    This is LONG overdue but I'm so thankful it's finally happening!

    Is it going to be a wide release?

    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.

    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.

    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
    Amazing
    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.

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

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