Sonic Mania Plus spin dashes to a July 17 release

Sega announced today that Sonic Mania Plus will come out on July 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

This enhanced version of last year’s retro side-scroller adds Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel as playable characters. Plus will also include a four-player Competition Mode, an Encore Mode that will remix the game’s stages, and other features. The original version of Sonic Mania sold over 1 million copies. It’s also the best-reviewed Sonic games in years, following almost two decades of mediocrity for the franchise.

Sonic Mania Plus will be available as a separate game or as an upgrade you can buy for the original.

Mighty and Ray debuted in the obscure SegaSonic the Hedgehog, a 1993 trackball-controlled arcade game that never left Japan. Ray hasn’t been playable in a Sonic game since, although Mighty had an appearance in 1995’s Knuckles Chaotix.
