Welcome to a new SEGA News Bits, now that the SXSW Sonic the Hedgehog panel has passed we sit down and discuss what we learned regarding Sonic Mania.

So all you Sonic Maniacs tune in and what are your opinions on all the new Sonic Mania news? Let us know in the comments below.
Sonic Forces is the new name for Project Sonic 2017, the next big budget Sonic the Hedgehog game by Sonic Team. While we know its coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC and newly announced for Nintendo Switch. The reason that showing off Sonic Forces’ gameplay is important is because of the difference in gameplay between the consoles. Sonic Force’s is also running on a new game engine, an evolution of the old engine they used. The new engine is being titled ‘Hedgehog Engine 2’.
So now we can see a sneak peek at Sonic Forces gameplay and you can judge for yourself. What do you think of Sonic Forces gameplay? Let us know in the comments below. They warned that this is a work in progress and the game play can change in the final product.
Sonic Mania release date has been moved to Summer 2017, it has been revealed in the SXSW panel. While its not an exact Sonic Mania release date, it is postponed and the reason was to get more time to develop the game. While it sucks that we won’t be getting the game during the spring time, at least SEGA is delaying games to make them a more complete package.
Another thing that SEGA did was tease a Sonic Mania vinyl. He said he wanted to gauge the community and see if its something they want. Seeing the response on the SXSW stream and the fact that they already had mockups (below), i’d say its pretty much confirmed that there will be a Sonic Mania vinyl. As for the game’s digital price point, SEGA isn’t ready to reveal that. Will it be more than $15? Time will tell.
