Sonic Mania
SEGA Planning New Sonic the Hedgehog Games in 2021

As Mario celebrates his 35th anniversary with a host of remasters coming to Switch, Sonic the Hedgehog is poised to commemorate 2021 and the blue blur's 30th birthday with a range of new Sonic titles, various events, digital content, and "major announcements".

This comes from SEGA promotional materials printed in a licensing resource for retailers and licensees (via Tails Channel), which notes that as Sonic's 30th year rolls around, " a year of celebration" awaits, promising "new games, digital content, events, major announcements and a tailored licensing programme."

While SEGA hasn't announced plans for a Sonic Mania 2, something that homages Sonic's past glories like that game so deftly did would be a perfect fit for the mascot's 30th anniversary celebrations. And with 'games' plural referenced, we can presumably expect multiple announcements, as well as an update on the Sonic movie sequel.

Previously, SEGA has celebrated Sonic's milestone decades with major game releases, the 10th anniversary delivering Sonic Adventure 2 and the 20th anniversary seeing the release of Sonic Generations. As for 2021 and Sonic's 30th anniversary, we'll have to wait and see, but big things could be in the pipeline.

calling it now its sonic o6 2
but on the serious side it would have been awesome if the fixed the original sonic 06 changed the graphics a bit to make them more presentable and weed out the bugs then with all the internet clout over all these years they may sell alot of copies

Sonic Mania 2 or even a Sonic Generations 2 would be awesome.

I know classic Sonic was in Sonic Forces, but I still want a Generations sequel.

Any sort of sequel to a previous title would be great. I'm hoping for Sonic Mania sequel though.

Sega will fuck this up they always do okay the hype and then never deliver, look at the game gear mini who the hell requested that??

They could do a Dreamcast mini or release more Dreamcast game likes skies of Arcadia etc instead of the same shit like Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventure

I want a collection of Sonic 1 2 and 3 on the Mania engine; same classic levels, but all those lovely new sprites and smoother animations. CD too, would be nice.
