Sonic Mania Plus will launch for PlayStation 4 and Switch on July 19 in Japan for 4,490 yen, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals.
In Japan, the physical release will include goodies such as a soundtrack CD and art book.
As previously announced, Sonic Mania Plus is an updated, physical release version of the digital-only Sonic Mania featuring new playable characters Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel, a new “Encore Mode,” and an expanded four-player “Competition Mode.”
Users who already own Sonic Mania will be able to purchase the newly added content as downloadable content for 500 yen.
In the Americas and Europe, Sonic Mania Plus is due out “this summer” for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account teased yesterday that a new trailer is due out today, so the western release date will likely be announced in the coming hours.
Development is currently 85 percent complete.
Thanks, Famitsu and Hachima Kikou.
