During the recent Sonic 25th Anniversary celebration livestream, SEGA announced that a new, classic-style 2D Sonic adventure called Sonic Mania is launching next Spring. Soon after, SEGA announced a special Collector’s Edition of the game that includes a 12-inch statue of Sonic himself standing atop a SEGA Genesis, a replica cartridge with an inlaid goldenSonic ring, and a metallic collector’s card, all stuffed in a deluxe collector’s box.
At the time, the
Sonic Mania Collector’s Edition was only announced for North America, but SEGA announced today that it’s going to release in Europe as well. Ivo Gerscovich (what a fitting first name for a Sonic executive!), Chief Brand Officer of Sonic Pillar, has issued the following statement:
“We’ve been thrilled with the European fan excitement surrounding Sonic Mania. While we weren’t able to announce the Sonic Mania Collector’s Edition simultaneously with North America, we are now pleased to announce it’s available for pre-order for Europe. Our fans across the world are important to us.” —
Sonic Mania releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC next Spring, and European gamers can pick up the Collector’s Edition for £79.99.
