The All-Stars are pouring out of the woodwork this week, culminating in the announcement of Sega's Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Sonic, his gang of anthropomorphic buddies, and All-Stars like Crazy Taxi and the headphones guy from Jet Set Radio Future are up to their old tricks. This time though, they've each brought transforming vehicles that can fly, float and drive faster than ever. Let's see Kratos fly a jet, err... that would just end terribly.
The trailer doesn't show too much gameplay beyond the vehicle transformations, but you can likely expect sometime similar to Mario Kart once more. The transformation animations of vehicles designs are very slick looking, though they'll never live up to the real thing.
The sequel to Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing and continuation of the Sega Superstars series will be coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Vita and the 3DS. It's like they rolled Sonic up like a towel and are wringing him out for every bit of juice left. Expect Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed in late 2012.
