SEGA has confirmed via a trailer that the revived blast from Sonic's blast in Sonic Mania will be coming to PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch in mid-August.
It's the glorious and pixelated return of 2D Sonic in his natural habitat as Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles take on unique bosses across rolling 2D worlds with classic gameplay. It supports local co-op and competitive multiplayer.

Multiple playable characters give you the ability to go explosively fast as Sonic, soar as Tails, or power through tough obstacles with Knuckles’ brute strength. You can re-live the Sonic of the past with an exciting new twist on classic zones while fighting against new bosses and Dr. Eggman’s evil robot army."
