Sonic Mania Reveals Bonus Stages and Time Attack Mode

Sega has announced that Bonus Stages and Time Attack will be included in Sonic Mania. This announcement comes after Special Stages were confirmed back at San Diego Comic-Con.

Blue Spheres (Bonus Stages) will task Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles to navigate on a grid running through blue spheres. Once the spheres have been touched, they will turn red. If the player makes contact with them, the stage will end. Completing the Bonus Stage will give players Silver Medallions. If a perfect score is recorded,  the reward will be a Gold Medallion.

Time Attack will allow players to compete for the fastest times against players around the world. Online leaderboards will update as new times are recorded.

Special Stages will task the player with chasing down UFOs in order to obtain Chaos Emeralds. Blue spheres will be collectible on the stage in order to increase speed.

Check out the trailer below for the new game modes. Sonic Mania will launch on August 15 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.

Trophy Whores 267 – Sibling Rivalry Renewed

Tricky, who has been absent from the show for three weeks, makes his return to Trophy Whores.  As much as the Trophy Whores tease Tricky, they have missed him.  Trophy Whores isn’t the same without Tricky — or any other host.  Lucia, the Ionvein, tags along.

The Trophy Whores, who are short Yield, dive into a swimming pool of chicanery.  It’s a scorcher of a summer, and everyone is trying to beat the heat.  Tricky and Donny can’t get through 20 minutes without renewing their sibling rivalry, which means that Trophy Whores has again achieved homeostasis.

San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing, and Lucia is our reporter on the ground.  Well, he has been to Comic-Con, and we think that counts.  We’re pretty sure that he has seen things related to comics, movies and video games.  The Justice League trailer appeared debuted at Comic-Con, and, unfortunately, Martian Manhunter was nowhere to be seen.  It’s nice to see Cyborg on the screen, but without Martian Manhunter, it doesn’t feel like a true Justice League movie.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Minecraft: Story Mode, Injustice 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Sonic Mania.  It’s 2016, and, depending upon whom you ask, Sonic’s relevance and viability are dubious.  If this were 1992, then Sonic would be battling Mario for mascot supremacy.  Unfortunately, for Sega and Sonic, the hedgehog’s popularity has dried up like a slug on blacktop in August.
