Updated 16th August

Sonic Mania Collector’s Edition

  • The Collector’s Edition is available for the Switch, Xbox and PlayStation versions of the game. It features a 12-inch statue of Sonic standing on a Sega Mega Drive, a “cartridge” box with gold ring inside, and a metallic collector’s card containing the digital game code.
  • The CE is currently available at Amazon for all console versions, priced at £79.99 (UK), and around $70 (US). It sold out quickly when first available late last year, so might do so again this time.
  • It’s also available online at Walmart in the US, at around $70 (Switch, Xbox, PlayStation). The apparent shipping date is in late September, however.
  • While officially sold out on Amazon Canada, some independent sellers are offering (with a markup, of course!) the Collector’s Edition.
  • Some copies have also been made available to Best Buy and Gamestop physical stores in the US.
  • Amazon in Europe: France: €89.99 (Switch), Spain: €89.99 (XB1/PS4), Italy: €89.99 (all), Germany: Sold out.

Soundtracks

  • The official vinyl soundtrack for Sonic Mania is being produced by Data Discs, at a price of £19.99. The transparent blue version is newly available to preorder for delivery in October. The black version is sold out but may have a second pressing in the future, and the limited edition paint spatter version is sold out for good.
  • An official CD soundtrack is expected, but has not been confirmed at the time of writing.

Windows PC

  • The Windows version releases two weeks after the console versions, on Tuesday 29th August. It’s a digital release on Steam, with a post-release price of £14.99 (UK), $19.99 (US).
  • Mania isn’t a particularly demanding game – the minimum specs are a Pentium 4, 2 GiB of RAM, a DirectX 9.0-compatible graphics card, and 400 MB of storage, all of which should be no problem for most users.
  • Steam currently has a preorder discount of 10%, making its prices £13.49 (UK), $17.99 (US).

Nintendo Switch

  • The Switch version released on Tuesday 15th August. It’s a digital release through the Nintendo eShop – a physical release is rumoured, but not confirmed at the time of writing. It’s £16.99 (UK), $19.99 (US), and has a 195 MB download.

PlayStation 4

  • The PlayStation version also released on Tuesday 15th August. It’s also a digital release on the PlayStation Store, with no physical release planned. It’s £15.99 (UK), $19.99 (US).
  • The preorder bonus was 6 Sonic Mania Avatars and 3 Themes, which are also available to purchase if you’ve bought the game after release.

    1. Looks like the Welcome to Green Hill and Green Hill silhouette shirts are basically region variants.

      I’ve removed the link to prevent confusion!

  1. At the time of writing, Sonic Mania is actually back in stock at Amazon UK on both Switch and PlayStation 4. I missed the boat originally but lucked out.

  2. For the Collectors Edition, Walmart has the PS4, XB1, and Switch version listed to come out on the 26 of September while the PC one has the correct date.

  3. Totally forgot to preorder the vinyl when it was available, really annoyed I missed out! Fingers crossed it does get a second round of preorders!
