A new 2D Sonic The Hedgehog game was announced this past weekend during Sonic’s 25th Anniversary Party. The new game which is called Sonic Mania is being developed by PagodaWest Games and Headcannon studios.

Sonic Mania will feature remixed levels from the original Genesis games and brand new levels all while keeping with the visual style of classic Sonic from the Sega Genesis era. You can see the game in motion in the trailer below and if you want to watch the Sonic 25th Anniversary party stream the archive should still be available on the official Sonic Twitch Channel though be warned it is a rough watch sometimes.


Sonic Mania is currently slated for a Spring 2017 launch and will come to the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
