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…)

Team Sonic Racing E3 Trailer Released, Reveals Theme Song “Green Light Ride” by Crush 40

Monday, June 11th, 2018

A new trailer has been released for Team Sonic Racing, showing off some fancy CG and gameplay footage. In particular we get a look at a few of the characters you’ll be able to play as, such as Rouge the Bat and Omega, as well as the second stage to be confirmed – Spagonia from Sonic Unleashed.

We also get an extended listen to the music from the first trailer, revealing it’s an all new vocal track from Crush 40! According to Jun Senoue’s personal Twitter account, the track is titled “Green Light Ride.” It’s nice to see Crush 40 return to their roots somewhat – amongst the first games they ever scored was SEGA’s NASCAR Arcade!

The game is still currently pencilled in for a Winter release. The game is also playable at E3, but seemingly the demo is the same as the one used for previews a week or two ago.

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

SEGA and Atlus have revealed their plans for E3, including what’ll be playable on the show floor. They’ve also hinted at a few announcements.

The following games will be playable on the show floor:

  • Team Sonic Racing, the new racing title from Sumo Digital.
  • Shining Resonance Refrain, the Shining series’ return to the West after a decade and a remaster of Shining Resonance.
  • Valkyria Chronicles 4, the latest in SEGA’s beloved strategy series.
  • Yakuza Kiwami 2, a remake of Yakuza 2.

In addition, Atlus will be announcing two new titles tomorrow (June 7th). Gematsu has discovered a directory on Atlus’ site that suggests these are Western releases for Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night, which were recently released in Japan. These titles will also be playable on the floor.

Total War: Three Kingdoms from SEGA Europe will be at E3, but won’t be playable. Atlus will also be debuting a trailer for Catherine: Full Body on the show floor, a remake of the original PS3 climbing-blocks-em-up.

SEGA will also be streaming throughout the event, across YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook. Overall, it’s looking to be a fairly packed E3 for SEGA fans! Now if only SEGA AGES were there…

    New Sonic Racing Title Teased at SXSW Sonic Panel

    Friday, March 16th, 2018

    A short teaser trailer revealed at the SXSW Sonic panel appears to be hinting at the release of a new Sonic racing game.

    The trailer features some images of a car that looks suspiciously like Sonic’s car from Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing before revealing a logo that is partially obscured. The logo appears to read “Sonic Racing” but it’s only the ‘R’ that’s illuminated; a nice little nod to 1997 Sonic racer, Sonic R.

    There are no other details on this title available at this time, although it has been heavily rumoured that Sumo Digital are leading development on the title.
