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.Continue reading Two New Double-Packs Hit Nintendo Switch Today – Mania, Forces, Team Sonic Racing and Super Monkey Ball!
Update @ 9:33PM EST 08/26/2020: Canadian retailer Video Games Plus has also put up the listing, alongside a HQ box which you can see above. They also put up a listing for the Sonic Mania + Team Sonic Racing Double Pack as well, now with similar bilingual packaging.
The double packs just doubled up! Following the earlier finding of a Sonic Mania + Team Sonic Racing Double Pack for Switch, this time retailer GameFly has put up the same listing, but also added a Sonic Forces + Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz – HD Double Pack for Switch as well. Sadly there is no accompanying box art this time, but the other pack’s box art will give you an idea of what to expect.
While the Sonic Mania + Team Sonic Racing pack is dated for October 26th, 2020 on Amazon for $39.99 USD, there’s no firm date yet for the Sonic Forces + Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD pack. However GameFly lists both for a placeholder October 31st, 2020 date. Perhaps both will release on the same day, possibly also for $39.99 USD?
Once again, when more shows up, we’ll let you know!
UPDATE @ 9:42AM EST: Sega has officially announced Sonic for Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. Below is the tweet from Sega of America with a video. The original post will be below it.
Earlier at the tail-end of September, we reported on a leak that indicated that Sonic the Hedgehog was going to be an unlockable extra character in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD! And thanks to a data-mine, we now know that’s true! What we didn’t realize, however, was that it would feature Sonic’s “classic” design!
Is it possible!? It looks like Sonic the Hedgehog is rolling his way into the Super Monkey Ball universe as an unlockable character in Banana Blitz HD!
