We don't know yet if a full-color version (teased at the end) will be in the final game or not, or if it's just for the trailer, but one can only hope.

Although it was originally scheduled to come out in the spring of this year and then became delayed until summer 2017, Sega has now finally confirmed the exact release date for its forthcoming 2D retro Sonic the Hedgehog game, Sonic Mania, as August 15, 2017. It is a throwback to classic Sonic, but with 60 FPS gameplay and improved physics.

The game will let players take the role of Sonic, Knuckles or Tails as they pursue Dr. Eggman.

The two-time Olympian explained to her followers that a woman at the TSA told her she recognized her muscular arms. The athlete, who had a hard time as a young child due to her appearance, has finally come to terms with her body.

The game was put into development by Christian Whitehead, who previously worked on the Sonic CD revival for PC, mobile and consoles, as well as Headcannon and PagodaWest, working alongside Sega.

"Play as Sonic, Tails and Knuckles as you race through all-new Zones and fully re-imagined classics, each filled with exciting surprises and powerful bosses. Welcome to the next level for the world's fastest blue hedgehog!" the company's game description reads. The game's Collector's Edition, which will be available only in North America for $69.99, is available for pre-order at various retailers while supplies last. A newly released trailer shows off such gameplay elements. When it goes live we'll announce that here on Nintendo Wire.
