Sonic Mania is the newest Sonic game in the franchise and as per usual these days it is receiving a Collector’s Edition. However the trailer for this Collector’s Edition is no usual trailer. Sega have gone with a 90’s infomercial throwback theme for their latest trailer and it’s great for a laugh.
The Collectors Edition will include:
- Deluxe “SEGA Genesis” style Collector’s Box
- 12″ Classic Sonic Statue featuring SEGA Genesis Base
- Flip the power switch to trigger the “SEEGAA” startup audio!
- Metallic Collector’s Card with Sonic Mania Download Code (digital game code)
- SEGA Cartridge Cast with Golden Ring
Strangely the game is only available as a digital download instead of a physical disc but apart from that all the other goodies seem pretty cool. The Collector’s Edition will retail for $69.95 US with the game alone expected to cost $19.95.
Sonic Mania, and is a 2D side-scrolling platformer with graphics reminiscent of the original titles on the Sega Genesis. It will feature Sonic, Tails and Knuckles as playable characters as well as completely brand new 2D levels featuring remixes of levels from classic zones as well as all new ones.
