Pre-Order Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed For A Bonus OutRun Track

By Ishaan . August 4, 2012 . 10:33am

Sega have announced a “bonus edition” Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. This version of the game, which is only available via pre-order, will include an exclusive track based on Sega’s OutRun series of arcade racers. Additionally, an exclusive vehicle featuring Metal Sonic will be included in the bonus edition as well.


Sega say Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is scheduled for release on November 20th, but only mention Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions on their blog. Dates for the Nintendo 3DS and PC versions haven’t been announced.

    This game looks fun, I think it’ll be on par with Mario Kart..if not, just that bit better…

  • MrRobbyM

    Really excited for the game but that’s some terrible cover art there.

  • $30632660

    Good luck, but I’m not buying, I don’t do that exclusive to preorders bs.

  • ArcadiaSymphonia

    Ill get it the first was ok but i think this one has really great potential to be better

  • thaKingRocka

    If they offer that bonus for the PC version, maybe I’ll take it. The console versions ran pretty poorly with the first installment. I loved my time with this game at 60fps with a 360 controller thanks to the PC. I was disappointed at not being able to use Ryo Hazuki’s forklift though.

    Too bad that unless you’re playing offline you’ll only be able to race the bonus track with other people who got the first print of the game.

    They’ll eventually have DLC for it, but by that time no one but those few who constantly play just one game will be on it.

  • Ricewarrior

    Might as well call it Sonic’s Racing Transformed since the box art is just plastered with him.

    … oh wait, nevermind. You can barely see the Super Monkey Ball Monkey >_>

      …I’m a Vita player, but I’m not entirely sure I want to unite over what looks like another attempt to market a quick & easy game by throwing nostalgic characters at it.  I did that with Sega Superstars Tennis, and still feel unclean. <_<

      • RmanX1000

        Tennis was crap. The racers are actually well done. So idc if theyre doin it for a cheap buck :P


      gotta get Vita version than 3DS ver:P

  • Zonic505

    Outrun track?! I’m in, though I wanna see what the console exclusive characters are first.

  • AnimeRemix

    I had the money to pre-order… But… That money was just used to pre-order Persona 4 Arena… 

    *in dark corner crying* Must… Clean dishes… For… $5… Again…T_T

    • Rentekabond

      At least you get $5. In my house, washing dishes and doing chores is a given…

      • Locklear93

         No kidding.  I think I was able to finagle extra money from doing housework ONCE–and it was hours of basement cleaning torture.  But, it got me Wolfenstein 3d…

      • AnimeRemix

        That’s what a lot of my friends say actually… x_x

  • AzuNo17

    A game flaunting the “All-Stars” in its name should at least wear a cover that shows it. At the very LEAST bring out the newcomers (Vyse; PD Dragon). Not AiAi, Eggman, and 5 narcissistic Sonics…

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      But they also said “Sonic” up there lol. So of course Sonic and its crew will be more promoted there.^_^

      and they do bring Vyse as playable and PD dragon as some kind of boss there lol. You can check the info from the previous info lol.

      • Locklear93

         Every time I see Vyse, Aika, or Fina get a cameo instead of Eternal Arcadia 2, I die a little inside. >_<

        • Spirit Macardi

          At least they get cameos though. It shows that they’re clearly not forgotten, and that they could yet have a future.

          • Alex Kidd’s in this thing and he’s got no future.

          • Spirit Macardi

            Yeah, but Alex Kidd is only gone because he was outright replaced. Skies of Arcadia hasn’t seen any games attempting to replace it, or even mimic it, so it stands a better chance.

          • Locklear93

             Eh, call me a cynic, but I’m not holding my breath after all these years. The only Sega property I’ve ever really loved that got a sequel was Shenmue.  All the rest languish, and even Shenmue never came close to wrapping its story up.

          • Spirit Macardi

            I can certainly understand that. However, I’ve seen other game companies that have both failed to make new games in a series and don’t include the characters of those series in cameos. So at least Arcadia still has one of those going for it.

  • The_Real_Oyashiro

    Why does Sonic need a car?

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Because if he runs, this will not even be a race anymore lol.^_^ Be happy there, Sonic is giving them some slack lol.^_^

    • Because it is a car racing game.


      coz he’s lazy..

  • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester

    Why not a Daytona USA track or a Sega Rally track?  ;_;

    • Zonic505

      Daytona USA track would be awesome. Or even cooler, the Hornet being driven by a Sega character (like Akira & Jacky driving the Outrun car) that transforms into the After Burner jet while flying.

  • That cover really is a bit odd in my opinion. I feel like it should at least be a bit more colourful.

    But anyway – Metal Sonic! They do know how to tempt me… (Although Vyse is still my main reason!)

  • I don’t like pre-order only DLC.  A part of the game I will never get again as oppose to a bonus and not part of the game physical item makes me sad.

    • Michael Synodis

       Agreed. If a game company wants to entice people to buy it early with a physical bribe, that’s fine. But this feels like I’m being punished for not buying it day one, regardless of how true that really is.

    Sonic: Hmmm so Mario karts can fly and go under water. Hey tails lets upgrade owers to do all that and even turn into a space ship!

    Tails: Umm what about *Gears*  have you forgetting about them? there even faster then the cars plus they can fly

    Sonic: BUT can it go under water?????

    Tails: Ahhh no

    Sonic: Upgrade my ride now! before I smack  a [email protected]#

    Tails: Ok! OK!
