Ironically, we just finished posting about Sonic Superstars and now it’s time to talk about Penny’s Big Breakaway—which just happens to be developed by the team that worked on Sonic Mania. In case you are not among the initiated, Sonic Mania was easily the best Sonic game of the past decade, so the pedigree here behind Penny’s Big Breakaway is impressive. Now look at the game in motion to see what it’s all about:

Here’s what the press release says about the game:

In this 3D platforming adventure from the team behind Sonic Mania, you’ll explore the bright and colorful world of Macaroon as Penny and her newly animated friend, Yo-Yo. Perform stylish, acrobatic tricks to avoid the clutches of the grouchy Emperor Eddie and his massive horde of pushy penguins in Story Mode. Power up Yo-Yo to protect Penny and put your speed running skills to the test in Time Attack Mode to unlock special items and complete secret stages. Penny’s Big Breakaway launches on Nintendo Switch early next year.

The game certainly looks beautiful, and although it seems to have some hints of Sonic-like gameplay around the edges Penny’s Big Breakaway seems primed to do its own thing. It will launch early in 2024.
