Sonic Mania Price and Release Date Finally Officially Confirmed

Sonic Mania is one of two upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog games coming from SEGA in 2017, and arguably the one that retro gaming fans and those who grew up with Sonic are looking forward to the most.

Sonic Mania is Sega's best chance at truly recapturing the magic that was seen in the 2D Sonic classics.

Sega's Sonic Mania is due out later this year- we know it's due by the end of the Summer, and apparently it's out in August according to a rumor we reported on yesterday.
