Sonic Mania represents the perfect balance of old and new, so it's time to expand upon that in a sequel to one of the best 2D Sonic games.
RPCSX, the newly announced PS4 emulator made by the wonderful people behind RPCS3, was shown running Sonic Mania at a whopping 45 FPS.
The divide between both iterations of Sonic is now reaching spin-off territory, and the way Sega is handling it is both a blessing and a curse.
The next game from the team behind Sonic Mania was announced at this week's Nintendo Direct, and it looks just like what you would expect the Sonic Mania team to make without access to the Blue Blur.
Penny's Big Breakaway is a colorful 3D platformer starring a brand new mascot, a girl named Penny who wields a living yo-yo weapon. From the brief trailer, the game seems to have a lot of ideas and, given the critical and commercial success of Sonic Mania, it's a shame that the team is using those ideas in a game for Private Division instead of Sega.
