It seems that the rumors are all coming true with SEGA moving forward with a Sonic only racing game, it seems that this time it will be called ‘Team Sonic Racing‘. At least according to this Wal-Mart listing. So far the game has only been found for the Nintendo Switch (we haven’t found a listing for other consoles yet), costing $39.96, according to the product page.
We also have these screenshots below, showing off that our heroes are driving actual cars and not Mario style karts. It also seems that the title might be a play on Crash Team Racing or maybe it has to do with Sonic Teams development name? Team Sonic Racing seems to take ques from the past ‘SEGA All-Stars Racing‘ games by having unlockables and upgrades for your vehicles. The game is also set to offer 12 players per race, 4 player split-screen and a offline ‘Team Adventure mode’. Find out more after the break:

-Come on let Rouge be playable , she wasn’t in first two games
To be fair, Rouge was not even conceptualised at the time Sonic Drift 1 and 2 were released.
I think he’s talking about the All-Stars racing games, not Sonic Drift 1 and 2.
Turned out to be true. Not All Stars 3. :/
I’ll pass, even if this is reportedly good. My interest is slashed by it being Sonic only.
I fully expected this after the tease and yet I’m still disappointed. I’ll buy it because I’m sure it will be good….I just think extra SEGA fanservice would have made it better.
Wisps! What is it with the wisps?!
It seems like it’s Sonic characters only. That’s a shame, but completely understandable. I’ll just have to race in a Forklift elsewhere.
Despite being disappointed about the lack of SEGA Fanservice, I hope that some great tracks inspired by Sonic levels are from the various games throughout his history from Sonic 1 to Sonic Triple Trouble to Sonic Adventure to Rush to Colours and all else in between! (I love Planet Wisp so I am optimistic)
It’s a celebration of Sonic after Mania I think, although what is to say that they are not making a SEGA fanservice game in the future?
Yeah, but those are crossover games, part of their own four-game, All-stars/Superstars series.
This one is clearly part of the Sonic series.
