    As long as it makes a better game, Im all for it.

    Id rather have something closer to sonic 3 in quality than Sonic 06.

    That said, it would be nice to have a publicly available demo.

    I wonder if no one here would be upset if LoZ: Breath of the Wild was delayed to this Winter instead so we could avoid paying for additional content. Unless they planned to have DLC for the game no matter what.

    That was really a "rubbish pile" or it's a placeholder? If second, shame on SEGA that puts placeholders in trailer.

    They can take as long as they want with my GOTY. Honestly, i wouldn't be surprised if it gets delayed further with the small amount of new information they showed on the stream last night.

    "meet quality standards"
    I can't help but laugh at that.

    On a serious note, I hope they put a lot of effort into this game. I can't wait to play it, and convert the soundtrack for NUS3BANK files of course.

    yea but a game like this, give it to a homebrew creator and bet theyll release it better.

    I'm not sure why people keep asking about a physical copy. Like, the collectors edition comes with a metal plate with the download code and they've been taking preorders since last year. If it was going to be physical, wouldn't they have already put the physical copy as part of the collectors edition? Doesn't make sense to me that the special copy would be digital and then they'd release a physical copy on the side? That would piss a lot of people off who have their preorders set (like me) and would love to switch to a physical copy. It just doesn't make sense for them to do physical.


    On the other hand, while I wanted it in the next few months, hopefully this will make sure the game is 100% ready to go and not need Day 1 Patches. I trust Christian Whitehead.

    This game is being developed by guys who literally used to make Sonic fangames.

    At least they are actually trying to ensure this game is good ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    I would rather wait for something good instead of seeing Sonic 06 again.

    @LuigiXHero Well I know Taxman and Stealth did the Sonic 1. 2. and CD port. I bought Sonic CD around Christmas last year and I love the constant 60FPS and all the bugs they fixed. I know they did some ROM hacks but that's what I know. I hope Sonic Mania becomes a great game.

    I knew there was something not right with the Sonic Mania's release date......before they announced that it was delayed.

    You have my deepest condolences; the game was overhyped and had issues from day one. Game should've been aborted IMO :lol:

    I think the gameplay trailer already proves it's better than Sonic 06

    Don't be too sad people; Christian Whitehead is a developer whom loves Quality; and I know if he has even more time, this game will be fantastic!

    Are you being sarcastic, or are you asking for tons of Temp users to flame-throw your ass?
    Just curious.

    If you're not being sarcastic, then this is my response:
