At SXSW, Sega announced that Sonic Mania has been delayed from Spring until Summer. The game still lacks a firm release date, only working with a vague release window. Sonic Mania is a platformer by Headcannon and PagodaWest Games that uses the visual style of the original Sega Genesis games, but with a mix of classic and all-new levels. Sonic Mania is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Sega showed off the Flying Battery Zone at SXSW, a set of stages that originally appeared in Sonic & Knuckles.
Sega has revealed the next Sonic game, which looks back for inspiration.
During the same panel, Sega also revealed that Project Sonic 2017 finally has a full title: Sonic Forces. A brief gameplay video shown at the panel looked like a modern sequel to Sonic Adventure, with Sonic running at high-speed through a city under attack. Sega will be showing more from the game today. Sonic Forces is scheduled to launch in 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
