Walmart strikes again, this time leaking Sega’s next big Sonic racing game. It’s Team Sonic Racing and strangely enough, Sonic isn’t racing around on foot like the Sonic R of yore. Sorry, Sega Saturn fans.
The listing is for the Nintendo Switch but Xbox One, PS4 and PC releases can also be expected. On top of this, the game’s first screenshots (courtesy of ResetEra) have also been revealed. Check them out below and marvel at Shadow the Hedgehog’s sweet ride. From the cover art and screens, Knuckles and Tails are also confirmed.
What we don’t know is whether transformations, allowing players to go from land to sea to air racing in the middle of races – will be making a return. Furthermore, does the “team” aspect imply some kind co-operative mode, perhaps something akin to Onrush’s objective-focused racing? We won’t know until Sega officially announces the game but we can’t imagine they’re too happy about this leak.
