Sega has announced that it has delayed Sonic Mania. The 2D Sonic platform game was announced last year and is Sega's attempt to go back to its roots by staying true to the original 2D Sonic experience.
Sonic Mania features the classic 8-bit retro graphics from the first titles in an advanced engine capable of rendering the game in high definition resolutions. While the game mostly contains new worlds to play in, the game also brings back several classic levels to re-explore.
According to the announcement, the team behind the game needs additional development time to ensure that it meets the expectations of its fans. The game was scheduled to be released this spring.
Along with the delay Sega has also released a new trailer for the game that gives viewers a first look at the Flying Battery Zone.
Sonic Mania is now scheduled to release sometime this summer for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
