New Team Sonic Racing Details Emerge – Number of Tracks, New Character, New Track and More

Gamescom is currently on, and as such there’s been plenty of new information regarding the upcoming Sumo Digital racer Team Sonic Racing, from a variety of sources.

First of all, a new track has been shown to press, revealing Market Street – based on Sonic Unleashed’s Rooftop Run. It seems more based on the Generations iteration of the stage, with balloons and confetti abound.

Famitsu has also published a preview of the title, revealing the mysterious character seen on the game’s box art. His name is Dodonpa, and he’s apparently a suspicious but charismatic Tanuki who invites Sonic and co. to race. They also offered a brief look at the game’s story mode, which appears to have a similar map system to Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed’s World Tour mode. Cutscenes of some description are also in, though they appear to be basic textboxes with portraits a la Sonic Free Riders.

(We haven’t included the full scans of Famitsu due to it being a bit spotty legally, but they’re out there).

Finally, an IGN Stream has confirmed the number of tracks on offer. There’ll be 21 tracks, spread across 7 locations. This is similar to the original Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing, which had multiple tracks in say, Seaside Hill and Final Fortress from Sonic Heroes. Apparently the earliest game to be represented through tracks will be Sonic the Hedgehog 3 – although ingame signage has mentioned Green Hill Zone. On a more amusing note, you can make a team of the same character – so if you want a Big the Cat army, that’s a thing you can do.

Overall, there’s a hefty amount to digest here. We’ve included a gallery of Market Street screenshots from SEGA Press below (past the jump) – let us know what you think!

When Tracker isn’t playing SEGA games, he’s talking about SEGA games. Or drawing about SEGA games. Or being a student that does all of the above. You can also catch him over on Twitter.
