Trap Tower Revealed for Mania Plus via OST Tracklist

Trap Tower Revealed for Mania Plus via OST Tracklist

by May 11, 2018 11 comments

It would appear Sega, Taxman, Stealth, and the Sonic Mania Team have at least one more significant surprise in store for players of Sonic Mania Plus when it launches in July: A new pinball-themed bonus stage.

A release of the full 2CD soundtrack listing for the Japanese editions of Plus via Mania’s Japanese website reveals four new pieces of music to be included, one of which is described as Trap Tower: a pinball bonus stage.

It should be noted, in keeping with the revival of SegaSonic the Hedgehog arcade characters Mighty and Ray, Trap Tower is also a callback to the AM3-developed platformer. Trap Tower is the final arcade version’s fourth stage, which you can watch in action below. There is no indication so far as to whether this new stage will have a similar look, feel, or style to Trap Tower, which was originally executed in isometric 3D.

We’ll keep you updated on any releases or new information regarding this new addition ahead of Plus’s July release.

    Can Sega just get it together and get green hill zone, chemical plant and oil ocean on their soundtracks?

    Those remixes are so good.

      It’s not so much them ‘getting it together’. Those tracks are still owned by the original composers Dreams Come True. They may be allowed to put the music is the games without too much drama, but selling it on an OST would mean having to pay extra royalties to the band and may make for a legal nightmare.

      That’s the likely reason we aren’t seeing them on the offical OSTs.

        I know, I know. I wish Sega would just do it though because I would like to buy the soundtrack complete. If they are worried about the legality they need to stop bring back green hill zone and chemical plant in every game.

          Yeah I mean if that’s the case, why did they still feature Green Hill and Chemical Plant’s remixes in the Generations OST (along with Casino Night’s)? By this logic they should have been omitted as well, yet they still got to sold those remixes. What, did they just randomly decide they don’t like paying people anymore? Did the guy just decide he suddenly cares enough to demand money for those tracks now? What the hell changed in the last 7 years to make this an issue?

    Well that didn’t stop them from putting them in Generation’s OST, so what’s the change here? XP

      Was Generation OST a free CD bonus come with the game (like this one)? Or did we have to buy it separately?

        Pretty sure you had to buy separately, unless you got a special collector’s edition or something. But yeah, both the physical and iTunes release kept the Green Hill, Chemical Plant, and Casino Night remixes in there. I don’t know what could have changed since then.
