Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

Recommended Posts

The cast of characters could be vast and this is the scenario where you bring back the Avatar creation and create your own racer. I there ever was a place for that , its this game. They kind of did it in SART for 360 where you could use your Xbox avatar.

I could talk for ages about possible ways a racer could be done [I've started posing ideas for the next Mario Kart on my blog and that's at least another two years away and not even announced] but I'm going to keep this within the realm of plausible.

I already said on the SXSW panel thread about an idea where you have two characters per kart with each character having their own usable power. I doubt that concept will ever happen, but character specific powers still could. It would be triple-tiered, powered by collecting rings on the stages. The first would be basic attack/defence powers. The mid-tier would be placement powers - so mines, dummy rings, bombs, etc - that pop up on the track. The third-tier would be special powers that effect all those players in front of your position, but depending on position would require more rings to fully charge.

I highly doubt there's going to be hubs within the main content, but at the same time it's very unlikely to follow the Mario Kart formula either. I don't want to be suggesting stuff I've already done for Mario Kart, so I'll keep this simple. The idea from All-Stars for events other than racing was a good idea, but they need to be more themed on Sonic. So along with the usual race, there could be emerald hunt - which would be similar to Mania's special stages, ring collector - which tasks everyone to collect a certain amount of rings, or battle - where everyone has a health bar and needs to be the last one standing. Taking two other ideas from All-Stars would be tracks that are different on each lap - but applying that to every track in the game - and bosses that need to be tackled. Progression within the career would be linear, but I'm thinking tournaments could be used. Levels could appear multiple times with new modes attached to them, and it would at least allow for a clear way of unlocking things - unless you wanted to put that to a shop where you used the rings collected within levels.

There's a large amount of history for characters and stages, and I'll go over that once this game is fully announced.

Roster details feel irrelevant to me, because we can accurately guess who's going to be in. 

 

I want to know what stages they're going to use, as well if they're going to remix any themes. Cuz I swear to god, if they have like three variations of Green Hill.....

At least one will happen. They could use Mania's version tho', with segments inside the caves and what not.

I might be the only one here who thinks this but i really hope they bring back TJ Davis, She seems to still be active.

Oh believe me, I'm sure there are plenty of people who want her to come back and I do too!

It depends who's doing the soundtrack. If it's Richard Jacques, then maybe.

One of the bonus Guests needs to be someone from the comics.

That's not going to happen, and here's why:

Pre-Reboot or no, you just know this douche is gonna blow his lid if anything in the comics is referenced in anything.

This announcement is cool, but I've got literally nothing to say about this game that I didn't already say back when it was just a rumour. It's a shame that it's kart-based rather than a foot racer, but if it's being made by Sumo Digital then I've got absolutely no worries about it being a good game. It's just disappointing that they chose to announce the game with a small teaser trailer instead of a full reveal. I guess that I can't say that I'm at all excited yet because yesterday's news was nothing more than them confirming a rumour.

As in IDW. Not necessarily Archie.

There's only one stage i'm interested in , and i'm interested if they actually do it. ( I'm interested in more stages, but one in particular ) 

I"m more interested in vehicles and how they will be handled

I was wondering, the R focus is making a reference to Sonic R, meaning that this does have some connection to sonic R... What if instead of cars, boats, and planes, we actually get Racing by foot/Racing with cars at the same time?

Like, at a certain point at a track, Sonic gets off his car and goes by foot. This could also be implemented as a gameplay mechanic for getting certain paths that a car couldn't and etc

If you notice and look carefully you can see the word racing with the R being highlighted. If it does have anything to do with Sonic R then please bring back Tails Doll to the game.

I'm happy that this is a thing that exists... that said, the cynical part of my brain just keeps imagining exaggerated worst case scenarios that it apparently finds hilarious for some reason.

Like someone from Sonic Team barging in with a box full of Sonic Forces assets and saying "No Hang Castle or Eggmanland! Instead use the assets from this game  just came out. People will love racing through the same iconic levels they'll never ever get tired of like Green Hill, Chemical Plant, and the Death Egg, over and over again. And let's not forget our new hits that'll sure to be classic levels down the line like... ... City... and... Silent Forest Asset Flip Zone..."

You all liked "City" right?

Ha ha, that would be the biggest wind up ever.

I’ll quite like to expect a title reveal of “Sonic Forces Racing” alongside a showing of the first (potentially only) 3 characters on the roster - Modern Sonic, Avatar Import, and Classic “why the eff is he even in this game” Sonic on 01/04/2018 hehe.

I wouldn't mind if it was like R and the original concept for ASR where everyone had different racing styles, Sonic on foot, Eggman on the Egg Walker, Tails on the Tornado, Amy in a car, etc. but the teaser itself deconfirms this, the first (and only) thing we see is a car, so I doubt it. Not only that, but the leak said that Sumo Digital is working on a "karting game for a famous IP", so yeah, not on foot racing.

Green Hill Desert
Green Hill Cavern

 

Chemical Plant:

Chemical Plant outside
Chemical Plant inside

Replace Chemical Plant with Seaside Hill and you're on to something

I looked up All-Stars Racing's track list, and three Seaside Hill tracks, three Casino Park tracks, and three Final Fortress tracks. So that wouldn't be outside the realms of possibility.

Green Hill - Green Valley / Green Hill - Cavern Cracks / Green Hill - Desert Raid [gotta get the Forces rep in]

Chemical Plant - Factory / Chemical Plant - Purple River / Chemical Plant - Spaceport [again, Forces rep]

I'd go one further, but I think the jokes gone on long enough without adding three tracks from the other classic stage reps.

Regarding tracks, I kinda think there will be two versions of every track. Similar to how Riders handled it.

So for example, if we got Green Hill Zone, I imagine there'd also be a Sand Hill Zone level as a variant to it. If we got City Escape, I'd imagine Radical Highway would be a variant.

I just want Pumpkin Hill at a track, the Knuckles version not that daytime Sky Rail version.

And if we got Pumpkin Hill, I think we'd also get Sky Rail. I kinda doubt we'll see either, though. I'd sooner except City Escape and Radical Highway, though I wouldn't mind being wrong on this one.

 

Now, I would hope they're all unique without remixed themes, I just kinda doubt that'll be the case. And I do hope they vary the themes, so if we get two tracks from a game that are a city level, they don't pick the city level from another game and go with a different level instead.
