Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed Coming
A follow up to Sega's answer to Mario Kart will reportedly be launched this year...
Sega found moderate success when it released Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing on virtually every platform under the sun in 2010, so it comes as little surprise to hear that the publisher is preparing a sequel to the kart-racing game.
Kotaku is reporting that a Sega rep confirmed the development of a follow-up at the Toy Fair in New York. Little else was confirmed, other than it is planned for a release at the end of the year and that new characters and vehicles will be disclosed in the coming months.
A sequel was pertained to last-month in an oddly-flavoured rumour that suggested the game was in development for 3DS, Wii U and Sony's Vita handheld. No platforms were mentioned in the latest report, but the original racer hit both Wii and DS, so it's probably safe to say Nintendo fans will be well-covered in the event of a follow-up.
We're awaiting an official confirmation from Sega on the game, so stay tuned.
