(Jan. 21, 2012) — Don’t you love anonymous tipsters? Well, one has tipped off The Sonic Stadium that a new Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing game is in development for the Wii U, 3DS, and Vita.
The source claims that an employee of Sumo Digital, the company that made the first Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, said this:
“Now working on another title for Sega on 3DS, VITA and WiiU. [The] title we are working on is top secret but the last game we did for them was Sonic And Sega All-Star Racing, so the logical conclusion would be… ”
The Sonic Stadium says they have checked the source and that they’re pretty confident in its legitimacy.
Apparently the tipster also told The Sonic Stadium that this is a brand new Sonic racing game, and a full on sequel to Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing and not a simple port of the original game to the newest platforms on the scene in 2012.
I really enjoyed Sonic & SEGA Racing back in 2010 when it released. At the time there wasn’t many kart racers on the PS3 and Xbox 360 so that was a huge factor in how much I enjoyed. I’d be open to another, especially if that means super competitive online kart races for the Wii U launch.
While you’re salivating over the idea of another excellent Sonic & SEGA racer, please take the time to sign our petition for Nintendo to fix glitches and rampant communication errors in Mario Kart 7 if you love kart racers as much as you say you do!
