Team Sonic Racing (PS4, Switch, Xbox One, PC)
After almost seven years, Sonic the Hedgehog is returning to kart racing with Team Sonic Racing. Sumo Digital is the team behind the new title, and it will be the developer’s third racer featuring the Blue Blur and his friends.
The game will have 15 playable characters at launch and will feature racing complete with tricks, drifting, and power-ups. What sets Team Sonic Racing apart though is its focus on working with your fellow drivers.
During each race, there will be four teams of three that can share power-ups and perform group moves like a Team Ultimate. Working with other racers is essential because the teams overall ranking is determined by where each member is placed.
While kart racing games are not nearly as common as they once were, the value Team Sonic Racing places on teamwork should allow it to stand out against any plumber or bandicoot-led competition.
Team Sonic Racing is currently set to release on May 21 following a delay late last year. Hopefully, the extra time that has been given to Sumo Digital will allow them to release a title that can build on their experience making Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
