Sonic Mania Animated Intro is Joyfully Nostalgic

Sonic Mania Animated Intro is Joyfully Nostalgic”

Unlike the upcoming Sonic Forces, Sonic Mania is an old-school return to the retro 2D platforming of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Despite being the most interesting thing to happen to Sonic in decades, the game is for some reason download-only.

This animation was animated and directed by Tyson Hesse, with custom music by Hyper Potions. This was definitely a gift, especially for those who grew up playing these games in the 90s.

This all-new experience celebrates the best of Classic Sonic, pushing the envelope forward with stunning 60 FPS gameplay and pixel-perfect physics.

A brand new trailer highlighting the competition mode has also been released which you can see below.

That's not to say you won't enjoy it no matter when or why you joined the Sonic fandom, but this video should definitely speak most clearly to those old enough to remember plugging cartridges into other cartridges so they could play as Knuckles in Sonic 2. Welcome to the next level for the world's fastest blue hedgehog.

Sonic Mania isn't supposed to be released until next Tuesday, but people that ordered the super expensive (and super cool) Collector's Edition have already received download codes that works. Sonic and friends also take on their appearances from this era, as opposed to their "modern" or Sonic Boom iterations.

Sonic Mania releases on August 15th for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
