Sega has revealed that Sonic Mania, the lauded latest 2D entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, has sold over one million copies.

The news comes from Japanese magazine Famitsu, which announced a Japanese version of Sonic Mania Plus, a re-release of Sonic Mania with new characters and new modes. Within the article, Sega says that Sonic Mania has sold over one million copies worldwide across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.

Additionally, Sega has confirmed that new Sonic Mania Plus details will come tomorrow, and a second animated short will arrive next week.

Our Take
The game has almost certainly done well enough for Sega's investment to be worth it, both in terms of sales and critical response. I feel like a Sonic Mania sequel is basically inevitable.
