When it came to marketing, the Sonic Mania team managed to dip into the past just as much as they did with the game itself. The game’s Collector’s Edition saw a “rare” commercial unearthed and now for the physical release that is Sonic Mania Plus Sega’s decided to run it back.

Inspired by an old, existing commercial from the peak of the Super Nintendo versus Genesis days, this time instead of taking shots at Mario it’s throwing generic first person shooters under the bus.

Do yourself a favor and make like the kid in this commercial and be ready to either pick up Sonic Mania Plus, or update your existing digital copy of Sonic Mania, starting tomorrow. After all, you’re a serious gamer too, right?

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
