Following the success of Niantic’s “Pokémon Go,” Sega wants to make a strong comeback to the video game market with two new Sonic games. 

The Japanese game developer, which was formerly the largest in the gaming industry, announced earlier today its plans of releasing two new Sonic games in 2017, first reported. 

The first game, titled “Sonic Mania,” will bring nostalgia to loyal Sonic gamers according to Sega, and by the looks of it, this game will really deliver a nostalgic feeling because of its graphics.

Instead of rocking the high-definition graphics modern vide games have today, Sega opted to design “Sonic Mania” with a two-dimensional pixel-style art.

Aside from the graphics, “Sonic Mania” will make players walk down memory lane with the familiar Zones and Acts from previous releases of the franchise, such as “Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles.”

New levels will also be incorporated into this game, but the remixed old levels will definitely pique the interest of longtime Sonic players. 

“Sonic Mania” is slated for a Spring 2017 release, according to, and it will be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

While speaking of the upcoming game, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka said, “'Sonic Mania' was born out of our fans’ love of the classic Sonic 2D platform game. …'Sonic Mania' has been a passion project for the entire team and we look forward to sharing more details about it later this year.”

Meanwhile, Sega also announced another title game that will be released on consoles and PC around the same time “Sonic Mania” is released. 

The still untitled game is currently codenamed “Project Sonic 2017,” and it will first arrive on Nintendo NX before reaching the Xbox One, PlayStation4 and the PC. 

The makers of “Sonic Colors” and “Sonic Generations” will be in charge of developing this game, according to Nintendo News.  

Sega has yet to announce the official release dates for both “Sonic Mania” and Project Sonic 2017. 

The company's announcement about the two new games comes a day after Sonic celebrated its 25th anniversary at the San Diego Comic-Con on Friday.
