Sonic Mania looks to be doing a lot of things right, if the hype from Sonic fans like myself is anything go by. Another good move by the development team is the addition of the “Competition Mode.” This game type will pit players against one another in a race for position, rings, and power-ups. It’s all local, so you’ll have to actually meet with friends and play old school style!
You can get a cheeky first look at the game in the video below.
Surprise! Sonic Mania is bringing back competition mode, meaning you can go head-to-head with your closest friends (or rival echidnas) anytime you want.
A similar mode was first seen in Sonic The Hedgehog 2, which supported two players on a single screen.
Sonic Mania is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on August 15.
What do you make of the Competitive Mode?
