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

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018

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! (more…)

Retro-Bit SEGA Controllers to Launch in November 2018, Dreamcast Controllers Absent from Launch Line-Up

Sunday, August 19th, 2018

Retro-Bit’s new line of fully licensed SEGA controllers for consoles and PCs have been given a formal release date of November 2018. The controllers will be featured at Gamescom 2018, specifically at Game Outlet Booth #A041 in Hall 04.2 of the Koelnmesse Convention Center from the 21st to the 25th of August 2018. Below is the full list of controllers that Retro-Bit are planning to showcase for launch in November:

  • Genesis Wired 6-Button Original Port Controller (Black, Clear Blue)
  • Genesis Wired 8-Button USB® Port Controller (Black, Clear Blue)
  • Genesis Bluetooth® Controller (Black)
  • Genesis Bluetooth® Receiver
  • Megadrive Wired 6-Button Original Port Controller (Black, Clear Blue)
  • Megadrive Wired 8-Button USB® Port Controller (Black, Clear Blue)
  • Megadrive Bluetooth® Controller (Black)
  • Megadrive Bluetooth® Receiver
  • Saturn Wired Original Port Controller (Black, Slate Grey)
  • Saturn Wired USB® Port Controller (Black, Slate Grey)
  • Saturn Bluetooth® Controller (Black)
  • Saturn Bluetooth® Receiver

As you can see, the previously announced Dreamcast controllers are no longer listed, even after previously being showcased at CES 2018. Could the Dreamcast controllers be coming later? Retro-Bit’s press release does mention that the controllers listed above are a part of the “first line” of controllers, so it could be the case that the Dreamcast controllers come in the second line.
