game will feature two different versions of Sonic similar to Sonic Generations, as well as allowing players to create their own character. Sega evidently released the information ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) because of a leak over the weekend.
