Sonic Mania Plus, the definitive version of Sonic Mania, will be released in July.

Sonic Mania Plus comes with additional content not included with Sonic Mania, such as Encore Mode with remixed stages and four-player Competition Mode.

Two playable characters, Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel, are included.

Competition and Time Attack modes will receive an update allowing four player competitions, and ghost challenges for time trials.

A physical edition will include a 32-page collector’s artbook, a reversible SEGA Genesis cover, and holographic packaging. It will sell for $29.99 or the regional equivalent.
