Sonic & All-Stars Racing Zooms To Smartphones, Along With New Rhythm Thief

Sega are bringing a couple of their games over to smartphones this winter, starting with Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, their stylish crossover racer that released on PC and consoles a few months ago.


The iOS and Android version of the game will feature both local and online multiplayer races for up to 4 players, and will also include “social integration” of some sort.


Also headed to iOS and Android is a “remastered” version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Sega say the game will feature “upgraded visuals” along with remastered audio, and will run at 60 frames-per-second. Existing iOS owners of the game will get this version of Sonic 2 as a free update. For Android device users, this will be the first release of the game.


Finally, Sega are developing another Rhythm Thief title, Rhythm Thief & the Paris Capter. This is inspired by the Nintendo 3DS title, Rhythm Thief and the Emperor’s Treasure, and will be available in early 2014.

    to be honest racing is the only genre in which investment is forgivable if a company is interested in mobile n tablet gaming. cause using the tablet as a steering is awesome!

    • John Diamond

      unlike using the 3ds gyroscope

  • Hollowkoopa

    Does this mean that Rhythm Thief will become a iOS series, i will be pretty sad if it did.

    • Phantom R

      I’d be sad too. Hopefully they’ll eventually make a sequel for 3DS…

  • Kuronoa

    Rhythm Thief sequel!? I must have more info on this.
    edit: not sequel, but a remaster? oh…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    thanks Sega….

  • Luis Camargo

    Rhythm Thief & the Paris Capter

    Please, please, let this be a 3DS title.

  • tubers

    What kind of mobile game is it? Premium priced (no IAPs)? Freemium/IAPs?

  • Eefara

    “Capter”? What the heck is a “capter”? :P

    • ReidHershel

      Basically to capture or to detect, according to wiktionary.

    Only plausible response to this:

  • Kalis Konig

    Watch Atlus revive the Trauma series as an IOS/Android series.

  • yellowmage

    Haven’t played the original Rhythm Thief yet, but I hope this new one also gets a 3DS release, even if it’s only on the eShop.

    And this new SASRT had better (A) have Wreck-It Ralph and (B) see an eventual Windows Phone release.

    (B) for Sonic 2, too.

  • ImminentBread

    Yes, that is a shot of the Sonic & All-Stars console version… but it’s the first one. Not Transformed.

  • Setsu Oh

    it is way to slow to have sonic in its title..
