Sonic Mania, new 2D sidescrolling Sonic game (Switch/PS4/XB1/PC)

Postby nem » July 23rd, 2016, 11:42 am

For the first time since the original Sonic Adventure on Dreamcast, I'm pretty excited for a Sonic game. Christian Whitehead, or Taxman as you might know him, is the fella behind the great ports of Sonic 2 and Sonic CD on XBLA. He with the help of others is working on this new game, however, Sonic Team nor Dimps have no hands in this!

This does look very nice. Hopefully it lives up the trailer.

Really really really glad they are using the old style graphics, that slim Sonic with the attitude never settled well with me :lol:
I hope they don't screw up the platforming, the game looks promising!

Slick trailer, looking forward to this game. Last Sonic game I was stoked about was Sonic Generations. Unfortunately, I never got to finish it. Might try doing that here soon.

I'm tempted to trawl Gumtree for a 16:9 Sony or Panny. Don't suppose getting RGB Scart from todays consoles is easy though.

Yep. when it says "multiformat" on the upper right corner you are usually good to go. i would personally check again though if the crt really does component just to be sure.
generally it seems to be a little more difficult to track one down in europe than in the us.

Zelda is tempting me to get a Switch, Sonic has just confirmed that I will definitely be getting a Switch :awe:

I'd like to play this on a crt or SD plasma too. Shame my Sony crt doesn't have anything other than a scart input. I wonder how bad it'll look with a hdmi --> vga adaptor cable going into the Plasma? Or maybe just to let an amp take care of hdmi --> component :think:

So, looking incredible and out next week. Which console will download the pre-order now or in my sleep on release day, because that's the one I'm buying.

I've only played up to the end of Flying Battery 1 so far but this looks like it could be the game we've been waiting 20 years for.
