Have you heard of SegaSonic the Hedgehog? This isn't merely a packaged version of the same game, though; SEGA says it'll be updated and bring new goodies with it. Sega has not released exact sales numbers for Sonic Mania, but Sega gave it credit for helping improve game sales for the first half of 2017. One will focus entirely on Knuckles, for example, while Ray and Mighty may be appearing later on.

At the end of the presentation, a new Sonic title was teased that was not a sequel to any prior Sonic game.

The teaser consists of some vehicle engines revving and the silhouette of a logo.

Sonic Mania Plus will launch this summer in digital and physical forms. However, we can't confirm this until Sega officially unveils a new game.
