Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

Recommended Posts

Eh, I'd disagree with that sentiment. CTR was my first ever Crash game (so wasn't fanservice at all to me) and I loved it. Meanwhile, Transformed was packed to the brim with SEGA fanservice and I hated it (which I keep having to mention, Transformed might as well be a punching bag on this end). If they can get the mechanics down solid, that'll be a good time for me.

I mean, it's not too ridiculous considering how the game overall looks like it's being cheaply made. Sumo Digital also working on at least 2 projects that have been in dev hell (Crackdown 3 according to numerous rumors and reports, and Dead Island 2, which has been dead for years, yet apparently still being in the works?) also doesn't help the circumstances. New models, new animations, necessary testing, balancing, new voicelines, etc. still adds up. I wouldn't be too surprised that they just didn't put more than 15 purely because of budgetary reasons. I might be completely wrong on this, but that's my take on the whole thing.

Or maybe the original budget for TSR was slashed so Sega could allocate the funds to the upcoming live-action/CG Sonic movie.

(Nah I agree with you. One only needs to look at Mania and Forces heavily recycling assets, and Sonic output in general slowing to a massive crawl after the Boom fiasco / 2015 restructuring to see where the state of Sonic has gone. Although I personally do think Forces revisiting past levels was more of a creative/designer decision by ST, rather than a financial decision by Sega.)

He looks evil (same big mustache as Eggman, Eggman Nega, Captain Whisker).

He probably isn't that evil:

Also if it's an Eggman disguise, it's gotta be his best one yet. Dude straight up has an animal muzzle and everything.

PLEASE don't let it be a cheap Eggman in disguise!

I want an actual character. Not like Sonic Forces with "Each villain has unfinished buisness with Sonic" horsecrap.

I feel the story will have more effort put into it than Sonic Forces.

But I love Seaside Hills! It's not shoved as much as GHZ!

I like Seaside Hill a lot too. But surely we could have had another water level. Wouldn't Labyrinth have been cool. And while I know Hydrocity was in Mania, I'd prefer that to Seaside Hill.

We've seen Seaside Hill so many times, and it was in the Racing games.

How about Rail Canyon? If we want some Sonic Heroes levels.

  • There's 21 tracks total, but divided into 7 zones, so 3 tracks per zone. Apparently the earliest they went to when it comes to tracks is Sonic 3, but then again, both of them mixed up Ice Cap and thought it's a level from Advance so lol
  • This was in their preview article that came before that, but there can be more than 1 character of each type, or even 1 of the same character (the rep said himself that your team can consist of 3 Bigs). Teams are set in Adventure Mode.
  • Don't know if this was confirmed before, but apparently you can play through Adventure mode with 2 other players (only split-screen confirmed tho)
  • When Sumo started making the game, they didn't have the team aspect in mind, but then Iizuka-san came in and said "I wanna play a racing game with kids, but they're scrubs at them so pls add something that makes them happy" (slight overexaggeration, but it is a slight one)

Maybe I missed something, but that's what I got from the showcase.

Why does Iizuka always do this

Regardless, this is a fucking awful idea and we know it came from Iizuka.

His ideas for Mania were great, but he's fucked it up here.

Sonic Team are a travesty, SEGA really needs to let them work on something new.
