Sonic Mania's Opening Movie Gets The Party Started Right

What better way to get fans ready for some newfangled old-school 2D Sonic the Hedgehog action than some newfangled old-school 2D animation?

Produced by comic book writer/artist Tyson Hesse and featuring killer music from Hyper Potions, Sonic Mania’s opening movie is a delightfully frantic piece. Sonic and his two original super friends run, jump and fly through a colorful fantasy world, having themselves a hell of a time.

Hopefully that’s the same sort experience fans will have when they get their hands on Sonic Mania on August 15.

Can we please just keep this Sonic design going forward? The 1999 redesign looks so....1999. I love the simplicity of this classic Sonic.
