Looks like the mystery of the third bonus character may have been solved and it’s a Sega character this time! Today, Sega has announced Sonic and All-Stars Racing Bonus Edition. This special edition contains an exclusive Outrun Bay track as well as Metal Sonic with a levitating vehicle. In addition are some exclusive emoticon stickers. This bonus edition is only available as a pre-order exclusive (although I’m sure the bonus items will be available for sale as DLC later). There will also be a seperate limited edition available for Europe, but no details as of yet. Read on for for Sega’s official announcement.
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Bonus Edition Announced
The Bonus edition of the thrilling new racing experience from SEGA will contain a brand-new track and character plus various collectable items and will be available as pre-order while supplies last.
The exclusive OutRun Bay track contains all the standard race modes found in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, plus challenges and time trials specific to the track. This time though, the whole race is transformed as you get to speed across the gorgeous shimmering blue ocean as well as the roads in a spectacular level inspired by SEGA’s classic arcade racer OutRun. Sonic the Hedgehog’s popular rival Metal Sonic explodes on to the tracks in the exclusive Metal Sonic Mod Pack in the Bonus Edition of the game; this prototype levitation vehicle was crafted purely to race – and race it must! In addition to the track and character, an Emoticon Sticker Pack can also be found in the Bonus Edition. These collectables are found throughout the game and are given as rewards for skilful play, high scores and more.
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will speed on to the Xbox 360, PlayStation3, and PlayStation Vita on November 20, 2012 in North America.
