SEGA announces new Sonic racer

With Tails, AiAi, Amigo and others.

SEGA has announced Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing for DS, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii, due out in early 2010.

It sounds a bit like Diddy Kong Racing: SEGA characters including Sonic, Eggman, Tails, AiAi, Amigo and others race each other in cars, planes, motorbikes and, in AiAi's case, a banana mobile.

As well as the requisite shortcuts, obstacles, power-ups and weapons, there are also All Star moves for each character, including Super Sonic, Banana Blitz and Tails Tornado.

And if you don't want to play on your own you can engage in multiplayer for up to four people in split-screen or eight players online.
