Team Sonic Racing: Release Date, Trailers, and Everything We Know

What you need to know about Team Sonic Racing, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!

Sega has confirmed the development of Team Sonic Racing after users on ResetEra spotted a WalMart leak of the game just hours ago. 

As was rumored earlier this year, Team Sonic Racing will be developed by Sumo Digital who also worked on Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing and Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed. What we didn’t know based on the rumors that emerged earlier this year is that Team Sonic Racing will allow for both online multiplayer (in which up to 12 players can compete) and offline multiplayer which will support up to four players via split-screen. Regardless of which multiplayer option you choose, you’ll be able to participate in a variety of modes that include Grand Prix, Exhibition, Time-Trial, and Team Adventure. 

Yes, Team Adventure. It seems that Team Sonic Racing will lean heavily on the team aspect of the title by allowing players to form in-game teams. These teams will be much more than just some matching uniforms as teammates will actually be able to pull off unique moves and assists that includes a “Team Ultimate” ability. Those that would rather go it alone will be happy to know that there’s also an Adventure Mode in the game that comes complete with an actual racing game story (fancy that).

This racer will also feature 14 “wisps” (in-game items), options to customize your characters and cars with both cosmetics and performance-enhancing upgrades, and 15 playable characters that are divided into three class types; speed, technique, and power.
