Sega's Sonic Mania has now sold over a million units globally, according to Famitsu.

The 2D platformer launched last year on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, and made up for the fact that the mainline 2017 Sonic title - Sonic Forces - wasn't very good.

Sega's having a second slice of the pie with Sonic Mania Plus, an updated version of the game which launches this summer. It includes two new playable characters in the form of Ray the Flying Squirrel and Mighty the Armadillo, and will be released both digitally and physically. A DLC pack will be made available for those who already own the original game, and will cost $4.99 / £3.99 to download.

Sega has also revealed the release date for Sonic Mania Plus. The game will launch on July 17th, and there's a new trailer to go along with this announcement.

Are you impressed by Sonic Mania's commercial performance? Do you think we could see more "classic" games of this type in the future, perhaps even as mainline Sonic instalments? Let us know with a comment.
