    Really cool that they brought back two of the deadest characters from the Sonic franchise.

    ... I still would've preferred playable classic Amy but I'll take what I can get.

    Glad I still haven’t bought it, but hoping they also add checkpoints to the game.

    Honestly, 4 player competitive mode might actually look better.

    Fucking tits, every goddamn time I say to myself "Oh, well, this isn't getting a physical release, I guess I can force myself to buy digital" a physical release pops up later on.

    #38 in again. Might get Amy and Metal down the road someday either in mania or the sequel. Wonder what kind of gameplay hooks those guys will offer

    OP says December 2018, others say summer. Which is correct? Also, glad I held out for the physical release.

    Encore Mode...hmmm interesting.

    It includes more than the base game and is more expensive than the base game so no, I don't think it will be or should be.
    Can I combine with my save files on base Sonic Mania though?

    Ray and Mighty holy shit lol
    Day 1 for physical release

    Octopath Traveler, Crash Trilogy, Captain Toad, YS VIII and now the physical release of Sonic Mania: there aree too many interesting (at least for me) Switch games in summer and not so much time until the end of July.

    No PC physical release?
  48. Kinsei

    Mighty is from Knuckles Chaotix and Ray is from a Japan only arcade game called SegaSonic the Hedgehog (Yes, SegaSonic is one word).

    Rays design is creeping me OUT. He looks like Sonic fused with Tails.

    Not double dipping on a game that should've had a physical release from the getgo.
