Sega Unveils New Team Sonic Racing Content at SXSW Panel
Today at SXSW, Sega hosted their annual, “Gotta Go Fast: The Official Sonic the Hedgehog,” panel, where the Sonic team discussed new elements from the forthcoming arcade-style racing experience, Team Sonic Racing.
One of the highlights of today’s panel was the reveal of the first full episode of Team Sonic Racing Overdrive, a two-part series developed by Tyson Hesse and Neko Productions that takes on a similar animation style as the Sonic Mania Adventures web series. The first episode features Team Sonic, Team Rose and Team Dark as they face off at Wisp Circuit. Watch as the teams race against the diabolical Dr. Eggman and attempt to outsmart his sneaky tricks and disastrous distractions to make it to the finish line.
In addition, check out the best ways to customize your ride in a new spotlight episode featuring Sonic Series Producer Takashi Iizuka. Explore the customization menu to get a peek at how to obtain and use mod pods, power ups and other personalization options like paint job alterations, new vehicle skins and custom horns. By earning in-game credits, players can venture to the garage to unlock parts for the front of their car, the rear or the wheels, allowing for alterations to the vehicle’s performance and handling.
Team Sonic Racing is set to release May 21st on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
