Rejoice, every one of you who hate digital only games. Sonic Mania Plus is going retail, letting you finally play a great modern Sonic title.

Yes, this retail version is a tangible game you can hold, display and love. But it’s so much more! It’s not kidding around with the “Plus” moniker. New modes including competition and encore modes will make the game new, even if you’ve already beaten it. Plus, retro fan favorites Mighty Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel are fully playable. Even better, each game box comes with a reversible cover, so you can play it off as a Genesis game.

Plus, there’s even a 32 page art book to thumb through. Sonic Mania Plus comes out on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One on August 28 and is available for pre-order on Amazon for $29.99. Prime members get an additional 20% off at checkout, meaning you get it for $23.99.
