A lot of people have been eagerly awaiting for some launch information about Sega's upcoming game Sonic Mania and now we have our answer. Sonic Mania will launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, and Nintendo Switch on August 15th for $19.99. Fans can also now pre-order the game digitally...except on the Switch. That's kind of strange in my opinion; you can pre-order the digital game on the PS4, Xbox One, and Steam, but not the Switch? I'll be honest though, pre-ordering a digital game isn't that big of a deal for me unless, for some reason, there's a limited number of digital keys to distribute, though honestly I don't get that situation either, but I digress.
