Ooh, great to see a first glimpse of Mania Plus stuff - can't wait to see a full quality scan of the article rather than Famitsu's own low-res image! Spoiler Looks like several of the screenshots have Sonic and Mighty paired up with both characters' life icons displayed. Mighty appears to be the lead in some shots and Sonic in others - combined with the image of Sonic and Ray encountering the wrecked Hard Boiled Heavies, it looks like Encore Mode might allow the player to mix and match different pairings of characters similar to Chaotix or Sonic Advance 3. Very interesting if correct! Also, as well as the sunset theme for Encore Mode's Green Hill, the 4P multiplayer shot in the top right suggests Encore Mode's Mirage Saloon will be at least partially set at night, also confirming at least some of the Encore Mode stages will be added to the Competition Mode.
