Well it seems SEGA has been busy with the announcement of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing coming 2010 to all the major formats, except for the psp (a shame really since I wouldn’t mind playing it on the psp). I’ll let you guys figure out what its about, but I will give you a video to help.

So is this the “huge Surprise” that was coming Friday that SEGA claimed yesterday? Well for a start its not Friday, and while this is a bit of a surprise to me, it doesn’t fall into the huge surprise category, so in a word no this is not what SEGA was hinting at on Wednesday, but I guess we will find out for certain tomorrow, till then enjoy the trailer.  More info after the jump.

Oh and as an extra note, TSS and TSSZ fail, since they haven’t picked up on this yet, SEGA Nerds however are made of epic win!

EDIT: Just checked my inbox where I found a nice press release (see below) and a link to the SEGA product page, check it out!


Get ready for the ultimate racing showdown with Sonic and his SEGA friends!

LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (May 28th, 2009) – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® America, Inc., today announced Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, a fast and furious battle to the finish line in this supercharged racer.  Developed for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, the home video game system, Wii™ and the Nintendo DS™ system, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing will speed into stores in early 2010.

In a frantic battle to the chequered flag, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing sees Sonic and friends speed around tracks set in mediaeval castle ramparts, lush rainforests and bustling cities, all taken from the visually rich and varied universes of Sonic and SEGA.  Fan favourites such as Dr. Eggman, Tails, AiAi, Amigo and many more will join Sonic in their custom built vehicles, revving their engines and jostling to stay ahead of the pack.  Each character will race around the track in cars, planes, motorbikes, and in AiAi’s case – a banana mobile!  Secret short cuts, swift handling and avoiding strategically placed obstacles are certainly the best way to get to the top of the podium.

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is no ordinary racing game.  Its huge variety of characters and vehicles, plus the ability to play both online and off set it apart from other games of this type” commented Gary Knight European Marketing Director, SEGA Europe Ltd. The team have pushed the boundaries on what you would normally expect and created a different and unique party racing title whereby you really can’t take anything for granted!”

And winning is only part of the fun in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing!  Each character has a specific All Star move such as Super Sonic, Banana Blitz and Tails Tornado, allowing a quick way for competitors to get back into the race!  Power ups and weapons can also be collected around the tracks and used against the opposition to ensure they don’t become a threat to that number one position… Players can battle it out in single or multiplayer mode, allowing up to four friends to race in frantic split-screen action, or up to eight players to compete online in the ultimate racing showdown.

Can Amigo scramble Dr. Eggman?  Will AiAi say bye-bye to Tails? Are you gonna be faster than Sonic?  The race will start in 2010…
