Over the past few months, Sega has done a bang-up job promoting Sonic Mania Plus with a series of animated Adventures to tell the story of the speedy hedgehog and his old and new friends alike. But all good things must come to an end as the fifth and final episode is now available for viewing.
The episode, titled Metal Mayhem, can be viewed above. In it, the fate of the Chaos Emeralds is revealed as the decisive battle between Sonic and his evil robotic counterpart, Metal Sonic, takes place. Sonic and Tails must team up with Sonic Mania Plus’ newest heroes, Mighty and Ray, in order to stop this robotic nemesis once and for all, restoring peace to Angel Island. Oh, and watch out for a surprise guest!
The series, which is written and directed by Tyson Hesse, has done remarkably well, garnering over 15 million views globally on YouTube since its premiere. If you missed out on any of the episodes, you can catch up on them here in one full shot!
We’ll be reviewing Sonic Mania Plus a little later today. But for the time being, here’s all the features you can expect from the game. Not to mention that it’s only $30!
