May 28, 2009
RACE TO THE WINNER’S CIRCLE WITH SONIC & SEGA ALL-STARS RACING
Get ready for the ultimate racing showdown with Sonic and his SEGA friends!
SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® America, Inc., today announced Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, a fast and furious battle to the finish line in this supercharged racer. Developed for the Xbox 360®, the Wii™, PLAYSTATION®3 and the Nintendo DS™., Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing will speed into stores in early 2010.
In a frantic battle to the checkered flag, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing sees Sonic and friends speed around tracks set in medieval castle ramparts, lush rainforests and bustling cities, all taken from the visually rich and varied universes of Sonic and SEGA. Fan favorites 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 race 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.
“Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is a truly unique experience. ” said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. “In addition to being a spectacular party racing title that can be played both online and off, it reacquaints fans with the world of SEGA and its legendary characters.”
And 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, allowing 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. Players can 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 going to be faster than Sonic? The race will start in 2010. For more information please visit: www.sega.com/sonicracing.
