That’s basically as far into its previously announced Summer release window as it is possible for it to release.
Sonic Mania has already been delayed once- it was originally due for launch this Spring, but it was pushed into this Summer. Now, we may have a better idea of when the new release date will be. According to some emails that people who pre-ordered the game on Amazon are receiving, it appears as though the game will be launching in September- September 4, specifically.
This would actually put it on the outer edge of the ‘Summer’ release window- basically a little over two weeks before Summer makes way for Fall. However, it does reinforce that the new release date makes sense.
Sonic Mania is meant to be a new, retro style 2D Sonic platformer, in the same vein as the 16-bit Genesis games. It is going to be releasing on the Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage and information on the game.
