The Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed wiki last edited by NeoJedi_Knight on 02/27/14 05:34PM View full history

Overview

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a racing game developed by Sumo Digital and published by Sega for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 18, 2012. It was later released for the Wii U (as a launch title on November 22, 2012), PlayStation Vita (on December 18, 2012), PC (via Steam on January 31, 2013), and Nintendo 3DS (on February 12, 2013), with iOS and Android versions currently in development.

The sequel to Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, this Sega-themed racer adds a variety of new characters, levels, and gameplay mechanics (most notably the ability to transform into three different types of transportation: landcraft, watercraft, and aircraft). While the game adds new characters from previous Sega games (including Gilius Thunderhead from the Golden Axe series and Vyse from Skies of Arcadia), it also adds a variety of guest characters which vary depending on the game platform (with the exception of both Ralph from the Wreck-It Ralph film and real-life NASCAR racer Danica Patrick).
