Sonic Mania's animated intro is a thing of beauty

Sonic Mania's animated intro is a thing of beauty

It was previously set to arrive on August 15, 2017, the same day the game comes to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

As announced during a special presentation for Sonic Mania on the official YouTube channel, Sonic Mania will be released for the PC platform on August 29.

Fortunately, there is a silver-linning; those who already pre-ordered the game will receive a free copy of the original Sonic the Hedgehog.

"We are not going to put out a game that is not the best it can be", he added.

Those who pre-ordered the collector's edition of Sonic Mania will still get their big attractive box on August 15.

While console owners can expect to try out Sonic Mania for themselves on August 15, it appears as though PC players will have to wait just a little bit longer. At the same time, the game is being delayed for a good reason.

Sega has released the opening animation video featured in Sonic Mania. We're always hearing about how buggy games are at launch these days.

Sonic Mania is the Sonic you remember: warm, friendly, definitely not doing any weird sex things.

A third person game using pre-rendered sprites (akin to Donkey Kong Country) on polygonal backdrops, Xtreme promised a very unique take on 3D Sonic that wouldn't be tested again until 2013's Sonic Lost World.
