Sonic Mania Plus races onto PS4 next week with new characters, modes and reimagined zones

Owners of the original game can upgrade to the definitive version of the PS4 platformer with Encore DLC

After the launch of Sonic Mania last year, fans kept asking us for one thing: “Give us a physical version, please!” On 17th July, your wish will become a reality – and not only will the game come in a physical package, but also, we’ve added more content and amazing bonuses!

Sonic Mania Plus

If you haven’t had a chance to play Sonic Mania yet, Sonic Mania Plus is the perfect opportunity to experience the definitive version of the game. The game will be available in a collectible physical package, with new characters, features and reimagined zones for new and veteran players alike.

Already own Sonic Mania digitally? We have you covered! The Encore DLC features all of the in-game content available in Sonic Mania Plus. Just head over to PlayStation Store on 17th July to upgrade.

One of the new elements we’re most eager to share with fans is the return of Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel, both of whom are playable characters in Sonic Mania Plus.

People have asked for Mighty and Ray to make a reappearance for years, so we can’t wait to see you guys enjoy these blasts from the past! Harness the power of Mighty’s shell as you smash through obstacles, or glide through zones with Ray’s flying ability.

Sonic Mania Plus

We’ve also added an all-new Encore mode, which challenges players to run through fresh new versions of Sonic Mania Zones as they’ve never seen them before! You can now play with up to three other friends locally on Competition mode, or battle for the quickest time in Time Attack mode.

Sonic Mania Plus

Thanks again to all the fans who played and supported the original Sonic Mania. We’re thrilled for you to continue the adventure on 17th July with Sonic Mania Plus, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed putting it all together!

For the upgrade? That can’t be right!

Gah too expensive!

Please contain a platinum trophy this time! I still can’t believe a cookie clicker rip-off got one but a game like Resident Evil 4 didn’t.


This had better have a Platinum Trophy, otherwise i’m still not bothering with it.

Can’t find it. It’s the 17th.


I found it, but it won’t download. It just says “purchased” and there’s no option to download it.
