Character and Circuit Discussion for Team Sonic Racing 🏁

Recommended Posts

I just got the idea from a comment in YT... 

 

What if, assuming Blaze does not get put into Team Rose and put into a team alongside Silver?  The guy said Tikal could be paired up with them,  so as to be "Team Dimension" Thoughts? 

Well,  the leak sure helped this topic get more views huh? 

 

Thanks,  I guess.

So my prediction for the characters are as follows:


Amy, Eggman, Metal Sonic, Vector, Espio, Silver, Infinite, Blaze, Classic Sonic, Sticks.

 

Circuit Predictions:

Green Hill, Seaside Hill, Chemical Plant, Sky Sanctuary, Sunset Heights, Casino Forest.

Keeping my expectations low for the circuits as a precaution.

I truly believe that no Classic Sonic or even Sonic Adventure era stages that haven't already been remade will make it into the game. While Sumo Digital is developing the game, SEGA still has total control over it and they're pricing it at $40, so I expect a lot of reused assets to cut costs. We've only seen Planet Wisp so far, and you can bet they've reused some assets from Generations.

With that said, my wish list would be: Speed Highway, City Escape, Rooftop Run, Jungle Joyride, Aquarium Park.

Sorry for being negative. :P

I would honestly love this roster, but I'm not expecting Sticks or Infinite, I believe, because of the whole team thing.

If 15 is the base roster I'm 100% ok with it. I just hope Sumo take the high route and make ways to unlock more characters by playing the game instead of playing with my wallet...

Sonic, Tails and Knuckles are confirmed, obviously. Hopefully their Classic versions would be there too, BUT AS SKINS, rather than a different slot. If a Classic character must take a slot to itself tho', let it be poor Amy. 

Speaking of Amy, she's in of course.

Cream? I don't think so. The sight of Cream (or Charmy) driving a car is especially strange to me. I see Blaze taking her spot if there's pre-determined teams. Oh, and Big is in. No doubt. Sumo likes him, so does SEGA (they learned to, thanks to the memes). Blaze and Big.. hm! The cat duo! :D

Hopefully Rouge is in too. And Omega, he's cool. Gamma as a skin? That'd be AWESOME. 

I hope either Vector or Espio get in this time, finally. If we're considering 2 (or more) characters in the same vehicle (like how they did in the original ASR with the Virtual Fighter dudes and the Bonanza Bros), maybe the Chaotix trio could be a "single" racer. Then again, we better scratch that possibility, because: the game already has a team mechanic, having a single racer be 3 guys wouldn't be... Fair, I suppose?

Eggman, Shadow, Metal Sonic, I see they all in. 

The Avatar? Ain't happening, unless it's the red hipster wolf from the trailer or pre-made ones. No way they're going through the trouble of modeling every accessory so can you import your wacky creation from Forces.  

I would be OK with Infinite tho', if SEGA's whilling to give him more spotlight. 

An Egg Pawn as a racer is everything we didn't need. Would rather have a Motobug instead just for the lulz. Egg Pawn is so... Unappealing. Sorry @Pawn :(

Anyways, this is the realistic roster I suppose. My ideal roster would have the likes of Nack/Fang (because he even won that pool years ago on SEGA Forums), Chaos 0 (because he got f*cked in Forces), Tikal (because she's missed), Heavy Rider (because that'd be perfect), Mighty (because Mania Plus), at least one Babylon Rogue (because Riders throwback!), Maria or Gerald Robotnik (because kart racers need these out of place unlockable characters), Tails Doll (because references and memes!)... And the ultimate unlockable character:

 

...The President from Sonic Adventure 2/Shadow the Hedgehog. Driving the limo, no less.

And... Silver? God, I hate Silver, sorry folks.

A thought that crossed my mind... 

 

What if the Technique type stood for racers that have a lot of gadgets/pets that help them? 

If that's the case,  characters that would be Technique are... 

 

Tails,  Team Sonic

*He would have his various gadgets by his side

Cream,  Team Rose

*Chao Mastery. Cheese. Nuff said. 

Rouge,  Team Dark

*Beguiling racers,  ala Gens(?)

Espio, Team Chaotix

*Ninja stars

or

Charmy, Team Chaotix

*Bee techniques

 

Eggman,  Team Empire

*Same as Tails,  may summon badniks

Infinite, Team Illusion(alt)

*Summon Phantom Ruby baricades, may alter enemies' view of the track. 

Zeena, Team Deadly 6/Zeti(U)

*Same as Rouge(?)

Silver,  Team Dimension(U)

*Telekinesis

Can I just say... 

 

I'm glad that Planet Wisp is the "Green Hill" of the game,  instead of the same Green Hill for the nth time.

Where is this whole technique type thing coming from? Or are people just assuming flight will be replaced by technique of all things because it’s a type in the olympics?

Truthfully I’m not even expecting there to be different routes for different character types. If anything I think types will just affect character stats. Speed would have the highest top speed, power would have the highest weight and best traction, and flight will probably have high acceleration and low weight.

Though I would love it if they took a page from Riders and had different obstacles each type could get around. But aside from rocks/robots/cars power types could smash and hoops flight types could fly through I don’t really know what they could do for speed. Maybe they could pull off tricky shortcuts without this games ‘mushroom’ equivalent unlike other racers? Or maybe that’d be too op. Either way, I’d hope to see the differen types be used in some way. But I’m not too optimistic about this happening.

Referencing this quote from the leaked information on the character roster:

Various Characters and Types – 15 playable characters from across the Sonic Universe and 3 distinct character types including Speed, Technique, and Power.

So yes that is why technique has popped up

Granted what "technique" implies I have no idea but its there

Someone probably already brough that up, but what about console exclusive guests? It happened in both ASR and ASRT. In the original game tho', only the Xbox 360 version had an exclusive racer, it was Banjo. While in Transformed, the PC version got a shitton of exclusive characters, even freaking RYO, but they were never ported over to consoles...

I think Mario is a given for the Switch version. I don't think Nintendo would be against it.

PS4: althought Crash Bandicoot isn't exclusive to Sony, it would be nice to have him exclusive to this version, I mean, Banjo first appeared on the Nintendo 64, yet he wasn't in the Wii version of the game.

Xbox One: Conker? Battletoads? The Xbox don't have that many "cute" exclusive characters to work with, and putting someone like Master Chief would raise the PEGI rating, something Sumo don't want.

@Strong Guy Maybe they'll pull from Mania Plus' hype and do a team of Classic Sonic,  Mighty,  and Ray as DLC.  Maybe. 

 

And as for SEGA DLC... I'd pick... 

Outrun/Daytona/Danica Patrick: Speed

Beat/Ulala/Vyse: Technique

Gilius/Ralph(via Disney)/Ryo Hazuki: Power

I don't think there is a fifth, 12 racers in a race = 4 teams, fourth could be Team Chaotix, Babylon, Dimensioni, Eggman or Metal. The other 3 characters are extra. There might be a DLC team, but that could be made of Sega characters.

They said 15 characters. 3x5 makes 15. The extra 3 maybe the team of the big bads for this game,  a team I would like to call: Team Empire: Metal on Speed,  Infinite on Technique, and Eggman on Power...

 

I'm gonna bet that they're more or less retain the Heroes roster for the 12. Team Sonic and Dark are pretty much locked in,  and anyone affiliated with the two hedgies in the trailer have a high chance to make it.  (Lookin at you Rouge. You too Omega.)

I really want my Sticks in but she could only be in Team Rose, Team Dimension or as an extra. Don't have much hope.

They could definitely add Big for 3rd member of Team Rose since Sumo loves him, Vector too since I don't know about the whole Team Chaotix showing up, mostly Charmy, I have my doubts.

I also have doubts about Omega, he may get replaced by Eggman, or there is actually a Team Eggman with Metal Sonic, Infinite and Eggman and I'm wrong, it could be the final team.

These replacements are because of the short roster, not because I don't want Big, Omega or the Chaotix in.

Extra characters are definitely in, unless Silver and Blaze have their own team, I'm not sure. Could be, but 5 teams? Seems a bit too much.

A Bonus team for DLC could be Ulala, NiGHTS and AiAi.

Why wouldn't there be a fifth team? There are team mechanics in the game, if there wasn't a fifth team select characters would not have access to those moves.

Pre-set teams are only for the story, I believe? You can make your own custom team probably in the single race mode, I sure hope so. Or a traditional race, without teams, they should be able to have these features.

A fifth team... I dunno, I'd like some characters as bonuses too.
