SEGA has announced a new Sonic Mania feature that many classic fans are sure to love: Competition Mode! Players will be able to take on their friends as Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles with the winner determined by different factors: clear time, score, number of items acquired, number of rings acquired when clearing the level, and total number of rings acquired throughout the level. Rules can be adjusted via changing the available items in item boxes and the number of rounds.
Update: It is incredibly probably very likely that the announcer is Takenobu Mitsuyoshi.
Check out the mode in the video above, and after the break check out screenshots of the Competition Mode menu.
