“We’ve been thrilled with the European fan excitement surrounding Sonic Mania,” said Ivo Gerscovich, Chief Brand Officer of Sonic Pillar, “While we weren’t able to announce the Sonic Mania Collector’s Edition simultaneously with North America, we are now pleased to announce it’s available for pre-order for Europe. Our fans across the world are important to us.”
Sonic Mania is a new Sonic title with the iconic zone and act structure of the original games packed full of new elements and Easter Eggs to surprise and delight players.
