SEGA has announced that Sonic Mania, which releases in a couple of weeks, will feature Special Stages as well as a Time Attack mode.
Long time fans of the Sonic series will instantly recognise the special stage dubbed “Blue Spheres”. Players must navigate Sonic, Tails or Knuckles through a series of blue spheres in order to clear the stage. The spheres turn red once touched, bumping into the again will end the round. The aim is to turn all spheres red to earn a Gold Medallion. Ending the stage before completing the stage will earn you a Silver Medallion.
Another special stage that has been unveiled is known as “Catch the UFO” where players chase down an enemy UFO using blue spheres as a speed boost. Completing the stage will reward players with Chaos Emeralds.
Finally the Time Attack mode, where players race for the best times and compete against one another on an online leaderboard.
Sonic Mania will be available on the 15th of August for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. Players can also pre-order either the standard or special editions on the official website.
