Media: Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing - Six Wii Screens and Racetrack News

A lot of news about the tracks of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing today. Making the rounds with a bit of buzz is a preview from Hooked Gamers which purports that one track is from Phantasy Star Online. However, Sonic Stadium reports that Producer Steve Lycett stated on their forums "I'm not sure which track they're talking about - but it's not a PSO one. They've likely seen a Final Fortress stage :P" Read More

Further Evidence Surfaces for Banjo in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing

A couple of weeks ago, we came upon the rumor that Rare's famed bear 'n bird duo, Banjo and Kazooie, might be present in the Xbox 360 version of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. Now, further proof has arisen, this time seemingly from SEGA's very own website. The evidence, such as it is, lies before you at your right. The box art for the Xbox 360 version of the game had been posted, but has since apparently been taken down. TSSZ, who broke the story, notes "You may notice that all the links to Sega's side of things are broken–that's because Sega has removed the box art in question. Something is up." They posted the above image, adding "it does appear legitimate." Read More

Rumor: Banjo is Super Sonic Racing? Plus Other News

Via GoNintendo, the above piece of artwork comes from one Chris Lewis, who is said to be developing the box art and promotional materials for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. As you can see, there is an image of Banjo and Kazooie from Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts on the back of the packshot, which was said to be a work in progress. Read More

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Began with Sonic Running

For whatever reason, when the topic of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing comes up, the question that seems to inevitably get asked is why Sonic is driving a car instead of running. And while that would seem to be against the very spirit of a vehicle race, and is akin to asking why Bo Jackson didn't just use a baseball bat to send a football to the other end of the field back in the day, it so happens that Sonic was originally on foot when Sumo Digital began developing the game. Executive Producer Steve Lycett has made a blog post on the Sonic City Blognik which introduces the company to those who aren't familiar with it (and the fact it's not actually Japanese), and goes into how things started with All-Stars Racing once they had finished Superstars Tennis.

Media: Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing - 11 New Screens, 1st Wii Screens, and New Info

Good news, SEGA fans: Our Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing galleries for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 each have 11 new screenshots, featuring Ryo Hazuki in action and what appears to be Beat's All-Star move, among other fun stuff, such as the above. "Get off the road, Kidd!" In addition, the Wii gallery has a special bonus: the first four screenshots of that specific version. For whatever reason, they're actually significantly smaller than the rest of the screens, but still look pretty good.

Toejam & Earl Left Out of SEGA Superstars Tennis, Unlikely for All-Star Racing

So far, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing has had a pretty good line-up revealed so far, featuring a bevy of classic characters including AiAi, Beat, Alex Kidd, a good chunk of Sonic the Hedgehog's cast, and even some strong rumors of Ryo Hazuki. But what about Sonic's fellow Genesis stablemates, Toejam & Earl? They seem like a no-brainer, right? As it turns out, things aren't looking good for that duo. GoNintendo reveals that the duo were not only planned for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, but SEGA Superstars Tennis as well, but had to be left out. Why? Read on. Read More

Sumo Digital Panel for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing

The international Sonic convention known as "Summer of Sonic '09" was held last weekend, and in attendance were none other than Steve Lycett and Travis Ryan of Sumo Digital, who serve as the Executive Producer and Lead Designer, respectively, on the upcoming SEGA racing game Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. And not only did they attend, but they also hosted a panel in which a number of questions about the title would be answered, hopefully sating peoples' curiosity for just a little bit. 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

TGS 2008: New Xbox Experience Brings New Xbox Bundles

With the happier, friendlier New Xbox Experience on the way, what better way for Microsoft to welcome people into the Xbox family than to produce new bundles, packed full of family friendly games that will hopefully take some of the wind out of the Wii's sales make the system more accessible to anyone?To go with the new Xbox 360 experience, Microsoft today announced three new Xbox 360 bundles. All three will feature prominent Netflix advertising on the front, and all three will see the consoles packed in with free games. The Pro and Elite models will include Lego Indiana Jones and Kung-Fu Panda. Not a bad deal. The Arcade will come bundled with...Sega Superstar Tennis. It's free too, but...yeah. Nothankyou.jpg. -- KotakuC'mon, the game wasn't that bad, was it? Actually, from the looks of things, SEGA Superstar Tennis is only one of six games to come with the Arcade bundle. The rest are-- you guessed it-- Xbox Live Arcade games. Like... I can't read that. Or that. Or that either. But what about Uno? Who can hate Uno? And... Pac-man? Championship Edition? Come on! Who could hate any bundle that comes with that? Read More

Sumo Digital Talks SEGA Superstars Tennis

Nearly 10 years after Nintendo began cashing in on their vast wealth of characters in sports spin-offs, SEGA finally realized that they've got a pretty good library of characters for that sort of thing, too. And so it came to be that they would find themselves partnered with Sumo Digital to produce a tennis game across five platforms this March, each with its own unique attributes and full of classic SEGA goodness. CVG got a chance to sit down and chat about the title, and what can be expected from SEGA's foray away from the Virtua style of sporting-- specifically, the Wii version of the title, of course.
