Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

Recommended Posts

I'm guessing its because at that time Heroes was the only game that used levels that looked they really came from Sonic's universe. Sumo probably wanted to use iconic tropes from the Sonic series and since Heroes had a few of them, it made sense to use locations from that game.

Eeeh. You could have taken the ARK or something like Final Egg and it would've fitted perfectly as well.

Essentially.

When it comes to pure Sonic vibes, no Dreamcast era game had it more than Heroes.

For some reason, whenever people are asking for DLC in Team Sonic Racing, Aaron keeps going on and on about how all the content is in the game and how they're not going to nickel and dime us like a phone game. I'm grateful for the sentiment but he doesn't seem to get that people are asking about it because they want it. 

Like, DLC isn't microtransactions. It's like how people get excited for more fighters in Smash through DLC despite the fact that the game is out. They're asking for it because they really want Cream the Rabbit and the other Chaotix in the game. Some are curious about Infinite too I guess. 

If he did understand where people were coming from he'd probably say "Sorry they're not in the game. Maybe next time" instead, I'm guessing.

Unless he's just trying to avoid saying no.

Had my suspicions with the Knuckles clips, but the Zavok dialogue shown off on the Sonic Official stream pretty much confirmed that Travis Willingham most likely didn't record for this game. Zavok sounds noticeably different. (Voice seems a bit lighter...maybe Patrick Seitz is playing him in this game?)

Edit: Silver also sounds a bit like Roger pulling double duty rather than Quinton Flynn.

When did this happen they couldn't get the game to work in their Sonic Official stream.

Going by one of the videos shown earlier when it came to the customization, it's interesting how the rest of the paintkits seem to be "zone" themed, including the zones in the game and even zones that aren't even represented in TSR. Zones like Stardust Speedway, Studiopolis, and Mirage Saloon are paint kits, and even Music Plant from Sonic Advance 2 is as well.. Kinda odd

And these two... good bad boys:

latest?cb=20111029170348latest?cb=20121013104106

Maybe put them with Infinite?  (Plus, since this is a spinoff, I don't think there'd be as much of a problem for a few classic characters/variations).

Also, the Mod Pods system is basically the SEGA Miles system from the first game. You race, you get little credits for racing, then you cash those in for parts. So, no, they're not microtransactions. 

They seem very laser focused on making sure that when you buy the game, you're getting the whole game. 

Again, I can appreciate that, but the negative side to that is that there truly is no way to fix this slim jim roster. 

I guess I'll just have to wait for a sequel in the next... let's see, how long ago was Transformed? 2012?

Alright, I'll wait another 7-8 years...

Final track of Casino Park is officially Pinball Highway if it wasn't decently obvious yet.

The name of the final track in Sandopolis is Clockwork Pyramid (Not sure if this was already known or not).

I like what I saw in the last video. Sand Road seems fun and The Boo stage is a bit linear but it looks very nice and intersting with all those hazards.

i seriously expect Sky Sanctuary and Galactic Parade as easy and cash grab DLC, maybe with a new stage as the third one. I am not that enthusiast about re using old levels, but SS and GP are awesome , so I don’t mind. 

They could add some twists to the old stages, for example  add some cloud bouncing in Sky Sancturay and change the weather at sunset. For Galactic Parade they could use bounce jumps as well or maybe some other tricks like portals to avoid the original flight section.

I’d also like to see a rainy stage at some point, maybe something Frog Forest inspired? I will gladly buy DLC for this game.

as for characters, I’d love to see Tails Doll and Metal Knuckles, and I still dream about some secret unlockables as a surprise. Don’t you find suspicious that there’s just the right space for another team next to Sonic in the character select screen? 

Who knows, It might be stretching out too much, but it could mean secret chatacters that are kinda related to Sonic /Tails/ Knuckles.

The Best example could be Classic Sonic, Tails Doll and Metal Knuckles.

and then there’s still EggPawn basically ready to be used. Not a big fan of it, but one more character is always welcomed.

DLC racers? I’d personally go with Espio, Cream, Infinite and the Babylon

Also, the name of the ice place is called Glacierland. 

I look that up on Google and I get screenshots of Team Sonic Racing so I'm guessing that's supposedly a new area. I don't know why they didn't just call it Ice Cap or Holoska. It's not like anyone would have been able to tell the difference. Not really.

As for DLC, if they ever were to do it, it shouldn't be anything too crazy. Enough for another team should suffice. Ironically, the three most glaring omissions, Espio, Charmy, and Cream, make up three people. It really is nerve wracking that they were short the full main cast by just one extra team. It's so strange to think about. What an unfortunate miss.

Oh my goodness, that just confirms it--this game was made on a budget.

Oh shoot, really?

Don't get me wrong, I like Zavok's voice, but that actually sounds like a cool tradeoff.

Triple, because I remembering being sure that was him back when we first noticed Knuckles.

Nice to have both Follow Me and Team Chaotix back, even if only playing for 5 seconds. I bet This Machine is in there too, I always liked the cheesy Heroes themes.

The game looks pretty crazy on higher difficulty, I could barely follow their moves at times, this will be insane on Expert mode just like Transformed!

Galactic Parade is officially dead, and Whale Lagoon is somehow the final track of the Seaside zone?? In that case the classic tracks are definitely not ordered by difficulty, which means Turbine Loop may well be back over Egg Hangar. The Death Egg is not part of Final Fortress after all, though that track was basically ready to be ported.

here's a transcript of the first cutscene:

amy: hi, sonic! omochao and big and i are having a picnic. want to join us?

sonic: sure! knuckles and tails and i got these weird invitations to the beach for some kind of race, but i'm always down for a chili dog!

amy: a race. hmm. we didn't get any invitations.

dodon pa: hohohoho. hello, blue hedgehog. i am dodon pa. i'm glad to see you accepted the offer of my invitation. are you ready to prove you're the fastest?

tails: 'fastest' is sonic's middle name! but what's this race all about? your invitation was skinny on details.

dodon pa: oh, details are unimportant, especially to those of limited intellectual capacities. all you need to know is that you'll be racing as teams in the most advanced cars my super-science can create, testing your limits on my punishing track.

amy: that's pretty vague. and ignoring all this 'limited intellectual capacities' crack, all this 'super-science' and 'punishing track' talk sounds suspiciously eggman-esque.

(knuckles says something, but is cut off before any text can be seen)

Let's hope that Dodon Pa doesn't turn out to be Sonic's Mr. X. That already didn't work in Mega Man 6.

Huh. Yeah, funny that.

Although it is a weird consideration considering the three types.

Okay, actually having this for reference, what IS up with Zavok? :confused:

I forgot to say that I’m litteraly praying for Radiant Emerald to be a secret final stage with “Super Sonic Racing” remixed theme. That would be awesome

Something in the tie-in comic is that Dodon Pa  seems to respect Tails' intelligence, which sounds very un-Eggman-like.   Also, once again, seeing Eggman as a tanooki would be a little weird.   I swear, if Dondo Pa is indeed Classic Eggman, though, then we'd best expect some Classic Sonic content (Maybe DLC).   As I said before, it was specifically stated when Mania came out we'd get no DLC, then BANG, Mania Plus was announced.  We could easily get two high profile packs out of the Classic Universe: I'm headcanon them Team Classic (Classic Sonic, Classic Tails, Classic Knuckles) and Team Mania (Classic Amy, Ray, Mighty).  Or he could be, as I'm still in belief of at this moment, just a new character.  

Besides those two team, here's who I could see:

Espio (Speed), Charmy (Technique), ??? (Power)

Infinite (Speed), Tails Doll (Technique), Metal Knuckles (Power)

Cream (Technique), ??? (Speed), ??? (Power)

I really like Amy & Zavok lines in this Zavok sounds like he's having a good time and I love all of Amy's like when she said " anyone need any love".

No, please, let Dodon Pa just be his own thing.

That's what I'm hoping.  But even Amy references Eggman...  I'd rather him be his own character tbh.
