With only one week to go until Sonic Mania’s release, SEGA has revealed the game’s competition mode! For those wondering if the mode is playable online, the Sonic twitter specifically mentions friends can be challenged “locally”, so this would appear to be an offline-only mode.
Competition mode is the latest iteration of a Sonic multiplayer mode that first appeared in Sonic 2, where players raced through a level of the game as either Sonic or Tails. In this mode, players don’t only compete for the fastest time and score, but also the number of rings and items collected.
Stay tuned for Sonic Mania news as it comes, and Sonic Mania week at The Sonic Stadium!
