    Coming right from a panel at Comic Con, is SEGA's latest Sonic game. It'll be developed by Christian Whitehead, the man behind the mobile ports of Sonic 1, 2 and CD. Titled Sonic Mania, it's set to release on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms in Spring 2017. According to the trailer, it appears to be a return to classic 2D form for the series. There's special stages, 3 playable characters (Sonic, Tails and Knuckles), and old school Genesis era graphics.

    :arrow: You can find a little bit of footage: HERE

    Nice. Now all they have to do is also Sonic Adventure 3 properly and they are set back in the right path.

    Looks good they will most likely have my money.
    It is done by the guy who made the Sonic CD update so it should be quality.

    And you still move too fast for the screen to show you what you need to react to.

    Nice work @Chary :toot:

    When i watched the trailer just now, I was excited to see this but then when the end came "SPRING 2017" I was disappointed. Apperently this is NOT THE SONIC 25 ANNIVERSARY GAME. I had hoped it was, but it seem like it isn't. Also no nintendo ports?? I am glad that the ps4 and Xbox one finally got a sonic game cause the only other sega game i know was yakuza 5 and i was wondering when will there be more sega games for PS4 and XBOX1?

    To be honest, I am excited for this game. :grog:
    but disappointed that is not the 25 anniversary game and that. i need to buy a ps4 or xbox one to play it on. :cry:

    Again, Nice work reporter Chary. Thanks for the notice on my page. :toot:
    (there is no accurate face here among these yellow circle looking pacman to describe what i feel properly)
    :hateit:

    Not bad. I was kind of hoping for a Sonic Generations 2, but whatever.
    I'll most likely pick this up anyways.

    So you don't have a PC or something? I'm sure this will run on a middle spec system. Nothing fancy.

    Of course i have a pc... that i need to upgrade. I just don't use it as a major gaming platform, mostly for exclusives you can't get anywhere else like super house of dead ninjas :P . I rather not deal with settings of optimizations that require updated hardware to use especially if it cost too much. :teach:

    Who said the game will be a disc format? Maybe is a download only, it look like a download kind of game. No one would put a game like that on disc. :glare:

    I hope :unsure:
    Maybe NX will get one :)

    But i had hoped for Wii u or 3ds at least one or the other. :(

    Is already lacking games and No i don't want mario sonic olympic adventures (I know is not called that)
    I want definite sonic game like Sonic 4 part 3 :creep:

    Where did you get the idea that the NX was cartridge based? Last I heard it was a rumor. That would make it hard for devs and people to port it

    Rather than a classic, I would like a 2D Sonic introducing new mechanics.
