Sega teased the possibility of a new “Sonic Racing” game via their Twitter account back in March and it seems that they are now ready to show the full thing. The company heavily hunted during an official live stream that some news is coming soon.

Sega will release the news soon

Sega PR’s Aaron Webber stated they knew a lot of people were waiting for news and information and that people were curious about their previous teaser. He went on to say that people should get ready and that more information is on the horizon.

While ‘horizon’ isn’t a clear date or anything, with E3 just around the corner it makes sense that we will see something either before or during that event.

While Webber didn’t confirm that it was a "Sonic Racing" game the revving engines and large "R" in the shot mean it is pretty much a sure thing.

The same event in March was where Sega announced the release of “Sonic Mania Plus.” This is a physical re-release of 2017 well-received 2D Sonic game. This version of the game includes bonus content including a new Encore mode and two additional playable characters - Ray and Mighty.

Other 'Sonic Racing' games

The first “Sonic Racing” game called “Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing” was originally released back in 2010 and most major consoles including Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. The game was developed by Sumo Digital and published by Sega and Gameloft created the mobile version.

A sequel to this game was released in 2012 called “Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed” and it once again released on all major consoles including PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Windows, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, iOS and Android. The game was once again developed by Sumo Digital.

Each “Sonic Racing” game is a kart racer in the style of “Mario Kart.” They feature characters from various Sega franchises and players race to reach the finish line.

Prominent franchises in each game are “Sonic The Hedgehog,” Jet Set Radio,” and “Space Channel 5.” There is no news as to which franchises will appear in this latest game, but Sonic characters are a given.

In “Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed” players could transform their karts into other vehicles including boats and planes.

This gave the games a whole new dimension as well as the way of controlling your chosen racer.

With E3 getting closer and closer, we can expect more and more video game news as well as information about this announcement. However, thanks to previous teases we more or less know what this game is going to be.
