Not content with its persistent whoring of the Sonic license on consoles, handhelds and mobiles, SEGA of America has announced the development of Sonic Riders, the hoverboard racer, on PC.

Brace yourselves for "an electrifying ride" through 13 courses either in single player or with that someone special in 2-player mode. Marvel at the incredible array of collectibles, pick-ups and bonus items, and whoop with joy as you fly past the opposition and win the tournament.

Of course, if Tom's console review is anything to go by, you'll also be wrapped in wonder at what the hell is going on with the on-screen icons and how on earth you turn corners without crashing for a good while too.

Still, according to SEGA of America's VP of marketing, Scott A. Steinberg, "Sonic Riders adds a new and exciting dimension to PC racing games," which sounds quite nice really.

Sonic Riders on PC is set for release later this year, just in time for Santa to empty it onto your floor from his magic sack.
