After a few days of waiting, now all PC gamers can enjoy Sonic Mania, a title with which SEGA seeks to revive the golden age of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Unfortunately, not everything has been honey over flakes in its launch, as it presents DRM Denuvo protection, which has caused some players to have problems when they wanted to play offline.

Fortunately, SEGA is aware of the above, so they are already looking for a solution. "Sonic Mania is intended to be played offline and we're investigating reports on that. We're also investigating other issues like controller support, these are all PC specific things that Christian and the team have been working on these last few weeks. Please bear with us while we collate and investigate problems that are being brought to our attention," the company said but it has not pointed out how long it will take to change this situation. Still, we'll let you know once a fix is deployed.

If the above does not bother you, you should know that the PC version of Sonic Mania is available on Steam for $19.99 USD. The platformer has support for the achievements systems; in addition to that, it supports cloud saves. Also, you'll be glad to know that it offers full compatibility with traditional controllers.

While you do not need a monster PC to run this title, we leave you with its minimum system requirements below:

  • Operating System: Windows 7/8/10
  • Processor: Core 2 Duo
  • Memory: 2GB of RAM
  • DirectX: Version 9.0c
  • Storage: 400 MB of available space
  • Sound card: DirectX 9.0c Compatible

Sonic Mania already came to consoles in mid-August and now is available on PC. Have you already played Sonic Mania on your PC and noticed any error? What do you think of this version of the game? Let us know in the comments below.
