As we head towards the game’s release, Sonic Mania’s two newest characters take on Metal Sonic. And the fate of a chaos emerald is in the balance.
Sonic Mania returns
In today’s episode, Ray the Flying Squirrel is looking for his best friend, Mighty the Armadillo, but he can’t find him anywhere! After searching high and low, he hears something nearby. Could it be Mighty… or is it something far more dangerous? Find out what happens next in the fourth part of Sonic Mania Adventures now!
The fourth in a series of shorts from Sega and director Tyson Hesse, Sonic Mania Adventures fills in some gaps for fans. The videos tell the story of what’s been happening in Sonic’s turf, Angel Island, and have so far included a bunch of seres regulars. It’s set after the events of Mania and Sonic Forces, which is oddly specific. Sonic’s never really had what I’d call a cohesive “narrative”, but it certainly appears as though Sega is intent on making one.
All of this is leading into the launch of Sonic Mania Plus of course, which hits retail on July 17th. That’s a slight revamp of the neo-classic that arrived last year. This is the first real retail release for any version of the game, which sees the intro of both Mighty and Ray as playable characters.
