Classic mode will be exactly as it sounds, featuring the collection of retro titles in their “classic form”. Anniversary mode offers a full screen display and infinite lives.

Missions, Medallions and Museum: Put your skills to the test and earn medallions by competing for various missions throughout the games. Players can spend medallions to unlock new content from the vault, try the Special Stage and more.

Sonic has been very busy lately, with his own films, and he’s getting a new game in Roblox, as well. And sure, this isn’t Sonic Mania 2, but it’s those original, truly great games, and people love that retro action on Switch, right?
