After months of teasers and brief gameplay videos the release date for Sonic Mania has finally been announced. You can expect to see it arrive for both PC and consoles on August 15th at a $20/€20 price tag, which I must admit is a lot lower than expected given the amount of marketing behind it.

All of this information comes to us via the recently posted pre-order trailer, and if you're interested in seeing what Sonic Mania is going to look like on release you'll find the video right below. Just don't ignore it purely based on the title, its a gameplay trailer through and through. Anyway, have a look:

You can learn more, or just grab yourself a copy, by heading over to either the official website or Steam. And since no other relevant piece of information has been released with this announcement, allow me to send you off with a couple of the new images:
