Pokémon is popular, 98 Degrees is touring, a Tarzan is back in theaters – it feels like the 90s all over again. Fortunately, things are about to get a lot more nostalgic with the release of Sonic Mania for PS4, Xbox One and PC. As part of the series’ 25th anniversary, the 2D Sonic game is getting a reboot.

You can thank Christian Whitehead, Headcannon and PagodaWest Games for this genius throwback. Whitehead has been working with the Sonic Series since 2011, so he clearly has an understanding of what the fans are looking for. The 2D games are where Sonic originated from. It was those awful, old school graphics that made everyone fall in love with the game.

Since it’s 2016, fans have to expect some new animations. However, a popular level named “Green Hill Zone” will hit fans right in the feels.

Throwback To The Classic

The best part is, players can choose from THREE different characters – Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. Thank you Sega for listening to the fans! Unfortunately if you only have a Wii, you need to find a friend who has a PS4 because you won’t want to miss this.

That’s not all Sonic fans – the team recently announced that they are working on a “Project Sonic” for 2017. Also, Sonic Mania will have “reimagine” zones on the PS4 with new acts and bosses. At least we’re halfway to Christmas because we know what’s going on our lists this year!

Make sure to watch what you’re in store for through the trailer below. Did you just have a flashback of playing this in your room for hours? We did.

So Exciting!

SHARE this will all your 90s friends on Facebook who grew up with this game!
