E3 is less than two weeks away, and Walmart already couldn’t contain themselves when accidentally dropping names on several yet to be revealed titles. Now, after a tease from the Sonic social channels cheekily put up in the midst of yesterday’s Pokémon announcements, the retail giant has accidentally ousted yet another game, this time being the anticipated racer SEGA teased way back at SXSW.
Team Sonic Racing was revealed early for a Nintendo Switch release so far, and given its looks, it seems highly likely that All Stars Racing developer Sumo Digital is back on board after rumors sparked in late January. The full product description for the game continues below:
Team Sonic Racing combines the best elements of arcade and fast-paced competitive style racing as you face-off with friends in intense multiplayer racing. Race together and work together as a team by sharing power-ups and speed boosts. Take control of your racing style – Choose from 3 distinct character types and unlock game changing vehicle customization options to suit your racing style. Speed up. Gear Up Team Racing at Sonic Speed!
Online Multiplayer & Local Co-Op Modes: 12 players per race, 4 player split screen, and various offline / online race modes including Grand Prix Mode, Exhibition Mode, Time-Trial and Team Adventure Mode.
Team Racing: Race as a team, win as a team. Use various team moves to assist your teammates, knock out opponents and unleash your Team Ultimate.
Performance & Skin Customization: Alter the appearance and handling of your vehicle.
Wisps: 14 spectacular offensive and defensive items to help overcome rival teams and get ahead!
Adventure Mode: Unique story experience where players are introduced to basic game features and characters.
Various Characters and Classes: 15 playable characters from across the Sonic Universe and 3 distinct character types including Speed, Technique, and Power classes.
Now it’s a waiting game for either SEGA’s official confirmation, or Walmart chalking their own leak up to being “speculative in nature” like before… barring the box art, screenshots, and elaborate details, of course.
