Sonic Mania released almost a year ago now. The game found success going back to its roots with classic and wistful pixel-art, exciting music, and speed. Now, since the release of Sonic Mania Plus, they have found even more success. The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter announced yesterday that they have received a 90 Metascore on Nintendo Switch.
With a 90 Metascore on Nintendo Switch, Sonic Mania Plus is now the highest-rated Sonic game in 25 years.
