Guys, if it's called "Plus", it's going to include the Space Cadet Pinball and some screensavers.
(I wonder how many people are old enough to get the reference)

It would actually fit the "let's use things created by fans" route that Sega took with Sonic Mania, they could use MainMemory's screensaver and call it a day. Besides, you know, I actually meant this post to be a joke, but while I was typing I realised that they could totally pull a Space Cadet Spinball and troll everyone. The Retro Engine already supports Puyo Puyo apparently, adding support for Spinball is more likely than you'd think.

I actually laughed so hard at this, my girlfriend looked at me weird. No regrets.

Yeah Sonic Mania doing so well in the ResetERA awards is lovely to see. Keep in mind that ResetERA is essentially the ex-NeoGAF userbase and they were super negative about Sonic for years, with Mania being the first Sonic game they warmed up to in forever, so Mania's high placement speaks volumes as to the astounding quality of the game.

As for all this Project Plus speculation, it could just be the remasters included, but I'm still predicting it'll be a re-release with more content. Just a hunch. Hope news comes and the mystery is solved soon.

So I know there's an element of "who gives a fuck" since it's NeoGAF and that place is doomed and on its way out as a gaming destination and has been replaced by ResetERA, which is where almost the entirety of the ex-NeoGAF community now resides, but Sonic Mania placed highly in NeoGAF's GOTY results too for those interested:

Overall GOTY: Sonic Mania #19
Best plaformer: Sonic Mania #3
Best multi-platform game: Sonic Mania #1

Of note is that Sonic Mania is dominating all these end of the year GOTY awards across the gaming spectrum placing highly almost everywhere, mirroring its absolutely glowing critical reception upon release. Then you have its "multiple millions" of sales and it's clear that Mania is the best reviewed, most highly awarded, best selling Sonic game since probably the Genesis days.

Lovely to see the game doing so well. Sega are crazy not to green light a sequel or continue Mania in some form. Hope Sega and Sonic Team are taking notes.
