Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is the sequel for the first racing game of the Sega Superstars series. The game was leaked by Kotaku at the New York Toy Fair by revealing, according to Kotaku, "Sega's Sequel to Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing".

It features a transformation element of racing gameplay unique to that of any other racing game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series.

Announcement

Pictures depicting the side-view of the shelf revealed boxes for Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, Beat and Aiai. Shortly after this event the website called Starland.com also added info on the game. They listed it in the pre-order list for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii for $57, to be released on 30 November 2012 but was then removed by Sega.

On 30 April, an announcement trailer was released, revealing the game's official name, as well as a new mechanic that transforms the character's vehicles to land, air and water forms. The confirmed platforms of release are PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, Vita and Nintendo 3DS.

The game was released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 in Australia on 15 November, for the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita in North America on 11 December and in Europe on 20 November. The PC version was released on 31 January 2013. The Wii U version was a launch title (with the exception of Japan), launching along with the console on 18 November in North America, and on 30 November in Europe/Australia. It was later revealed that the PC edition will allow racers to play as the DLC Team Fortress 2, Total War Shogun, Football Manager, Company Of Heroes 2 and Total War: ROME II characters.

On 22 October 2013, Sega announced that the game would be released for Android and iOS devices, coming out on 1 January 2014 with Ryo Hazuki as an additional character.[2]

On 12 February 2014, Sega announced that the game will be released in Japan for the PS3 and Wii U by 15 May 2014.[3][4]

Gameplay

Gameplay is similar to the game's prequel, in which players choose different settings and characters before a race. The most noticeable addition to the game is the three different modes of racing: land, sea and air. Racers' cars can now change into a plane when in the air and into a boat when on water after passing through a Transformation Gate. The Sumo Digital staff stated in some interviews before its release that Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed would be "proper boating, proper flying."[citation needed] In addition, the tracks themselves change during the race. For example, in Dragon Canyon, the bridges are destroyed by the dragons in the track's third lap, requiring changing into flight mode.

All-Star Moves return and they are collected in capsules like in All-Stars Racing. There are new weapons, such as ice shots to freeze opponents and a baseball glove that catches an attack from behind, and giving the player that weapon. There are also 17 new tracks, plus four favorite tracks from the previous game, similar to the retro cups in the more recent Mario Kart games.

Players are able to earn XP points to put towards a leveling system, which can potentially unlock vehicle mods and other items. The more XP points are collected, the better characters become on the track. Once collected enough stars from World Tour events, you can unlock Console Mods, that are found in World Tour. These mods have been chosen for characters, depending on the Console Mod unlocked.

Slotmachine Transformed

A slot machine on the loading screen.

On the loading screen before a race, there is a slot machine similar to the one in Sonic Heroes. Once enough All-Star Tokens are collected from previous races, players can pull the lever to try their luck. If the three slots match, a new item is obtained. The player can also win an item at the start of every lap or have an item at the beginning of the race. If not, the player does not earn anything, and can spin once more if he/she has the required number of coins. The slot machine requires 5 coins for a spin. The slot machine and tokens are missing from the 3DS version due to it running on a different engine.

Stickers

Main article: Stickers

Stickers are special rewards obtained after completing a certain condition in the game. Some of these Stickers also unlock Xbox 360 Achievements, PlayStation 3 and Vita Trophies and Steam Trophies/Achievements. The Wii U and 3DS versions of the game do not use an achievement system, but allows for sticker collection in the game.

Playable Characters

There is a total of 30 playable characters (including three third-party characters). The game features specific platform rosters and no single platform has all 30 characters. Players start with ten characters (Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, AiAi, Beat, Amy, BD Joe, MeeMee, Ulala and Wreck-It Ralph) and the other characters are unlocked by winning enough stars in the events in World Tour. Racers include:

Reception

For the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, IGN gave an 8.5 score, saying that it is better than several of the racing games of 2012 and that it is a true arcade-like racing game, but not as fresh as Mario Kart 7.[13] The second review released was from UK's Official Nintendo Magazine, giving it an average score of only 62%. The reviewer stated that "the early excitement of the transformations doesn't make up for an interminable world tournament, poor local multiplayer and uninspiring weapons. The mixture of Sega and Sumo (with a hint of Bizarre) should have made for a game that was as accomplished as it was nostalgic. Instead, it just feels pallid." Eurogamer, however, gave the game a score of 9/10, saying "This manages to be more than just a tribute to the great and good of Sega's past - it does enough to earn its own place alongside them." The Daily Mail reviewer gave the game their perfect score (5/5), saying that the game was bad on multiplayer, but overall a revisit to Sega's greatest memories.[14] GameTrailers gave the Xbox 360 version an 8.7/10', saying that "it’s a fun, challenging, and easily enjoyable racing game that uses a lot of familiar mechanics and ideas but knows well enough to try and do its own thing".[15] In their last Sonic game review, Nintendo Power gave the Wii U version an 8.0/10, commenting on its "well-behaved multiplayer and tracks that were born to become a race track." The Official Xbox Magazine gave Transformed an 8/10, praising for its beautiful track graphics and awesome multiplayer, with the exception of poor quality on its split screen in multiplayer mode.

Trivia

  • All 16 characters from Sega Superstars Tennis return in this game.
  • This is the second time in which a Sonic game was leaked due to the premature release of toys, the first time being when toys of Rouge the Bat and Shadow the Hedgehog had been revealed before both characters' debuting game, Sonic Adventure 2, was even announced, both of which happen to be sequels.
  • There are two other games (Mario Kart 7 and Diddy Kong Racing) that have a transformation feature.
    • Sumo Digital said that they had the idea of the transforming vehicles before Mario Kart 7 was announced, as said in an interview with Nintendo Power.
  • Unlike the first game, the PC version will feature an online multiplayer mode.
  • There is a minor change in the title from the first All-Stars Racing game, as the "Sega" is missing, just making it Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed rather than Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed. This is because other characters, such as Wreck-It Ralph, Danica Patrick, Mii/Xbox 360 Avatar, Team Fortress, General Winter are not Sega characters. (General Winter Was a THQ Characters Until SEGA Claim The Franchise)
  • The first three trailers for the game use the song "Promises" by Nero for the BGM. All the trailers after the August trailer use "Acid Cube" by Richardson & Macklin & Ford.
  • This makes Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed the second Sonic game to have a trailer that uses non-Sega music, the first being Sonic Generations, which had trailers that used the songs "Tenderoni" by Kele for the Gameplay/Green Hill trailer and "Na Na Na" by My Chemical Romance for the City Escape trailer.
  • Although Beat appeared in the first All-Stars Racing game with his Jet Set Radio Future design, he appears in All-Stars Racing Transformed with his original design from Jet Set Radio, although a bit shorter in height.
  • The cars in the game have undergone a radical design change due to the transformation mechanics in this game. Notable examples include Sonic's Speed Star, which now has sharper angles, different wheels, and less "Sonic spines"; Amy's car loses the tire cover, gets a bigger wind shield, and becomes rounded; and Doctor Eggman's monster truck is now a six-wheeled red "tank". Every racer now has a car, a tank-like vehicle, or a quad bike instead of a bi-plane (e.g. Tails' Tornado Racer) or a motorcycle (e.g. Shadow's Dark Rider).
  • This is the first Sonic the Hedgehog game (as well as the first spin-off title) on the PlayStation Vita (not counting the PSP re-releases on the PlayStation Network) and the Wii U.
  • At the end of the Comic-Con 2012 trailer, and during the Danica Patrick trailer, some of Sonic's voice clips from Sonic Generations are used. The same applies for Doctor Eggman.
  • Wreck-It Ralph, from the 2012 Disney film of the same name, is a playable character in the game, which is likely a reference to the fact that in the film, Ralph "game jumps" through different arcade games. The game including Ralph might reference the fact that Sonic, Dr. Eggman, Tails, and other Sega characters appear in Wreck-It Ralph.
  • With the exception of Tails and Amigo, all of the characters that appear on Transformed's cover (Sonic, Dr. Eggman, AiAi) also appear on Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing cover.
    • Similarly, Aiai is the only non-Sonic character on the game's boxart.
  • This is the first Sonic game to have a guest character that is not a video game character.
    • This is also the first Sonic game to feature a real-life celebrity as a playable character.
  • It is noticeable that Danica Patrick has the Hot Wheels and GoDaddy logos on her car.
  • Just like its prequel, this game uses recycled voice clips from previous Sonic games, notably from Sonic Generations.
    • Again, none of the Sonic voice actors were credited in the credits.
  • Ocean View is the only new stage in the game that has been based off a stage (that stage being Seaside Hill) previous used in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing tracks, which are Whale Lagoon, Lost Palace and Ocean Ruin.
  • Similar to its prequel, the PS3 version does not get an exclusive character.
  • Sonic Universe #45 ties in to this game, making it the first stand-alone issue of the series to crossover with a video game. It also marks the first appearance of non-Sonic characters in the comic series, such as Beat and Vyse.
  • This is the first game in the Sega Superstars/Sega All-Stars series to have an RPG series represented.
  • If one fails an event multiple times, a quiet mocking laughter can be heard.
  • If the player attempts to turn down the audio for the voices or audience, the announcer will attempt to stop the player and ridicule them or boo them, respectively.
  • Some re-used sound files are from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Sumo Digital Start-Up) and Star Fox Assault (Pressing A/X whilst on the slot machine with no tokens).
  • Amigo is the only mute character in the game, only communicating via whistle blows.
    • This is not counting Metal Sonic in the Bonus Edition.
  • This game and its original both have Seaside Hill as their background on the cover.
  • Unlike the first game which had three female characters counting the player's Mii/Avatar, this time there are six, counting the player's Mii/Avatar if it's a girl.
  • The announcer does not say "Final Lap" in the console/PC versions when the player is on his/her final lap of the race.
  • Unlike Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, the Xbox LIVE Avatars and Miis are given voices.
  • In Sonic Universe Issue 45, Danica's car has Sonic's icon on the front.
  • Similar to its prequel, Silver is the only hedgehog in the main-console series to not have an appearance in this game.
  • Several tracks and even background music sound similar to a real-world or another game track:
  • Race of Ages has a track design similar to Crash Nitro Kart's Android Alley, as both of the tracks are yellow, have very slick turns and have narrow paths.
  • World Tour mode is labeled as having you travel from island to island while saving characters that you unlock.
  • The "Takes AGES" achievement features an image of Tarō Sega, the main protagonist of the Japan-exclusive game Segagaga.
  • It is possible to bypass the transformation gates in courses as a glitch. The character needs to move as close to the gate as possible and then face the opposite direction until the 'Wrong Way' sign appears. After the 'Wrong Way' sign appears for a while (the character will be respawned), the character will respawn in front of the transformation gate without going through it, which means the player could attempt to drive as a boat at car sections or drive a plane on boat sections etc.
    • This, however, may be fixed in some of the versions due to patches.
  • Vyse is the only character who does not use recycled voice clips from his own game, as his original voice actor, Christopher Sullivan, provided new voice clips for him for the game.
  • This the first Sonic game to have Steam Trading Cards on Steam.
  • Team Fortress 2 is the first Valve game to have characters appear in a sonic game.
    • Interestingly enough, This is the only Third-Party Franchise in Sonic game that has 3 Characters on it. Heavy, Pyro and the Spy. (With the exception of Banjo-Kazooie)
    • Team Fortress, Willemus and General Winter are the only character in Transformed to reign from M rated games besides the HOTD characters series are non-playables. This marks the first Sonic game to feature various M-rated Characters.
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is the only Sonic game that appear in two Humble Bundles . The first one being Yogscast's Dwarven Dairy Drive, and the second one is being Humble Weekly Sale SEGA. In Germany only, it's because The House of The Dead: Overkill is banned in that country, the game is replaced.
  • Takenobu Mitsuyoshi is confirmed to be the announcer of the game in the Japanese version.
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed marks the first Sonic and Sega Superstars games to feature 3 Non-Video Games Characters and 2 Real-life Celebrity and People.
  • The PC version (so far) is the only version and sonic games that frequently appear to have several updates and free DLC and also the demanding of the Community's future update and the Developer promise the deal.
  • Team Fortress appears the only characters that based on First Person Shooter games that never have any Racing Games before.
    • While Willemus, General Winter, Shogun and The Football Manager based on Strategy Tactic games. (Making the only sonic games to have 4 strategy based characters)
    • Interestingly enough Team Fortress and Football Manager are the only Characters that based on the Games' titles. (With exception of the Sonic the Hedgehog and other characters)
    • Yogscast shares the same segment with TF and FM that his really truly name is Simon "honeydew" Lane.
    • Unlike Danica Patrick, Simon shows his Cartoony model while Danica shows her full body from the real world.
    • Between the UK and the US Version, Danica Patrick's name pronounced differently by the Narrator.
    • Danica Patrick is not Available on the Japanese version, oddly enough she was shown in the Japanese Trailer.
