Special Stages will make their return to the Sonic games in Sonic Mania when it launches next month, as SEGA also announces a special vinyl version of the game's soundtrack.

Both announcements were made during the "Sonic Mania: Behind the Scenes" panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday (22 July), which featured Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka and members of the Sonic Mania development team.

SEGA has released "Dimension Heist" - a music track from one of the Special Stages - on YouTube for fans to listen to (we've included it below); the piece was composed by Tee Lopes, who was present at the SDCC panel.

New details about the game's soundtrack vinyl were also revealed, including a choice of three different vinyl designs - the vinyl launches in September in the UK and can be pre-ordered at the Data Discs website.

Sonic Mania launches for Nintendo Switch on 15 August.
