A huge bombshell just got dropped for Sonic Mania! We got a brand new trailer showing off the brand new Special Stages, as well as the Special Stages from Sonic 3 & Knuckles making a comeback! Not only did we get this, we also got a glimpse of Studiopolis Zone Act 2 and a brand new mode being the Time Attack mode! All of this and more is discussed in this video today! Sonic Mania releases on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on August 15th!

In the comments below let us know what you think of the Sonic Mania instruction manual and should there be a physical release for this game already? Feels like Sonic Mania has everything released physically besides the actual game, right?
