Sonic And Friends Set To Race On Land, Air, And Water

If you're a fan of Sonic and all his friends, and you enjoy lighthearted yet wildly entertaining racing experiences, pay attention.

Sega Europe and Sega of America have announced Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, which will feature Sonic the Hedgehog and a stellar cast, all of whom will compete "across land, air and water in vehicles that fully transform from cars, to planes to boats." The game will land on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Vita, and 3DS later this year.

Popular characters such as Dr. Eggman, AiAi, Gilius Thunderhead, and Vyse will race around "brand new dynamic environments and tracks;" the settings will range from Super Monkey Ball's Temple Trouble to Panzer Dragoon's Dragon Canyon, which will toss you into the sky and give you complete control of your plane.

Said Global Sonic Brand Director David Corless:

"Given the fantastic feedback we received from critics and consumers alike for the first game we really wanted to push the boundaries on our follow up game, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The transforming vehicles allow us to do this – as well as drifting your car around the corners of a track, you get to fly your plane and pilot your boat against others all within one race. Add to this a grid full of star characters, retro IP, fun, fast race modes and cool tracks and racing fans of all ages are sure to love this one!"

The new effort will also see the All-Star moves return along with a new mechanic that lets your All-Star bar power up faster if you race daringly and stylishly. We'll also get an all-new fair weapon system, which is designed to insure that weapons fired at your vehicle can either be blocked or evaded once you're acquired the requisite skills. Sounds like tons of fun!

The concept of Sonic in a car still seems immoral to me. I know it's bad that I cannot look past that, but I really can't.
