Additionally, Sega also shared some details on a new boss in Sonic Mania. Part of Eggman’s “Hard-Boiled Heavies” arsenal, the “Heavy Gunner” is armed with a rocket launcher and appears at the end of the Hollywood-inspired Studiopolis Act 1. This enemy is described as “a large, decorated robot who can take to the sky with his helicopter.”
Sonic Mania will be digitally available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in Spring 2017.
