If you're reading this from North America, you've likely already seen the Sonic Mania Collector's Edition sitting around retailer pre-order pages. But for those in Europe, we've seen nothing of the sort - until now.
Being "...thrilled with the European fan excitement surrounding Sonic Mania,” Ivo Gerscovich, Chief Brand Officer of Sonic Pillar is "...pleased to announce it’s available for pre-order for Europe."
The hefty package was shown off in a 90s-style parody advertisement when pre-orders launched in North America last month.
The edition itself comes with with a 12-inch Sonic statue adorning a replicated SEGA Mega Drive console that plays the famous SEGA startup audio when powered up. There's even a SEGA cartridge cast housing a gold ring and a metallic card with a download code for the digital version of the game.
Sonic Mania itself hearkens back to the hedgehog's more 'classic' outings. Tails and Knuckles return in the fast-paced retro platformer featuring famous stages from past titles with a few little twists and hidden easter eggs to freshen things up a little.
Sonic Mania releases in Spring of next year.
