I wonder if 1 million units sold is enough to make them want to continue making games like Mania?
I really thought they would have sold more copies than that. In any case in the future I will only be interested in Mania-like games when it comes to Sonic.
If a 2D Platformer selling 1 million and counting (I believe all digital and various collector's editions) isn't enough I'm not sure what Sega was expecting.
I mean it did sell less than Forces, which released 3 months later, reviewed nearly 30 points lower, and cost twice as much on release. I could easily see Sega being disappointed with Mania sales. Hopefully since it was developed by indie devs it has at least made a profit, and hopefully the physical release this summer sells well. Sega did hint at Mania 2 in the SXSW panel, hopefully it happens if the physical release sells well.
