Sonic Mania Delayed Until September

But I wanna go fast!

Sonic Mania


For those of you anxiously anticipating the new retro-inspired Sonic game, Sonic Mania, you may just have to wait a few months more.  An email sent out to gamers who pre-ordered the game from Amazon contained the following information:


We have received new release date information to your pre-ordered video game.  The release date for the video game listed below has been changed by the publisher, and we want to provide you with a new delivery estimate based on the new release date:

“Sonic Mania Playstation 4”

Estimated arrival date: September 04, 2017.

We’ll make every effort to get the delayed items to you as soon as possible.”

A new release date has been updated for the PS4, PC, and XBox One versions of the game.  We have no information yet on the Nintendo Switch version.

Below is a screen capture of said email with the recipients order number edited out:
