After a delay of a year and half, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed's soundtrack will be released on May 14, which happens to be a day before the Japanese release of the PlayStation 3 and Wii U versions of the game. The soundtrack is priced at ¥3,000 (around $30), and consists of two discs with a total of 23 tracks. Note that the soundtrack does not include every song in the game.

Just today, IGN posted a preview of the hinted Zelda DLC for Sonic Lost World.
This time, the new stage is not only a 2D sidescroller, but the world of The Legend of Zelda itself! Sonic runs through the 3D environment from Link's adventures, collecting Rupees, slashing enemies, and traversing dangerous areas inspired by different areas in the Legend of Zelda series. It's just a small test to see how Sonic would fare in Link's shoes... literally!
Here's what IGN says about the zone:
- The Legend of Zelda Zone pulls artistic inspiration from a variety of Link’s adventures. The looming Hyrule Castle in the background comes from Twilight Princess. The enemy Stalfos that creep out of the ground originate from Ocarina of Time. At key moments Link rides …
In a recent update, supposedly last week, Sonic has acquired a batch of familiar upgrades: the Fire Shield, the Aqua Shield, the Lightning Shield, and even the Insta-Shield. Imagine the usefulness of a Fire Shield in Marble Zone or an Aqua Shield in Labyrinth Zone... this is quite the treat. The image below was not taken in Debug Mode.
As we know, all four of these shields officially debuted in Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Could this be a hint toward the hungrily expected Sonic 3 Remastered?
UPDATE: After a bit of perusing, I am unable to find any elemental shields aside from this one instance. However, the Insta-Shield does exist in-game.
UPDATE 2: Snuffles is right to an extent. It was an accident, however, and I didn't realize it until now.Read more >
Yesterday, I was playing a game of tag (you're never too old for tag!) with my dog. Bad idea. She ran full force into the back of my legs, knocking me onto my left shoulder. I thought my shoulder had been dislodged, but it turns out I broke my left arm.
Basically, my left arm is not to be used for a while. This means that I have a harder time using the computer. I'm typing this with only my right hand. Besides, I'm supposed to get some rest. My point: this will restrict my time on this wiki indefinitely but not completely.
Hope to be back full time soon. ;)Read more >
Today, SEGA announced a new "franchise strategy": Sonic Boom. The news was flowing in since about 1:00 PM/ET today, and there's plenty to discuss. Here's a roundup of today's news for the game.
First off, Sega says this is not a series reboot. Sega of America president John Chen stressed that "Sonic Boom will not be replacing the original franchise". Aaron Webber described it as a "new branch" of the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
This third Nintendo-exclusive game in the Nintendo/Sega partnership will be developed by Big Red Button (Wii U) and Sanzaru (3DS). They will be different games, but set in the same universe. The game features traditional Sonic elements such as speed, but it'll star alongside exploration, combat, and an "Enerbeam" tetherin…
