There's an updated, expanded version of Sonic Mania coming this summer

During the annual SXSW event in Austin, Texas, SEGA announced Sonic Mania Plus and it's slated for a summer release at retail.

Since all Sonic games are coming out on the PC these days we are pretty sure that this new Sonic racing game will also hit the PC, so stay tuned for more! For this reason, the company announced Sonic Mania Plus. The physical release will include a holographic slip cover, 32-page art booklet, and reversible Genesis/Mega-drive sleeve. It would go on within the hour to reveal some other smaller bits of news, such as a new Sonic Mania Adventures 5-episode show and a odd collaboration with Puma. Both characters hail from 1993's SegaSonic the Hedgehog. Sharing the same font and stylisation as 1997's SEGA Saturn Sonic R logo, the teaser features bits of a auto and the sound of a revving engine.
