Team Sonic Racing will no longer release this year, as originally planned, Sega has announced. Instead, those that like their hedgehogs blue and their woodland animals fast will now need to wait until May 21st next year.
On Sonic the Hedgehog's 27th birthday (that big 3-0 is fast approaching!), Sega has detailed Team Rose for Team Sonic Racing.
Sega has unleashed a brand-new trailer for its upcoming animals-in-some-cars extravaganza Team Sonic Racing, offering a brisk cinematic deluge, alongside a tease of the new theme song - as crafted by some old friends.
Team Sonic and Team Dark fight for pole position in Sega's latest video, with the action unfurling, at least in part, across Wisp Circuit - one of the tracks that appeared online in gameplay form last week following early Team Sonic Racing previews. The sky-high glass track that pops up midway through, however, looks to be something new.
That new theme tune, by the way, is the work of Crush 40, the band responsible for all manner of music from past Sonic games - including Sonic Adventure's opening ditty, Open Your Heart. Let's be honest though - it's no Super Sonic Racing.
James Marsden will star in Sega's yes-it's-really-happening Sonic the Hedgehog film, Variety reports.
UPDATE: And it's official. Team Sonic Racing is coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One this winter, with Sumo Digital focussing on the Sonic universe in a racer that places an emphasis on playing as a team. It'll support 12 players online with four-player splitscreen on all formats, and will also feature customisation, Wisps borrowed from Sonic Colours that enable power-ups and an Adventure Mode for a single-player experience. 15 characters will be present at launch, and you'll be working in tandem with your team to win events. We'll have a little more in the not-too-distant future, but for now sate yourself with this announcement trailer.
