PC Version Of Sonic Mania Delayed

Sonic Mania Opening Released Early After Unauthorised Streams

From a Sonic livestream today from the Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube channel players were told that the PC version of Sonic Mania was delayed - the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions are still on course for 15th August. Check out the clip, which features a bunch of classic Sonic goodness set to the music of Hyper Potions, below. There have been odd diamonds in the rough, but there have been an terrible lot of lacklustre Sonic games over the years.

Sonic Mania will finally release next week for console owners. The '90s were a wonderful time for our favorite spiny speed demon, and the magical feeling his games gave to kids of all ages has been expertly captured and portrayed in the Sonic Mania opening animation. A lot of Sonic fans are looking forward to Sonic Mania, so we'll see in just a few short days if it lives up to the excitement. Gone are the long legs and slender waistline of more modern Sonics. The game was originally meant to be released next week, on August 15th.

The reason given for the delay is the development team's desire to polish and optimize the game- presumably, they are unhappy with its quality right now and feel like it can be given one final push over the next two weeks.
