Don’t worry Europeans. We know that Sega was a little hush-hush for Sonic Mania’s availability back when it was announced in July. Turns out that not only is it coming to Europe but, at the moment, is the only place you can order the collector’s edition. Specifically through Amazon UK, France, Germany, and Spain.
To say Sonic Mania’s Collector’s Edition is a full blown, 90’s nostalgia trip is an understatement. You’ll receive a 12-inch Sonic statue that has a replicated SEGA Mega Drive that plays the classic SEGA startup audio, a SEGA cartridge cast with a gold ring, and a metallic collector’s card with a download code for the game itself. Also, you’ll be able to see these items for yourself in the video below. Be warned however, just make sure that your nostalgia feels are in order before watching.
“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 will release for the PlayStation 4 sometime in Spring 2017.
