Everybody will soon be SUPER SONIC RACING again!

The slightly cumbersome name for this is “Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing“. Presumably calling it “Sonic R 2” was deemed too much of a sales deathwhish even for the SEGA of today.

We have already despatched several emails regarding the availability of Richard Jacques for soundtrack duties.

If Jacques isn’t on-board it will be the greatest TRAVESTY of the modern gaming era. Or at least the greatest travesty since Sonic the Hedgehog 2006.

It also won’t be the same without huge chunks of scenery appearing two feet away from your character’s body.

CVG says it’s being handled by Sumo Digital, so it ought to be a solid 7/10 at least. There’s a video of it on that web site about videos.


In a frantic battle to the chequered flag, Sonic and friends speed around tracks set in mediaeval castle ramparts, lush rainforests and bustling cities, all taken from the visually rich and varied universes of Sonic and SEGA. Fan favourites such as Dr. Eggman, Tails, AiAi, Amigo and many more will join Sonic in their custom built vehicles, revving their engines and jostling to stay ahead of the pack. Each character will speed around the track in cars, planes, motorbikes, and in Aiai’s case – a banana mobile! Secret short cuts, swift handling and avoiding strategically placed obstacles are certainly the best way to get to the top of the podium…

But winning is only part of the fun in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing! Each character has a specific All Star move – such as Super Sonic, Banana Blitz and Tails Tornado – that allows a quick way for competitors to get back into the race! Power ups and weapons can also be collected around the tracks and used against the opposition to ensure they don’t become a threat to that number one position.

Battle it out in single or multiplayer mode, allowing up to four friends to race in frantic split-screen action, or up to eight players to compete online in the ultimate racing showdown.

Can Amigo scramble Dr. Eggman? Will AiAi say bye-bye to Tails? Are you gonna be faster than Sonic? The race will start in 2010…
