  1. July 22nd… one year ago on that day will mark the anniversary of everyone’s knowledge of Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces existence!

  2. Hopefully there will be some news about the Archie comics. By now it seems that the comics are gone and I am interested in news about refunds.

    1. For what it’s worth, Ian was at the Colorado Comic-Con a week ago and I asked him if there was any update on that. He said the official word is “Sega and Archie are still discussing things”. So… Don’t lean too far either way.

  3. Hopefully some Forces info which is obviously likely by then and during the event also more development stories for it!

  4. Always nice to hear news about Mania. I’m proud of the development team for what they’ve done and I like many others have enjoyed what I’ve played and seen if the game. Hope all the best for the game’s release and the team’s future projects.
