Sonic Mania Collectors Edition Announced, Pre-Orders Available

Sega has revealed the Sonic Mania Collectors Edition and it’s available for pre-order now. Which is something you should consider doing soon since the fan reaction has been stupendous so far on social media.

Sonic Mania has a scheduled release date of March 31st, 2017. The Collectors Edition will run you $69.99 normally and include:

  • Deluxe “SEGA Genesis” style Collector’s Box
  • 12″ Classic Sonic Statue featuring SEGA Genesis Base. Flip the power switch to trigger the “SEEGAA” startup audio!
  • Metallic Collector’s Card with Sonic Mania Download Code (digital game code)
  • SEGA Cartridge Cast with Golden Ring

Sadly, a physical copy of the game doesn’t appear to be in the cards. I’ll take a potentially fantastic Sonic game and be happy with that, though.

You can pre-order the game from Amazon below. With Prime, it will only cost you $55.99 and you don’t get charged until it ships!

More Sega Classics Added to Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Microsoft has added a few classic Sega fan favorites to the list of backwards compatible games on the Xbox One this week. Jet Set Radio led the charge, with Phantasy Star 2 and Sonic & Knuckles pulling up the rear.

If you’ve purchased the other classic Sonic games, you can use the original lock-on feature from within Sonic & Knuckles, which is pretty sweet.

What missing Sega games do you want Microsoft to add next?

You can grab the Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection for Xbox 360 I talked about here for roughly $18 right now. The PS3 version is here for about the same price.

Note that if you do purchase them through these links, I may or may not get a small commission depending on Amazon’s feeling that day.
