One part of Sonic Mania that wasn’t revealed yet was the Special Stages. Nobody knew if they were going to be new ones, or revamped old ones. Well, at long last, we have gotten our first look at them, courtesy of a reveal by SEGA at their San Diego Comic Con Sonic Mania panel. The stages are inspired by the SEGA Saturn and CD, where you chase down a UFO to collect a Chaos Emerald. They also announced that the game will have cutscenes similar to Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and it will have a Sonic CD-inspired opening animation that we will get to see on August 14th. As for more information on that Special Stage reveal, we’ve included all the related tweets down below.
