I do hope that as part of the changes and additions to this, they make sure every single zone has a cutscene at the end. It just looked so off when some got cutscenes whilst others just faded to black after the results screen.

Well I didn't expect this. The additional content is a wise decision to give it a unique selling point.

I was surprised to see new characters added over new stages. I hope that their play styles fit well with the existing levels. That being said, I'm very excited.

Honestly the only thing I want from new game mode is actual bonus stages. Put Blue spheres in extra content or something. Also level transitions would be nice

No pics, but they specifically mentioned it in their presentation.

A new version of Mania with extra content and a new physical release sounds fantastic.

Summer runs from 21st June to 23rd September, so could be a long wait, but well worth the wait!

As for playable Mighty and Ray. So awesome!

There's five Sonic Mania Adventures shorts coming out each month up to the release of Mania Plus, so it's safe to assume we'll be seeing Mania Plus in August.

I genuinely wonder if there won't be an extra zone or two in Encore Mode. Considering that they needed to reveal HALF of the game's zones for marketing, it'd make sense if they didn't want to spoil ANY new content if there was only one or two new pieces.

Here's hoping that Encore Mode will be more like their original plans for the Phantom Heavies and Egg Reverie. That's my number one hope - that they get to achieve in Encore Mode any things that they couldn't before.

and missing zone transitions

I am genuinely surprised they didn't go with the more obvious Amy choice. I wonder what moves they'll get to distinguish them.

Since it doesn't look like PC is getting a physical copy, I guess I'm buying the Switch version. I can get an art book, and at least play it at my brother's place when babysitting my nephew.

I'll be buying the Switch version physically despite owning it digitally, and the upgrade for my PC copy (collector's edition).
This on top of the 5 other times I bought it for various friends.
And the vinyl.
And the digital selected soundtrack.

...I like this game too much.

...I should go play it again.

Sonic Mania Plus is exciting news. As I said in the SXSW thread I'll be buying the physical version (with a Megadrive reversible cover!) so hard. One thing that's notable is that I could have sworn I heard them say something about "additional cutscenes" when talking about Encore Mode. First thing I thought of is the restoration of the missing level transitions? They also said Encore Mode will be "remixes" of the stages with additional and alternative routes which is fucking awesome. Sounds as though they're significantly expanding the game. It's basically getting a "remix" mode.

So this must be why Taxman and Stealth have been so quiet as of late. They'll evidently be working hard on Sonic Mania Plus all the way until the Summer. Hoping for a new stage or two!

Does that mean the PC version might get a Steam DLC version of this? If no physical release for the PC, I'd be equally happy with that.

I'm curious to what a Super Ray and a Super Mighty is going to look like? Probably not that much different to a Super Knux-style imagine (though this isn't usually the first thing that springs into one's head when thinking "new characters", lol :p).
