Sega revealed and began streaming a promotional video for its Team Sonic Racing game on Wednesday. The game is slated to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this winter.
Sumo Digital is developing the game, and a playable demo will debut at E3 in June. The game will include options to play with or against friends online or offline, and it will feature various characters and tracks in the Sonic universe.
The website of retailer Walmart recently listed the game for release for the Nintendo Switch in 2018. The listing states that the game will have online multiplayer and local co-op modes with 12 players per race to let players face off or work together. The offline and online race modes will include Grand Prix Mode, Exhibition Mode, Time-Trial, and Team Adventure. When racing as a team, players will be able to share power-ups and speed boosts and release a Team Ultimate. Players will be able to use 14 types of offensive and defensive Wisps to help them defeat rivals. The game will have 15 playable characters and three character types including Speed, Technique, and Power classes. A variety of performance and skin customization options will let players control the appearance and handling of their vehicles.
Sega teased a new Sonic the Hedgehog racing game in a video in March. The letter "R" highlighted in the video is the same font as the Sonic R 1997 racing game. Sega released the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed racing game in 2012.
