Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed was announced on April 30, 2012. It is the sequel to Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing and was directed by Gareth Wilson, the former lead designer of Blur, a similar racing game that also uses power-ups as a prominent feature. It was released on the consoles Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PS Vita in late 2012, Steam and 3DS in early 2013, and iOS and Android in early 2014. The game was released in Japan on PS3 and Wii U on May 15, 2014.

Gameplay

The game's sur-name comes from its new transforming vehicle system, which allows players to traverse land, sea, and sky by transforming their vehicles mid-race via transform gates into cars, boats, and planes, allowing for much more varied tracks. Each vehicle type handles differently to simulate the differences between the environments (for example roads for cars versus water for boats). The courses also change with different features during each lap, usually changing the routes traveled on during the race, so the courses are always evolving during the race.

Characters

The game has characters from several of Sega's previous franchises making their debut in the All-Stars Racing series, including Gilius Thunderhead and Vyse who both were cut from the previous title's roster. They were chosen along with new Sega franchise characters and characters from Non-Sega franchises with additional characters planned for DLC. The two Non-Sega characters included are Ralph from the Walt Disney movie Wreck-it Ralph who is in every version, and real professional NASCAR racer Danica Patrick, who is in every version except the mobile versions. Revealed through hacking, there also exists additional characters such as characters from the Football Manager series, Shogun: Total War series, as well as an appearance from another non-Sega property, Team Fortress 2. These characters were officially revealed as exclusive characters for the PC version via a trailer released on January 17th 2013. While they are for the PC version, they appear on the disc for the console versions as well. Ryo Hazuki was announced for the newly revealed mobile versions of the game.
