I... LOVED the first one. I still think to this day, on how I came so close to passing up on this title. I'm glad that I didn't, because I played the mess out of that! Without a doubt, Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing was one of my favorite racing games this gen. And personally, it has my favorite racing mechanics of any racing title in the same regards.
What I would like in the sequel? Personally, I'd like for them to go for full price this time. Solely for the game to have for features and such. I loved racing online, and didn't mind it that there wasn't an option to use All-Star moves online, but having more online options is always good. Battles, team racing/battles, knock-out races online and etc. = Very yes!
Characters I like? First and foremost. I hope no characters will be knocked out from the previous version. (Especially the Bonanza Bros.! They were my favorites in the bunch. Drop them, you die.) As for characters I want in... Sonic characters: Team Chaotix all together on a motorcycle, Orbot and Cubot together in a prototype Eggmobile, Silver in a hovercraft and Blaze in a nitro guzzlin' limousine. Would like it if Omega and Rouge were playable, but I'll live if they were kept out.
Characters from other Sega franchises? First off, make Ristar and NiGHTS playable, please! Have the Outrun Flagman to wave the flag this time.
If anyone was put in a game to wave a flag with style, it was him.
Also... Sketch Turner in something similar to a Ford Taurus or anything that was poular around 1995, Toejam and Earl in a pimpmobile, Vyze in a mini airship hovercraft, Segata Sanshiro doing whatever the fuck he wants and Shinobi in a spy car or motorcycle, please? Would also love to see Agent G and Detective Washington in a Ice Cream truck, Jack Cayman on a motorcycle, Bayonetta on a motorcycle or in Enzo's Car, or Sam Gideon in some type of hovercraft make it in. (Wouldn't hold my breath on that though.) And even though I never played any of the Valkyria Chronicles titles -- Don't hit me! I don't have a PS3. -- I'd love to see a rep from that franchise just to drive a tank alone.
Guest characters? Well, as far as WiiU/3DS is concern. As much as I would like Mario in there...
I would like this guy more. HYEASH!
Courses? As much as I love Planet Wisp and Final Fortress, I want Sonic levels that have not been represented in the previous game or Generations. I want them to be nice and fresh. Also, I want more course reps outside the Sonic Series as well. Heck, after they're done adding new course, I'd love it if they add some of the previous courses back as retro swag.
So yeah! This title is high on my list.
Edit: I was only tossing vehicle ideas with the characters. If the characters listed are confirmed then I really don't care what they drive.
