We played Sonic Mania, and now we’re going to tell you what we think! In this SEGA News Bits, George and I (Barry) rest our aching feet just hours after the Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Party in San Diego to share our reaction to the Sonic Mania reveal and give our thoughts on how the game plays. Do we have another Sonic 4 on our hands or is Sonic Mania the true successor to Sonic 3 & Knuckles? The answers are obviously “nope!” and “hell yes!” in that order.
Special thanks to Neo Hazard for letting us use his footage, you can check out his channel here! Also, thanks to Bartman for being the one to play the game in our footage. You can find Bartman’s YouTube channel here!

Everything about this game feels perfect so far.
It looks perfect. I have possibly never been this excited for a game ever.
This is a little off topic, but why is no one talking about the fact that in Sonic 2017 trailer, three blocks are thrown at Sonic – first a blue one, then a yellow one, then a red one (seriously, rewatch the trailer). A blatant hint to three playable characters, possibly all with classic forms…?
Maybe the events of Mania lead to Project 2017?
