Team Sonic Racing is a "brand-new racing experience" that combines "the best elements of arcade and fast-paced competitive style racing with unique vehicle customisation options". Whether this is a cheeky way of avoiding any Mario Kart references remains to be seen, given the reveal video shows off very little. But hey, who doesn't love a bit of Sonic going fast?
The trailer, which shows us very little, is embedded below, however, the press release we got actually has some serious detail. And so here's the official word on Team Sonic Racing:
