    Well, teased, really. Just shown at SXSW.

    Teaser

    No platforms, or anything, really, announced yet.

    Loved sonic racing transformed... although towards the latter stages the AI was stupidly overpowered and rubberbanding was frustrating.

    The way that R was highlighted was almost certainly a reference to Sonic R.

    Yeah, it did get a bit too tough towards the end. Played fantastically though, and was dripping with Sega fanservice.

    Looking forward to seeing more about this one - Sumo should be back on dev duties.

    EDIT If the soundtrack is even half as good as Sonic R's it'll be one the best soundtracks in gaming.

    "Cheese-tastic" is probably the best word I can think of to describe the Sonic R soundtrack.

    In any way, I'm wagering that it'll be a hybrid of R and All-Stars Racing, so a combination of vehicular, airborne and on-foot racing.

    It is absolute top-tier cheddar. It's great.

    Sweet! Transformed was a real good surprise last gen for me.
  • Deleted user 16 March 2018 22:56:09
    I could go for some more of this. As Sparra said the last one was a nice surprise, and I'll add a genuine MK contender.

    I keep meaning to buy Transformed for my kids to play but it never seems to on sale, hopefully itíll be on sale soon to drum up interest the new release.

    I really like the look of cartoony style 3D graphics on current tech, it looks amazing. So looking forward to seeing a new Sonic racing game.

    Unless Sumo Digital are involved, I ain't really interested. Since the demise of Bizarre, Sumo racers have been the only game in town.

    Ahem...Nintendo?

    Well all I can say is....

    Everybody Super Sonic Racing
    Try to keep your feet right on the ground.
    When you're Super Sonic Racing
    There's no time to look around.

    On a serious note this is not a sequel so I believe it's nothing to do with Sonic R or All Stars Racing. This could be a new racing experience but no idea yet.

    What's the betting that it's actually called "Super Sonic Racing"?

    Please let it be a new Transformed! We have had a severe lack of fun/arcade racers over the past few years - outside of anything involving Mario.

    I'd love to see a few guys from Yakuza included - a Majima controlled cart would be aces!

    Just to point out, people figured out that a new Sonic Racing game was coming because info leaked out that Sumo were working on a karting game.

    I bet it's a new Transformed game, except that it will only feature Sonic characters.

    Essentially, Sonic R 2 with karts, hopefully good this time. I'll praise its soundtrack before anybody else, but Sonic R was a terrible, terrible game.

    If it's a Sumo game I won't even bother waiting for reviews. 😃

    If this doesn't have a Sonic R-level soundtrack, I'm out.

    So that teaser was shadows car and not the ferrari i wished for.
    Will definitely buy this, but i will miss all the non sonic stuff in transformed too.

    Still want Outrun 3 desperately though.

    Yeah, I'll be sad that all the Sega fanservice stuff is gone, as that was a big draw for me in the prior games.

    Still though. It's a Sumo racer.

    Day one.

    But in its place, there will be Sonic fanservice stuff.

    Rejoice.

    With only 15 character spots, someone will have to be cut. It will probably be Cream. Sorry, Ror.

    I'm sure the roster will fill out with the inevitable release of Team Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing Transformed EX + alpha
