Everybody remembers Green Hill Zone, the most famous level in Sonic the Hedgehog and one of the most famous levels in all of gaming. Sonic Mania is baking on your nostalgia, and now it is dialing that up to 11 with a sequel – Green Hill Zone Act 2!
Set in a similar atmosphere, Green Hill Zone Act 2 takes advantage of the new mechanics of Sonic Mania, including the ability to set log bridges on fire!
Sega has also showed off Heavy Gunner, the new boss of the first zone, Studiopolis. Heavy Gunner, as his name implies, carries a rocket launcher to take care of pesky speeders.
Sonic Mania is the ultimate celebration of past and future, blending Genesis-era Sonic platforming with New Zones, Powerful Bosses, and 3 Playable Characters, all presented at a gorgeous 60 FPS. In the span of 25 years, Sonic has collected countless rings across various Zones, and Sonic Mania revisits what it was that first made Sonic great, all while building upon that foundation and giving old and new fans alike an experience that will leave them smiling.
Sonic Mania will release this Spring on Nintendo Switch.
