One of the DLC highlights this year was the add-on content for the 2017 release Sonic Mania. The Plus version of the game added new characters, an encore mode and four-player split-screen.

As we begin to reflect on all the wonderful games released over the past year, the official Sonic The Hedgehog YouTube Channel has uploaded a new Sonic Mania Adventures episode. Part six is a holiday special, celebrating the spirit of giving and features Eggman, Metal Sonic, Amy and a brief cameo from Sonic.

Above is the full episode and below is the synopsis along with a message from the Sega team:

Metal Sonic and Eggman crash into the jungle after being defeated. Broken, abandoned and alone as seasons pass and the skies turn cold, a surprise appearance may change Metal Sonic’s fate forever.

We were so excited to work on this bonus holiday short of Sonic Mania Adventures for you all - a little something to celebrate the spirit of giving, and the kindness that can warm even the coldest of hearts.

Happy Holidays, from all of us at SEGA!
