SEGA is releasing the original version of Sonic Mania physically to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Listings for all three appeared on GameStop’s website priced at $19.99 for a November 5, 2019 release (UPDATE: some stores are now carrying it). It does not appear that this release will have any bonuses, like an art book or a Mega Drive/Genesis reversible cover. The content from the Plus release is not on disc, though should be available as DLC at an additional price.
It’s possible SEGA is doing this to fill the void of no new Sonic game in stores this Christmas season, and is piggybacking off of the recently released Mega Drive/Genesis Mini. Mini consoles and a budget priced Sonic Mania would make for great holiday purchases. We’ll share more info as we hear it!
UPDATE: Readers have spotted this release at retail, specifically Walmart, priced at $19.93.
