Sonic Mania hitting Nintendo Switch day one, won’t cost more

It seems a trend for Nintendo Switch games is to cost slightly more on the platform, what with Puyo Puyo Tetris costing ten dollars more physically compared to the PlayStation 4 (and yes, I know it comes with a key chain). But Nintendo fans looking forward to Sonic Mania need not fear, since the game has been confirmed to hit the Nintendo Switch the same day as other platforms and cost the same. Woot.

The news has been confirmed by SEGA and Sonic the Hedgehog social media meme master Aaron Webber during a interview with Nintendo Everything. Sadly SEGA has been mute on the release date for Sonic Mania, but we may soon find out more news concerning it since the SXSW 2017 Sonic the Hedgehog panel will happen in two days.

How many of you will be picking up Sonic Mania on the Nintendo Switch? What do you think about the news of it being priced the same as other versions? Let us know in the comments below.

    If there is a physical version for Switch, I’d buy it even if it costed twenty dollars more than PS4/x1 version.

    I honestly can’t wait to get this game.

    Don’t see what it so special Sonic on a Nintendo console, it still seems vaguely strange maybe but it isn’t novel anymore. And Nintendo hardware is usually underpowered and censored so this version will probably be inferior to the X1/PS4 releases.

      Though as it will remain priced competitively with it’s other releases on the more powered platforms, is this on Sega’s part?
      It will probably mean stronger sales for a Switch title just due to being a cheaper Switch release.

      Yeah inferior, but you can play it on the go so that’s a plus too (for gamers who loves playing handheld).
