I thought this deserved its own thread. So Sonic Mania Plus isn't out yet, but a patch just hit on PS4 UK (and probably going to hit soon on other platforms and territories, the patch hit less than an hour ago) which has fixed and changed some long standing issues with the game. There's cutscene skipping now as a general update, and some slight changes to previous level design and areas, but there's three major things with this update I think most will gravitate towards: 01.) All the levels have cutscene transitions now to each other. Someone's been streaming the PS4 patch so here's some videos of the transitions if curious: Spoiler 02.) They actually took out and revamped one of the boss fights in the game and replaced it with a new take on the boss that's much more interesting. The rest of this boss is the same, they only changed the final phase of the fight. Spoilers, but here: https://clips.twitch.tv/PeacefulGrotesqueDadPMSTwin *SPOILERS* 03.) You can now use unlockable abilities like the Insta-Shield, Peel-Out, etc., on Save Game files and NOT just No Save Files now. --- UPDATE: 04.) Someone shared you can disable the time limit for stages from the options menu in this update as well. --- There might be other changes, but the first one especially has been a long critique of the game for many fans, so it's nice to see they put it in ahead of Mania Plus' release. Also apparently Mania Plus is done with production, some staff apparently finished up all of their work yesterday and seems it's done, just to see when it's released now.
