Sonic Mania Plus features Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel as bonus playable characters, a new Encore Mode that’ll give existing players another reason to go through Sonic Mania again, an expanded four-player Competition Mode, and a 32-page art book. Physical copies will cost $30, and the new content will also find its way to digital owners via an update (with pricing TBD).
I don’t know how much the rest of you care about reversible cover art, but the Sega Genesis-style box alone makes the physical release super tempting for me. Thirty bucks isn’t bad at all.
