A new trailer just came out.

Seeing Knuckles and Mighty at the end kinda warms my heart.

It was also announced that it was going to cost $5.00 to people who own the original game. Definitely not a bad price! I’ve been playing the game on PC, I’m tempted to get the physical Switch version though. Double dipping on Sonic games is nothing new to me, I have 7 copy’s of Sonic 2.

It got delivered today!
They have put in extra card board to make it the size of a blueray box.
Then opened the case and found what i thought was a manual. But no its just support information.

I ordered it today. The whole shebang for 25 Euro, on card. Not bad heh! Hopefully I get it soon. The site I wanted to order at suddenly didn't have it anymore, so I ordered it elsewhere. Fingers crossed!



I am very disappointed with Encore/Plus DLC. Angel Island Zone is soooo short, I hoped to see a full Angel Island Zone!

The new characters are fun, though.



Collecting blue spheres I don't know if its age or what but man I'm finding that annoying awkward controls have not aged well. The other bonus rounds are cool though. Mighty is pretty cool though.

I can see why people are calling this the best 2D Mario game ever made though it has a lot going for it.



Sorry for reviving an old topic.
I'm currently at my first playthrough and like it so far, even if I don't get all the references, I've never played Sonic CD. But especially due to the references I think it's better to have played the original Mega Drive (and maybe even Master System) games first before playing Mania.
The best thing so far is how they remixed the music in the 2nd acts of the original zones. Unfortunately I still can't grasp the purpose of the encore mode.
When it comes to the competition mode I'll probably try that this evening. If it is similar to the one in Sonic 2 minus the performance problems I'd be more than happy.
