Words cannot begin to sum up the amount of hype I have for this. I loved the first SaSASR so there is no way I'm missing the 2nd one. Also Panzer Dragoon!? Where do I put my money to make this game come out faster? D:

According to kellie, the game is being released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and PC Digital Download late in 2012.

I really hope the PC version gets online multiplayer this time. :<

Some more details: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-04-30-sonic-and-all-stars-racing-transformed-preview-the-saviour-of-arcade-racers

- 27 characters
- Akira mentioned, but unclear if he's in
-"These 27 characters will be unlocked in a new single-player adventure mode which is "inspired by games like Mario Galaxy"
-character can be leveled up through five ranks. Filling up the All-Star gauge with on-track moves earns you XP as well as granting access to your character's All-Star power; each level unlocks stickers and achievements as well as perk-style vehicle mods which can be equipped to alter the handling characteristics of your favourite characters. (copied that bit from TSS)

So I'm on holiday in America right now and I dont get a lot of time for internetting unless it's to talk to family back home but I check Segabits every chance I can and DAMNNNN I came here to tell everyone I cannot wait for this!

I'm a little worried that the flying and boating sections wont be as fun as the OutRun style driving of the original game but if they can live up to that it would be amazing!

I personally hope that there is a battle mode and this time its more fleashed out and less of a last min add on like the last one felt. I still think that Mario Kart 64 Balloon Battle is the most fun I've ever had on a Nintendo game and I would really be happy if this game could replicate that kind of multiplayer fun!

So far the game looks fantastic, I'm really happy to see a sequal!

On a side note I /really/ wish it was SEGA All-Star Racing and not sonic... I know it's a petty quibble and I get that Sonic is popular but seriously that isnt the way to build your brand, the Sega name needs to be out there!

Yeah, I was annoyed by the name change, but I got over it. I mean, VYSE is playable! SEGATA is rumored! They, and the Panzer Dragoon track and the story mode, make up for the title. Plus, SEGA will still be on the cover, just in the bottom corner.

I think they chose Sonic as the headliner because he sells, as you noted, and also because having Sonic as the first word means it'll be on shelves next to all the other Sonic titles. Helps sales. I recall they retitled Raiders of the Lost Ark to "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark" just so that it could sit next to the other two on the video shelves and help sales/rentals.

They're having one track per IP, that's great news!

Also, anyone wants to guess which character will be removed from SASR 1?

I'm guessing Billy Hatcher, Robo and Mobo, and Big the Cat.

I'd nerd rage if they removed Akira and Jacky.

Yeah, I'm guessing Opa Opa, Chu Chus, Bonanza Bros, Big, Zobio and Zobiko. Also, I could do without Billy. I think some of the less popular oddball (but still beloved, don't get me wrong) characters will be replaced by other popular oddball characters. I'll bet any cut characters will be given cameos via tracks from their games or trophies or npcs watching the races (like Ristar in ASR1).

I'd like to see some more female characters, like Blaze and Rouge and some humans like Arle of Puyo Puyo or Nei of PSII.

If Golden Axe get represented, then SoR and Shinobi should too.

Intriguing...what do they mean by Mario Galaxy?
