As Sega prepares for the launch of Sonic Mania Plus this July, it is continuing its animated short series Sonic Mania Adventures. The first two episodes captured the hearts of fans, featuring charming animation and excellent musical remixes of classic Sonic tunes, and episode three is no different.
The third episode, appropriately titled “& Knuckles”, features everyone’s favorite red echidna, Knuckles, fulfilling his duties to Angel Island by guarding the Master Emerald. Since Sonic has returned to Angel Island following the events of Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, Knuckles has been fearing the worst, watching over the Master Emerald constantly to ensure that nobody gets their hands on it. Just as Knuckles thinks he’s found the perfect hiding spot, a mysterious figure appears from the shadows.
The Sonic Mania Adventures animated shorts are written and directed by Tyson Hesse, who was behind Sonic Mania’s beautiful animated trailers and opening animation. To watch the first two episodes of Sonic Mania Adventures, head here for Episode 1 and here for Episode 2.
And don’t forget Sonic Mania Plus will release on July 17th, 2018!
