SEGA has unveiled a brand gameplay video revealing a brand new area for the upcoming Sonic Mania. Green Hill Zone Act 2 in hindsight is based on the original stage—clearly—yet Act 2 is granted to be much more expanded, although, with its familiar aesthetics, the stage adds new mechanics, obstacles, and nearby secrets to uncover.

One new cool feature is the use of a fire-shield. Once equipt, you’re allowed to run over bridges, and as the bridge burns a new reveal access will be shown. Although careful upon touching water, you’ll automatically lose the shield.

SEGA also revealed a new series of bosses called “Hard-Boiled Heavies”. These particular enemies are part of the Eggman’s crew and each with their own special ability which makes them unique in battle. One in particular, is named “Heavy Gunner” (image below), this one appears at the end of the Hollywood-inspired Studiopolis Act 1. Heavy Gunner comes equipt with a rocket launcher and can take to the sky with his chopper which allows him to rain down missiles onto Sonic.

The publisher also stated the following:

Sonic Mania is the ultimate celebration of past and future, blending Genesis-era Sonic platforming with New Zones, Powerful Bosses, and 3 Playable Characters, all presented at a gorgeous 60 FPS. In the span of 25 years, Sonic has collected countless rings across various Zones, and Sonic Mania revisits what it was that first made Sonic great, all while building upon that foundation and giving old and new fans alike an experience that will leave them smiling.
