SEGA will release two new Sonic games next year for consoles and PC, as announced at Sonic's 25th anniversary celebrations this weekend.
Sonic Mania: revisits the 2D world of platforming with pixel-style art and gameplay based on Zones and Acts from Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD and Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles. There will also be new zones and bosses.
"Sonic Mania was born out of our fans' love of the classic Sonic 2D platform games," said Takashi Iizuka, Head of Sonic Team. "This type of collaboration is a first for SEGA and we hope everyone will be both surprised and delighted by this title. Sonic Mania has been a passion project for the entire team and we look forward to sharing more details about it later this year. Having the game actually playable at the event itself tonight was testament to the dedication of the team behind it."
The other title is a completely new game by the Sonic Team Title which will release holiday season 2017, although there's not a lot to go on for that one other than a new trailer.
