SEGA Reveals Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed

By now, it’s common knowledge that Sonic is one fast hedgehog, but what if you want to make him faster? Why not give him a car, a boat or a jet…that seems to be what SEGA has in mind as the publisher has just lifted the lid off Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed.

As the name implies, Sonic’s vehicle can transform to suit what the situation needs. In the trailer, we can see Sonic’s car turn into a hovercar of some sort just as they were going downhill. I’m assuming that since this is a “mascot-racer,” we’ll be given items and other weapons to even the playing field.

Aside from Sonic, the trailer reveals his trusty sidekick Tails and his arch-enemy Dr. Robotnick joining the fray. You also get to see Beat from Jet Set Radio and the taxi from Crazy Taxi make an appearance…no doubt, this game will be littered with familiar SEGA characters — it is called SEGA All-Stars, after all.

Expect more details for the game to surface as we get nearer to E3.
