The Sonic series of kart racing games have become one of the most beloved entries as it’s easily the best kart racing game available on your platform of choice unless you own a Nintendo console with Mario Kart. This very month Xbox One gold members can download the incredible Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, which is likely in preparation for the next game in the series – Team Sonic Racing.
Sega has slowly but surely released new details on Sonic’s next game. It was recently officially revealed via a short intro sequence that had Sonic and Shadow pulling out of the garage in their smart new karts. Until now we have had nothing of substance. Below you’ll find the first gameplay video that shows off Tails, Sonic, Shadow, Knuckles and Amy all participating on an unknown circuit. Unfortunately, there are no kart transformations this time around, but it seems that you will be able to perform tricks off ramps to gain a boost (very reminiscent of Rumble Racing on the PS2). Weapon pickups still play a part and you’ll see the contestants causing all sorts of havoc along with expected cheesy one-liners.
There is only one thing I’m a little concerned about – it looks very slow. Hopefully, there are different classes that speed up the more you progress in the game.
Expect to see and hear more about this from E3 next week.
