After several rumors and a teaser, SEGA has finally unveiled Team Sonic Racing, the new racing title dedicated to the fastest blue porcupine in the world. Waiting to see it finally in action, Aaron Webber, PR and social manager of the Japanese company, has unveiled some details about the game on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Youtube channel.
Webber, first of all, made it clear that Team Sonic Racing is not a direct sequel to Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Far from it, “it will be very, very different” and will include “very interesting mechanics”. Unfortunately, it has not gone very far on the subject, but then added that in the new title there will be many characters in the Sonic universe, more than they have ever been included in the previous racing titles.
Subsequently, he gave an answer to a question that has been asked of him for a long time, since Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing 2010: how Sonic is racing in a car? So we’re going to set the record straight just in case. If he’s not in a car guys, the race is over before it’s begun. You know this. You know he’s fast. He’s faster than cars, so we gotta equalize the playing field. So please, spread the word if you see anyone curious why he’s in a car, there you go,” in this way, it can compete on a par with all the others.
We take this opportunity to remind you that Team Sonic Racing will be available in physical and digital version starting this winter on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, and exclusively in digital format on PC. It will offer a multiplayer mode for up to 12 players in a team competition, 14 different offensive and defensive Wisps, an Adventure Mode and more.
