The original Sonic Mania on Switch was a fantastic game, and its updated version, Sonic Mania Plus, is even better, as shown by its recent critical and commercial success.

Not only is Sonic Mania Plus a ‘good Sonic game’, it may be one of the best in recent memory — indeed, it’s currently the highest rated Sonic game in 25 years according to SEGA.

Not only that, the game entered the UK charts at number five in its launch week, with the Switch version clearly leading the charge — 52% of the game’s sales were on Switch compared to 34% on PS4 and only 15% on Xbox One. This is particularly impressive given the fact that the other consoles still enjoy a larger share of the market.
