Knuckles, Shadow, a new track and more join All-Stars Racing iOS in a big new update!

Perfectly timed to coincide with All-Stars Racing Transformed debut comes a massive update to SEGA’s Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing for the iOS. The game has often been cited as being a big success, making a number of critics’ best games lists and it even made it into a iPod Touch commercial. So it only makes sense that SEGA and Sumo Digital would continue to update it. The update adds: Knuckles and Shadow as playable racers, a new track – Samba de Amigo’s mountainside Sun Fair track, a new home screen icon, Airplay-out mode, HDMI-out mode, iCloud saving, character faces on the minimap (originally racers were shown as anonymous red dots, now you’ll see that Beat is trailing you), Game Center profile pics on the minimap in multiplayer and many other improvements and bug fixes. I’ve explored the game some and found another unmentioned update, the ability to buy SEGA miles via in-app purchases. Very clever way to get a bit of money out of customers, SEGA. It should be noted that Knuckles, Shadow and the new track need to be purchased with SEGA miles. They are not unlocked once you update the app.

    I want to play on my iPad and unlock knuckles for my son and then load this save data on his iPod, I assume this is possible since it says icloud saving but I can’t see a load from the cloud option anywhere?

    • Hi Tanya, I think I can help. First, make sure iCloud saving is on by going to: settings > iCloud > storage & backup (at the bottom)

      If it’s on, select “manage storage” in “storage & backup” and you’ll see your devices. Select the device with the Sonic Racing data and scroll down the list to “Sonic Racing”. If it’s marked as “on” and both the iPad and the iPod are on the same account and are both using the iCloud, they should be sharing the same game save. I don’t have more than one device, so you might want to test it by unlocking something on the iPad (like a cheap track or racer) and then see if the iPod syncs and updates the game.

      I’ll shoot a message to the dev to see if they can answer your question as well.
