3DS/Vita/PC Version of ASR: Transformed Delayed

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Steve Lycett from Sumo Digital has confirmed a delay on the 3DS, PS Vita and PC versions of Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed. SEGA had originally slated the release for November 16th but Lycett has said:

“Given we’re still working on it, 16th November UK release is unlikely. I think SEGA either have or are due to announce the handheld dates over here, they’re slightly later than the home console versions.”

So sad times if you wanted to get those versions on November 16th. More on this story when SEGA decide to announce the corrected dates.

Steve Lycett Answers Fan Questions on Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Steve Lycett, executive producer at Sumo Digital as been very busy answering a lot of fan-proposed questions at the Sonic Stadium Message Board. We’ve also learnt some new things about the game from his answers:

– The game uses a new engine called the Sumo Engine which allows for dynamic lighting
– The vehicle transforms into either a plane or a boat for water and flying sections. This script-driven and cannot be done manually
– All the new tracks are completely original and are not variations on a theme (like all the various Seaside Hill stages in the original game)
– Online play hasn’t been confirmed for PC but HEAVILY hinted at
– Sumo are attempting to impliment all-star moves for online play
– Sumo have approached SEGA in regards to releasing a soundtrack for the game
– The game will run at 30fps
– There will be a much wider array of powerups
– The 3DS version will not be running the Sumo Engine and will be built from the group up. Sumo are aiming to make this version as close to the other versions as possible
– Sumo are trying to impliment dynamically changing music which changes depending on what is happening in the race
– The ‘first place attack weapon’ drops items in the way of the person in first position which they then have to avoid. It doesn’t attack them head on with no means of defence (think the infamous Mario Kart blue shell)
