Recently, specifically in July 22, in Sonic's 25th Anniversary party, we got trailers for two games in the Sonic The Hedgehog series. The first of which, which actually has gameplay for it, is a retraux title going by the name of Sonic Mania. It aims to recapture the feel of the 2D Sonic Games of old, and it looks great.
Here is the trailer for Sonic Mania:


For those who didn't know, a while ago Sega came out with a message apologizing to fans of the Sonic series who they felt had let down and they would get their act together. Given the looks of Sonic Mania from the trailer... Sega is doing just that. This game is made via a collaboration with a few developers including one Christian Whitehead, who made the Retro engine, on which runs the iOS and Android releases of Sonic 1, Sonic 2 and Sonic CD.

And from what I'm seeing? Sonic Mania looks great. The gameplay definitely looks accurate to the Classic Sonic norm, it has the original trio (Although I would want to see Amy playable with her Sonic Advance moveset on top of those three) and yet it manages to keep things original with new zones and edited designs to existing zones.

So I want to ask you all: What do you think of Sonic Mania? Does it look good to you? Could this mark the start of Sonic making a comeback and making a good name for himself again?

Hope so. I wanna see Sonic made great again.

I'd like to see more of this game. Maybe some zones that don't already exist?
Unlike you people, I get my news from a reliable source. Image

Well, we got one already existing Zone revealed (Green Hill, although you go underground about 2/3 of the way through act 1) and one new zone (Studiopolis).

A lot of people are considering it the "real Sonic 4"

Either way, I am very excited for it.

Looks good from the small amount of stuff shown so far.

Probably will buy it since they got Christian Whitehead developing it.

It's recently been announced that this game is coming to the Nintendo Switch! Looks like this game is gonna be the titan of 2D Platformers on the Switch (Given that Super Mario Odyssey is going the route of Galaxy and 64, seems like).
