Media: Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing - Launch Trailer, Bonuses, Footage, Stock Problems, and Ryo Haz

The day has finally arrived, and Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is now officially available for sale. So if you've played Mario Kart to death and are looking for something fresh to tide you over until the next iteration comes out, give this one a look. To commemorate the launch, SEGA has released this newest of trailers: Direct Link Unfortunately, not everyone has had luck in getting their hands on a copy. While certainly, "launch day" often differs for video games from other industries by meaning "the day we ship it out," TSSZ News reports that "Several accounts have been given about major retailers like Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Gametop and even Target, who advertised availability of the Wii and DS versions by 8AM today in its Sunday flyer, instead not having any copies for sale."

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing News & Info Blowout

The time is nigh, as Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is scheduled to drift its way onto retail shelves tomorrow. Even so, there's quite a bit of info in today's update. For starters, if you'll recall a certain trailer from about a week ago, it featured some people playing the PlayStation 3 version of the title with a wheel attachment. More about that has now been revealed, as The Sonic Stadium reveals GAME's Spanish website now has a PS3 bundle which includes an officially licensed wheel to help aid the game's Sixaxis controls. So far, the deal only seems to be in Spain, but we'll let you know if it spreads elsewhere. Read More

Amazon.com Offering Discount on Mario Kart DS

There has been an awful lot of talk about Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing around here lately. I should know-- I'm the one responsible for the vast majority, if not the entirety of it. But supposing that you have not been persuaded by the charms of Sonic, Ulala, Ryo, and all the rest. Perhaps you feel that there is and shall always be one and only one true kart racer, Mario Kart. In that case, assuming you don't have it already, this deal is for you. Mario Kart DS, often hailed as the best in the series (and it features R.O.B., so those claims are not unwarranted), is now available on Amazon.com for the low, low price of $27.99, 30 percent/twelve dollars off the regular price, with no tax in most states. And it comes with free Super Saver shipping-- you can't really beat that. Of course, you may already have the game, so why not grab it as a gift for someone you know? Racing is more fun with a friend, and odds are they'd get tired of being stuck with Shy Guys in ad-hoc mode. Read More

Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing Receiving a Price Cut Already?

Launch day for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is still over a month away, but that apparently has not stopped retailers across North America from slashing their prices on the game. TSSZ reports that GameStop has the high definition versions of the title marked down to $49.99, versus the normal $59.99. But Nintendo isn't being left out of the fun, either; the Wii version is priced lower still at $39.99 (versus $49.99 before) while the DS version is riding at $29.99. Joining in the price-cutting fun is Toys R Us, who has the same price points across the board. Walmart, on the other hand, has only brought down the HD versions, making all three console versions the same price (DS is $29.82). As for the United Kingdom, there is no word yet whether or not a similar drop will take effect, but we're crossing our fingers for you. Read More

Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing Website (Inadvertently) Reveals Tons of New Info

SEGA has launched its new official website for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, and just like so many before them, they have underestimated the resourcefulness of the internet, thus leading to a bunch of new information that they really had no intention of letting us see yet. Perhaps someday these companies will learn, but today is not that day. One mistake which didn't require any hacking to find, however, was the appearance of Virtua Fighter's Akira under All-Star moves. Read More

Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing Dev Diary "Censored," Europe/Australia Release Date Confirmed

The news just isn't stopping for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, but I have little complaint over that. Today, however, the two new pieces of info are a little lower-key. First, if you'll recall yesterday's story, Executive Producer Steve Lycett of Sumo Digital had posted a developer diary to the SEGA blogs which seemed as though it was ready to drop some hints about the upcoming title, but then pulled away at the last moment. Today, Lycett has said that his writing had been "censored." Read More

Media: Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing - Knuckles Gameplay and Roster Info, Plus Clues to Solve

We've had a few updates regarding Sumo Digital's Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing as of late, but it seems a couple more details managed to fall through the cracks. But worry not, we plan to follow this one all the way to the finish line. First up, a new cam video of Knuckles racing through Seaside Hill and showing off his All-Star move as a member of the development team explains how the game works: I love the shock with which he says "...he punched a Chao!" I'll bet that's going to wind up happening a lot. The above comes courtesy of UK website TFMX via tssz|news, who explains how such a clear video was able to be captured, and why there aren't more out there. Read on for updates about the roster, and SEGA's own clues as to who will be revealed next. Read More

Media: Everybody's Super Sonic Racing with Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing

SEGA is a very weird, wild drug. With so many of their games, it makes one want to swear them off for good, but then you see what they're cooking up next, and it's hard not to get into a state of mind where you're all "Aww, okay... we'll give you one more chance!" Hence, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. It's not new territory for Sonic, as anyone who remembers Sonic Drift can attest, and it seems to be a sort of follow-up to the theme of SEGA Superstars Tennis, as it will be featuring SEGA characters from outside the Sonic franchise, as well as within. Sonic, Tails, Eggman, Amy Rose (in a vehicle similar to her Sonic R car), AiAi, and Amigo are the only five named so far, but I wouldn't be surprised if we see a roster similar to Superstars Tennis by the time it hits shelves. Check out the following trailer to get a taste of what's in store: " Video Games | Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing | European Debut TrailerXBox 360 | Playstation 3 | Nintendo Wii ...huh. They didn't focus much on the "All-Stars," did they? Hit the jump for the press release, images from our gallery, and more insight. Read More

Wii List for 2009 Released, Punch-Out!! Dated

Own a Wii and curious when some of the games you are looking forward to will be coming out this year? Well you've come to the right place. Nintendo has released its full list of games for 2009, and a little bit of info about the game that most people are excited for, Punch-Out!! Wii. Here's the official blurb about the game: "The core game mechanics revolve around the tactics of boxing, detecting and exploiting weaknesses in the opponent's defence. Punch-Out follows the story of Little Mac, an up-and-coming boxer from the Bronx, NY, on his way to becoming the boxing World Champion. The game includes various signature characters and the Wii Motion controls provide an intuitive & unique boxing experience." Press releases can make anything sound boring, don't you think? But that's not why you stopped anyway. Hit the jump for Nintendo's 2009 list. Read More

Wii 'the Most Expensive Board Game on Earth' says SEGA

Ouch. I thought SEGA and Nintendo were pretty chummy as of late, as the former has been providing the latter with what seems to be some of the best third-party support anyone could want: MadWorld, The Conduit, House of the Dead: Overkill, a version of Sonic Unleashed, and an additional exclusive Sonic game, for what the last two are worth. But then to hear something like this?I think on one hand the Wii has become the most expensive board game on Earth - it's the kind of thing that families will play at Christmas, and probably won't play again throughout the remainder of the year. So things like Wii Sports, Wii Fit to a certain extent, that's great. -- Darren Williams, Sega A&R's head of content, to GameIndustry.bizAt the same time, I don't think he's trying to dog Nintendo here at all, in spite of that statement. He's actually fairly supportive, in spite of what the market may show:Your point about a gateway, an entry point to gaming - certainly I think the Wii needs to have more titles. We've got two at Sega, but we're backing to attract us to the slightly older thirty-somethings that might hit nostalgia, and they'll feel they want to play House of the Dead: Overkill, and we've also got MadWorld. So we believe that the market is there and needs to be served. It's risky because new markets don't exist unless somebody goes to make them, so that's what we're backing. ... But it will be interesting to see what Nintendo does with the Wii 2 - how they choose to combat Sony and Microsoft, because they've obviously won through with the input methodology, but where do they go next? The fact that we don't know, but Nintendo probably does, is why it's the biggest company in Japan. -- Darren Williams, Sega A&R's head of content, to GameIndustry.bizSo far, the Wii has been something of a vicious cycle: A lack of traditional games leads fewer traditional gamers to want to pick up and play the system, thus causing the few that exist to suffer, thus making fewer developers want to make those kinds of games, which in turn makes fewer traditional gamers want to go for it. How does it end? Read More
