by on March 19, 2018

SEGA’s SXSW panel sees a ton of Sonic news.

The highlight is Sonic Mania Plus. This is an expanded Sonic Mania for retail with an artbook, reversible sleeve, and more. The new content for the game in this release will be sold to original owners as an Encore DLC Pack. It looks like this isn’t a free update. Thankfully the retail release which I will buy on all platforms has a 32 page artbook, Megadrive sleeve, and more.The event saw the following outside of Sonic Mania Plus:
