New Infomercial for Sonic Mania Plus Overflows With Nostalgia

Sega has shared a new infomercial for Sonic Mania Plus ahead of the game’s release tomorrow.

Featured above, the new infomercial is a total nostalgic throwback to the very-real Sega Genesis commercial from the 1990’s, where a salesman tried to sell the consumer on the then-more expensive Super Nintendo and Super Mario World – over the cheaper Sega Genesis and Sonic the Hedgehog. I’ll let you guys debate which console/flagship game was/is better.

Sonic Mania is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our review for Sonic Mania here (we absolutely love and recommend the game!). Sonic Mania Plus is set to release for the same systems on July 17th, 2018.
