SEGA has revealed some more details surrounding its upcoming Team Sonic Racing game during its SXSW Gaming panel. Along with more details on what fans can expect from the upcoming new racing game featuring one of the fastest characters in history, a new Sonic show was also revealed. The new Sonic show is based on the upcoming game from SEGA and is called Team Sonic Racing: Overdrive.
The upcoming game, which focusses on team racing, grants players the opportunity to earn in-game currency when they race, which lets them unlock prizes. Prizes include new customisation parts for your cars, performance mods, horns and various paint jobs to choose from. Players will have the option to find rare gold parts in the upcoming game.
The new Sonic show is a supercharged, two-part animation series, which ties into the upcoming game. The new show features some classic characters from the Sonic franchise, which include Sonic the Hedgehog himself, Amy, Tails, Big the Cat, and Shadow. The new Sonic show’s first part has been released, which is really super cute and fun. The short first part is a fun way for fans to get excited about the upcoming game, and to introduce the franchise along with the cute characters to those who aren’t familiar with the Sonic brand. You can check out the first part below, with the second part releasing late in April 2019.
Team Sonic, Team Rose, and Team Dark face off at Wisp Circuit in this first of two parts of a special animation based on Team Sonic Racing! As usual, the diabolical Dr. Eggman seems to have his own plans – can the teams overcome his tricks, or will they find themselves more than a little distracted?
Team Sonic Racing will speed onto all major platforms including PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 21 May 2019. Have a look at the new customisation trailer below
Sonic’s having a busy year. Along with the upcoming game and new Sonic show, there’s also a new Sonic movie, which has been getting some criticism for its interpretation of the live-action version of the iconic hedgehog.
