Check Out the First Episode of the Sonic Mania Adventure Mini Cartoon

The first in a five-part series.

The first Sonic Mania Adventure mini cartoons has been posted on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account. You can check out the first part below.

The first part of Sonic Mania Adventures is a cute, wordless showdown between Sonic and Eggman, with all the classic hijinks that comes with their little battles. However, there are some little bits that tease where the future episodes will go, including some mystery behind where the chaos emeralds might be hiding. Also be sure to stay after the credits for a bonus scene.

The five-part animated miniseries was announced during a Sonic panel at SXSW this year. The series is being done by the same creative team behind that gorgeous animated Sonic Mania trailer from last year, and promised to be a short, fun Sonic adventure in-line with the tone set by Mania.

Also announced at the SXSW Sonic panel was Sonic Mania Encore, a new enhanced version of the hit Sonic game complete with new modes and two new characters: Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel. Sonic Mania Encore will be available in either a physical collector's edition, or as a DLC upgrade for players who already own the digital version.
