Sonic Mania is to get a collector’s edition, full of 90’s nostalgia and Sega have announced it will be available in both North America and Europe. Fans of the speedy blue hedgehog can pre-order the collector’s edition now, exclusively through Amazon in the UK, France, Germany and Spain.
The collector’s edition includes a plethora of goodies for those who want a little extra. The pack will come a 12 inch Sonic figure standing on top of a replica Mega Drive that makes the Sega start up sound when the power button is flipped and a Sega cartridge cast with a golden ring. A metal collectors card is also included as well as a code to download the game, all packaged in a retro 90’s style box. This will all come at the cost of £79.99/$97 and can be pre-ordered now ahead of the games Spring 2017 release.
In lieu of the games release, Sega have created a comical TV spot, made to look like a 90’s commercial.
For those unaware of what Sonic Mania actually is, Sega have described it as a ‘brand new classic experience.’ It is a 2D sonic in the style of his first releases with players taking control of Tails, Knuckles and of course, the iconic blue hedgehog. Gameplay will be fast and frantic like the originals and will include all new zones as well as re-imagined versions of classic areas with hidden paths and secrets.
