A scan popped up on Twitter today from Nintendo Dream magazine in Japan showing bits of info for both Sonic Mania and Project Sonic 2017 on Nintendo Switch. While nothing of note was said of Sonic Mania, we got a few small bits about Project Sonic 2017, but nothing mind-blowing.
Twitter user PushDustin has the issue on hand and was able to translate the info about Project Sonic 2017, below are what was said:
- The Switch version is 1-player-only and supports “all kinds” of the Switch’s play modes, one specified naturally was “TV”, but other Switch modes (though not mentioned by PushDustin) are Tabletop-Mode and Portable mode. So far the latter two weren’t specified, but there’s no reason why this would not be the case for the game.
- It’s an Action-Adventure game, but curiously it’s literally listed as a “cave exploring action adventure game”, but PushDustin notes not to take that literally.
- You have to protect the world from devastation from Eggman’s Death Egg Robots using 2 Sonics.
- Lastly, PushDustin just says “Sonic’s new adventure begins”.
As said, this is nothing mind-blowing, we’ll likely get our first major bits of info from the upcoming SXSW panel on March 16th for Project Sonic 2017.
Special thanks go to BlueParadox for posting the scan, and again to PushDustin for the translations.
