Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is a upcoming racing game which sets several characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog game series against other Sega characters. It's development was announced May 28, 2009. It is in development for five systems, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS, and PC. The game is being scored by Richard Jacques, who is well known for his soundtrack in Sonic R and the Saturn version of Sonic 3D Blast.
It features multiple vehicles similar to Diddy Kong Racing, but each character has a custom vehicle. Vehicles include planes, motorbikes, and cars. Each character has an All-Star move which can hit other racers and will slow them down while providing an oportunity to gain a higher position in the race. Power-ups and Weapons can be picked up around the track. Players will be able to play with up to four players in split-screen or up to eight players online.

Console Exclusive Characters
Banjo-Kazooie and Xbox 360 Avatars
Ever since the Leaked Sony-SEGA document, talks were revealed for the possibility of console exclusive characters. This led to much speculation over which characters could potentially appear in the game. This quote from the document revealed a part of the discussion.
"Sonic Racing Open to DLC to differentiate PS3 SKU – not ratchet and clank but other characters maybe characters from Rare or Fable universes"
On December 16, 2009, a possible slip-up on SEGA's behalf showed the cover-art for every console version. Every version was the same, aside for the Xbox 360's version, which showed Banjo and Kazooie in Tails' place on the cover, and adding "With Banjo-Kazooie" to the title of the game. The cover art was quickly pulled from SEGA's website. The following day, SEGA released the cover-art in high-resolution, and releasing a trailer over Xbox Live announcing Banjo-Kazooie and Xbox 360 Avatars as playable characters.
