Sonic the Hedgehog is heading to the race track later this year for Team Sonic Racing, a new arcade-style racing game from developer Sumo Digital. Team Sonic Racing is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One this winter, Sega announced today.
Team Sonic Racing, which Sega teased in March, will focus on team-based races, as its title suggests. Teams will compete in races of up to 12 players, and Sega promises online multiplayer and local co-op modes, including four-player split-screen.
As teams of three — Sonic, Tails and Shadow, for example — players will use moves to assist their allies and knock out opponents. Racers can also build up and unleash Team Ultimate attacks on other racers. Sega promises 15 playable characters and car customization options. Team Sonic Racing will also feature power-ups based on Wisps, the alien characters introduced in Sonic Colors.
