Sega has announced that the PC version of Sonic Mania has been delayed by two weeks. The game will now release on August 29, 2017.


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.

The game was scheduled to launch on August 15, 2017, for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. However, the PC version will now launch two weeks later on August 29, 2017.

The PC version was delayed because it requires additional work to be optimized for the PC. Whether this means that the game is currently a straight port from the console version is unknown, though the company did stress that "quality is the most important thing for everyone involved".

New in this Sonic title is the addition of a new movement skill called the "drop dash" that allows players to instantly accelerate upon landing on surfaces. The drop dash can be used to break through barricades and take out enemies.

Sega has also announced that players who have prepurchased the game via Steam will be receiving the original Sonic the Hedgehog on Steam free of charge as a way of thanking players for their support.
