Sonic Mania's joke gameplay mode is an awesome secret

"Since the release of Sonic 3 & Knuckles, an expansion to the Sega Genesis game Sonic the Hedgehog 3, fans have taken to adding on the "& Knuckles" suffix to any number of things, like other movies and games.

"The team behind Sonic Mania are absolute geniuses, taking classic levels from Sonic lore and remixing them to a more standard design for today's age, while keeping everything 16-bit".

Of course, there's still one version of the game still to come, after the PC release of Sonic Mania was delayed until August 29, 2017. A set of Nintendo Switch games were also announced and released at the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Plus release. The game is definitely getting a lot of attention.

According to multiple reports, when a player presses the Home button while playing Sonic Mania on the Nintendo Switch's handheld mode, there is a delay until the hybrid console returns to the menu. Their output has been very hit-and-miss over the years, though they remain in charge of the 3D Sonic games, with Sega mostly opting to swap out developers every now and again; for instance, the terrible Wii U game Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric was developed by Big Red Button Entertainment. Much of Sonic Mania's success is owed to the many fans turned designers attached the project. At the time of the Twitter post, the new game was sitting on a very impressive Metacritic score of 86, while the user score was even better at a rating of 9.2. Meanwhile, the launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch pushed through on Tuesday, Aug. 15.

Other than the console issues, the gamers are loving the new Sonic Mania.
