SEGA have announced that Competition Mode will be coming to Sonic Mania that’ll bring back competitive split-screen to the Sonic franchise.
Back in Sonic 2 siblings across the world could once and for all prove who the better Sonic player was. Now, that competitive mode is making a return in Sonic Mania with the new Competition Mode. This mode will let players choose between Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles as they race to win, however winning is determined by more than who comes first.
In Sonic Mania, Competition Mode winners are determined not only by clear time, but score, number of items acquired, and number of rings acquired throughout the level. The rules for each match can be determined by players too offering a number of ways to play.
A brand new trailer highlighting the competition mode has also been released which you can see below.
Sonic Mania is set to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 15.
