Sonic Mania

Sega has delayed the PC version of Sonic Mania from its previously planned August 15 release date to August 29 in order to apply further optimizations, the company announced.

As an apology for delaying the PC release at the last minute, all users who have pre-purchased Sonic Mania will receive the original Sonic the Hedgehog for free. As for users who purchased the collector’s edition, you will still receive your box on August 15, and the code inside will allow you to claim your copy of Sonic the Hedgehog.

The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch versions of Sonic Mania are still on track for release on August 15.
