SEGA has revealed that Sonic Mania will feature a Competition Mode where players can go head to head using either Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles. The company also released a gameplay video that showcases this new game mode.
In Competition mode your speed and how fast you beat a level isn't everything. Winners are determined by several factors including clear time, score from defeating enemies, number of items acquired, number of rings held upon clearing a level, and total number of rings acquired throughout the level. Players also have the option to adjust the rules of each match.
Sonic Mania releases on the 15th of August on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch.
