Sonic the Hedgehog fans have been waiting for a new game starring the iconic SEGA mascot for quite some time, and during the San Diego Comic-Con it’s been confirmed that not one, but two different games will be released on PC and consoles.

The first new game is a classic 2D platform game called Sonic Mania. The game will retain the core classic gameplay of the series, including reimagined areas from the original Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD and Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles. Sonic Mania won’t be just a nostalgia fueled game, as it will include brand new areas as well as new gameplay mechanics. The game is currently in development by SEGA of America, PagodaWest Games, Christian Whitehead and Simon Thomley, and it will launch during Spring 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

It’s the ultimate Sonic celebration! Sonic returns in a new 2D platforming high speed adventure, and he’s not alone!

Developed in collaboration between SEGA, Christian Whitehead, Headcannon, and PagodaWest Games, experience new zones and remixed classic levels with Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles!

The second new game announced during San Diego Comic-Con is currently known as Project Sony 2017. Not much has been said about the game, other than the facts that it’s being produced by Sonic Team and that it will be a brand new experience. Judging from the presence of Classic and Modern Sonic in the trailer, it’s safe to assume that it will include some of the features found in Sonic Generations. Also, unlike Sonic Mania, Project Sonic 2017 has also been confirmed for Nintendo NX.

When things look their darkest, even heroes need a helping hand.

Debuted at Sonic’s 25th Anniversary Party, take a first look at the newest entry in Sonic’s journey, arriving Holiday 2017.

Both Sonic Mania and Project Sonic 2017 will launch next year in all regions on consoles and PC. We will keep you updated on both games as soon as more comes in on them, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
