Sonic Mania Comes to Nintendo Switch

Sega has confirmed that Sonic Mania is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

The throwback follow-up to their ongoing franchise is described as an entirely new game, players will be able to choose between Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. There’s also new zones, and a new drop dash ability. There will also be classic levels, however they will be reimagined.

Sonic Mania is launching sometime this year across PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and now the Nintendo Switch.

    I’m pretty sure the other Sonic project is also coming to the Switch.

    Hot take: Mania is going to be GOTY 2017. Best post-Adventure Sonic game for that matter. I have faith in based Whitehead.

    This fanmade game is painfully ironic if you play it on the Switch.

    Looks like what “Sonic The Hedgehog 4” should have been. That was an abomination.

    Well if you wanted to play this with 3-4 different controllers you got it. I just want another sonic game before he started talking.

    That’s correct. It’s a contraction for “he has.”

    I’m gonna ask what I asked on the youtube comments. What happened to the developers logos? They had nice animations on the original trailer and here they just bounce…
