You gotta give it to Sega, they've done a fab job hyping Sonic Mania and that hype only increases with the opening animation for the game!! Seriously!! This brought a little digital 16-bit tear to my eye. Watch this and reflect on the glory days!!

So be honest.. was this kewl or what?!? Sonic Mania looks to be exactly what Sonic fans need to help rekindle that love with their favorite little hedgehog!!

Also, if you've been wondering, fellow Brah Tumstambaugh11 pointed out that the game is a minuscule amount of data, coming in at 211.29MB!! I know my HDD is certainly happy!

Sonic Mania looks to capture the hearts of fans old and new next week! Look for it come August 15!!
