If, for some crazy reason, you don’t already own Sonic Mania, Sonic Forces or Team Sonic Racing on Nintendo Switch, then you’re in for a treat! SEGA is releasing two twin-packs for Nintendo’s console, which will allow you to jump in on all the major Sonic games on the platform at a reduced cost.
We previously reported on these double-packs back in August, when both Amazon and GameFly leaked the existence of these physical re-releases on their webstores. One pack includes Sonic Mania and Team Sonic Racing, while another bundles Sonic Forces with Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD (which comes complete with a Sonic cameo. So, you know, it’s relevant).
According to the press release we got, “Each pack brings together unique gameplay styles. With Team Sonic Racing and Sonic Mania, fans will experience adrenaline-pumping races and speedy side-scrolling gameplay with familiar faces from the Sonic universe. With Sonic Forces and Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD, players can step into Sonic’s shoes to become a hero in a world ridden with evil and race through stages and challenges with 10 thrilling Party Games as the fastest, most manoeuvrable monkey around.” Quite.
Each twin-pack costs $39.99 at all good online stores. This seems to be a North America-only deal at the moment, but we’ll let you know if this is destined for the UK or anywhere else.
