    I find the magically appearing pillars (draw distance) a bit annoying. Probably wouldn't notice in game though.

    In Sonic 3 the more time you spent trying to the Chaos Emerald it speeded up I'm just going on assumption that it will be the same

    Special Stages look pretty cool, Sonic's model resembles the one he had on the Saturn (particularly, during the Special Stages in Sonic 3D Blast and in Sonic Jam). While I'm not particularly a fan of the S3&K Special Stages (more partial to those found in Sonic CD and Knuckles' Chaotix), bringing them back as Bonus Stages is a nice touch.

    I have this almost Pavlovian reaction to the Sonic 3 style Bonus Levels in the trailer, I feel my whole body turning to the left in
    a frenetic QTE fashion when I see Sonic approaching the corner of a grid of blue balls. You know, gotta get those rings and fast, before the the speed becomes unbearable.

    Hours of Blue Sphere have prepared me for this.

    Sonic 4... Sonic Mania just keeps on getting better every f-ing time! : D

    I really like that they threw in Saturn Sonic to the mix.

    Because we had such a compelling homebrew scene for the Switch, right? We won't see anything for a long time anyways, may as well update.

    Sonic Forces has been nothing but cringe and sheer disappointment. Sonic mania, is nothing but amazement. I will definitely get this game. There's so much love, and effort put into this game. This has to be one of the best classic styled Sonic games to date.

    Well only if you don't have any of the other platforms the game is released on or need to play out of your WiFi range on Switch at any cost...
    Update may be vital for console exclusives: Zelda DLC, Mario + Rabbids, Splat8n 2. Not for something every fridge is getting and you can stream to Switch via REMx.
