SEGA is currently hosting a special Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary party in San Diego, California. One of the first announcements coming out of the event is the brand-new 2D adventure, Sonic Mania. The game is being developed by Christian Whitehead, the man behind the modern-ports of the retro Sonic titles that are currently available across multiple platforms.
Check out the trailer:
The game looks strikingly similar to the several Sonic fan-games that are currently out there. Nevertheless, this is coming directly from SEGA and is being made under the direction of Sonic Team’s leader, Takashi Iizuka.
