It’s taken years, but modern video game technology has finally developed to the point of being able to replicate the look and feel of Sonic the Hedgehog in his 90s Sega Genesis heyday. The result is Sonic Mania, an upcoming retro-styled video game billed as the return of 2D Sonic, and which has a new pre-order trailer now online.
The new pre-order trailer for Sonic Mania begins and ends with old-school black and white pencil animation, but the meat of the trailer is the gameplay footage in the middle, which is likely to provide you with the pleasant buzz of secondhand nostalgia, and I mean that in the best possible way.
You can see the pre-order trailer for Sonic Mania below. And if, as intended, it fulfills its species-being and makes you want to pre-order the game, you can do so at its official site right here.
