The race is on for Team Sonic and Team Dark in SEGA’s E3 2018 trailer for Team Sonic Racing! The trailer, which comes nearly two weeks after the teaser trailer showing Sonic and Shadow going head-to-head following Walmart’s leak of the game’s title, offers an in-depth look at some of the tracks that the fair-playing will be racing in, ranging from Wisp Circuit to what appears to be an aerial view of Spagonia in all its balloon-laden glory.
Developed by Sumo Digital, the team behind the Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing series, Team Sonic Racing will allow players to play either solo or within teams of up to 12 members online (4 offline) in various single and multiplayer modes, including Grand Prix, Time Travel and Team Adventure. Teammates will also work together with new features, such as Item Transfer, Skim Boost and Slingshot.
Players can even pimp their rides (rapper slang for “vehicle customization,” in case you didn’t watch MTV’s Pimp My Ride) to suit their racing style. Unfortunately, a multi-platform game does not a cross-platformer make, as PS4 gamers cannot race their Switch-playing friends, and Xbox One players cannot challenge PC gamers and vice versa in multiplayer races.
Also, Crush 40, every Sonic fan’s favorite rock band, is returning to spice up the race with new music.
Team Sonic Racing will be racing to the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam this winter. Pre-order now!
