Prepare to be overwhelmed with nostalgia.
Sega today revealed what players can expect from the Collector’s Edition of Sonic Mania, the recently announced new title in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, which looks to return the anthropomorphic speedster back to his 8-bit glory days.
Sega announced the news in a tweet, stating that the edition will only be available for “a limited time.”
The ‘piece de resistance’ of the package is undoubtedly the 12″ statue of Sonic himself, who sits atop a replica of the Sega Genesis console, complete with the Sega startup audio that would play whenever you used to boot up the system.
Also included is a collector’s card with a download key for the Sonic Mania game itself, and a Sega Genesis cartridge cast, found within which is a golden ring; one of the most recognizable collectibles from the Sonic franchise, and indeed video game history as a whole.
The whole bundle will be wrapped up in a vintage collector’s box, which looks reminiscent of the kind of packaging you might find from an original Sega Genesis game.
The Sonic Mania Collector’s Edition will be available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and you can already pre-order the item from the Sonic the Hedgehog website by clicking here.
You can also find it directly through online retailers, and Amazon currently has the product listed for the cool price of $70.
