Sega released a new trailer today for the definitive version of Sonic Mania, which will retail for roughly $40 CAD when it launches.

The Plus edition will feature two new characters, Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel, as well as an Encore mode that brings new challenges and layouts to familiar levels, also, Time Attack mode will receive an update allowing four-player competitions and ghost challenges. This is all bundled up in a new physical edition of the game which features a 32-page artbook, a classic Genesis cover, and holographic packaging.

I reviewed Sonic Mania, and couldn’t stop raving about how good playing it felt, it was a return to form for classic Sonic and definitely one of my favourite Sonic titles, ever.
