All-Stars Transformed: Joe Musashi races through Adder’s Lair

Leave it to IGN to spoil SEGA’s fun. A recent post over at the site revealed a hell of a lot of new Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed details. The BIGGEST is that, yes Shinobi fans, Joe Musashi himself is a confirmed racer! IGN has also revealed that Adder’s Lair from Golden Axe is a new track. Also appearing is Jet Set Radio’s Tokyo-to which features a gang war playing out in the background which affects the racers. Previously revealed Gilius Thunderhead finally gets his public showing, and the expected return of Shadow is confirmed. After the break, another tasty screen and the trailer!

    This has statisfied me… Greatly.


    I think that properly shows my excitement.

  2. Calling it now: His horse is his All-Stars move.

  4. Added the trailer, another screen and a sneak peek at Joe’s jet ski in the featured bar (this was the only size IGN had)

    Very happy with the addition of Musashi. Such a shame he is not in the trailer, I really need to see those transformations, the hoverboard from Shinobi III would be so cool for the water sections…

    Vyse kind of looks a bit shit in CG, but the Golden Axe stuff looks seriously amazing. I adore Gilius’ design, and the level looks to be seriously awesome. Even more exciting is how there is only just one level for each IP, making each one more memorable and feeling less tedious. I liked the last game a lot, but one Billy Hatcher level was far too much… and we got three. Gah.

    YES! I am sooooo glad they are branching out more in this game.

    My god sumo digital you are awesome

  8. CrazyTails says:

    This really made my bad day. Vyse looks awesome. I really love how sumo brings back old faces in HD. Vyse may probably become my favourite character 😀

    Wow! This news has made my day. I hope they keep Ryo Hazuki from Shenmue in again and maybe add Segata Sanshiro in this time, I heard he was almost close to being added in the last game, speaking of Shinobi, how about Streets of Rage consiring that’s just as popular as Shinobi, I’m surprised that they’ve done nothing with that IP in All stars games yet they do plenty of Golden Axe stuff, imagine Axel Stone, Blaze or even Shiva from Streets or Rage 2 and 3.

    this is great! this game is going to be unbelievably Awesome.

    I really really really want this to be an amazing game! Make it happen sumo!

    Joe !!
    Do want Harrier !

    • I want harrier too! One interview seemed to say that Harrier wasn’t happening as a racer (might have been but I still have my fingers crossed for a Fantasy Zone track tying together Fantasy Zone and Space Harrier.

    Come on Sumo , please announce Nights 🙂

    All I can say is “yes!”

  15. Kori-Maru says:

    Just in time when I was just finishing up my cosplay.

  16. Upsidedown Fuji says:

    Vyse in HD.My eyes are tearing up. Is there hope for a port some day? I hope so.

  17. SkyBlue says:

    Looks great to race in.

    I see there is more love to AM7 this time around.

    Streets of Rage, Phantasy Star or Valkyria Chronicles would mean we almost have a full house! (I would love the very latter myself despite the former being my favourite SEGA game)

  18. DCbrotha says:

    DAY 1…………BUY!

    Looks outstanding!

    I sure hope Sumo has more DLC planned for this one….. Ryo and Metal Sonic was not enough DLC for the first SASASR!

    AND SEGA….. Please have NEW surprises for E3 2012, announcing every game you already have is plain boring with NO excitement!

    we need the streets of rage characters! imagine axel, blaze, or even skate, driving a fucking cop car. amazing.
    but to shinobi fans, joe is a great addition.
