Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed coming to mobile

Sega to release racing game for iOS and Android this winter; Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Demon Tribe, and Rhythm & Thief also coming to mobiles

by

Sega of America today announced four new games coming to mobile and tablet devices beginning next month, including Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and a remastered version of Sonic The Hedgehog 2.

"As the audience for mobile gaming continues to grow, we're proud to expand our portfolio of digital titles with a wide array of genres," Sega vice president of Digital Business Chris Olson said in a statement.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a sequel to 2011's mobile game Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing, itself based on 2010 console game Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.

The new mobile game--due out this winter for iOS and Android--features a reimagined World Tour, four-player local and online races, and "comprehensive" social integration.

A remastered version of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will be released for iOS and Android in November, Sega also announced today. Remastered audio and a frame rate of 60fps are promised for this new version of the game that originally introduced Sonic's sidekick Tails.

This version of the game will be available as a free update for those who already own the game on iOS. It is coming to Android for the first time.

Also launching in the coming months from Sega is role-playing game Demon Tribe (iOS; winter 2013) and adventure game Rhythm Thief & the Paris Caper (iOS; early 2014).

Sega did not announce prices or specific launch dates for any of its upcoming mobile games.

My 8 year old cousin will be excited about this.

Why is Sonic driving a car?  Couldn't he just run faster?

Darn I'm gonna have to buy this game again?  Already have it for the U, but having a portable version is just too tempting.

I can see people missing their stops on buses and trains when this game is released.

Sonic seems to be doing much better on mobile than he is on consoles lately.

Cool stuff.  It says it'll be a "reimagined" World Tour, so it'll be similar to the console/PC title but not the same.  Fine with me.  Sometimes I like when a port is made that is exactly the same as previous versions but sometimes I can also appreciate ports that are new versions of the original game.  Depends on how well it's done really.

Stupidily fun game. Same as LEGO series, they shouldn't allow adults play this kind of games.

Love the PC version of this. Never liked Mario Kart but this really made me engage with it for a number of hours. Not sure if I will get this version though on my Android. I'll have to see reviews first.

@nparks LOL, I don't get it either. It doesn't make sense in game, but was decently fun,
