Sonic Mania Gameplay Trailer Shows off New Green Hill Zone

Runtime: 2:02    Author: sonic    Category: Game Footage

Sega released a new trailer over the weekend, showcasing a new area in Sonic Mania. The 2D throwback title will feature Green Hill Zone Act 2. While aesthetically similar to Act 1 in the first game, it shows off some new methods of traversal.

As GameSpot points out, ziplines feature prominently. We also get a look at Sonic’s new Drop Dash ability. This allows him to charge up a spin dash move as he’s in the air, and release it as soon as he hits the ground. You’ll also get a look at how elemental shields will interact with the environment, with the flame shield burning spiked wooden bridges.

Sonic Mania is set to release this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch. A brand-new game is also in the works, but details surrounding it are sparse.

No footage of the boss though, I heard that it's kind of crazy.

About 10 years ago I probably would have been excited for this. Cant say its raising the pulse at all these days.
