'Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing' (ALL) Gets Banjo and Kazooie Cameo, Avatar Support

In a frantic battle to the checkered flag, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing sees Sonic and friends speed around tracks set in medieval castle ramparts, lush rain forests and bustling cities, all taken from the rich and varied universes of Sonic & SEGA.

In a frantic battle to the checkered flag, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing sees Sonic and friends speed around tracks set in medieval castle ramparts, lush rainforests and bustling cities, all taken from the visually rich and varied universes of Sonic and SEGA. Fan favourites such as Dr. Eggman, Tails, AiAi, Amigo and many more will join Sonic in their custom built vehicles, revving their engines and jostling to stay ahead of the pack. Each character will race around the track in cars, planes, motorbikes, and in AiAi’s case – a banana mobile! Secret short cuts, swift handling and avoiding strategically placed obstacles are certainly the best way to get to the top of the podium.

And winning is only part of the fun in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing! Each character has a specific All Star move such as Super Sonic, Banana Blitz and Tails Tornado, allowing a quick way for competitors to get back into the race! Power ups and weapons can also be collected around the tracks and used against the opposition to ensure they don’t become a threat to that number one position… Players can battle it out in single or multiplayer mode, allowing up to four friends to race in frantic split-screen action, or up to eight players to compete online in the ultimate racing showdown.

Banjo and Kazooie are back on the scene and back in the driving seat for their appearance in the upcoming Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing.

The bear and bird are of course old hands/paws/wings at this sort of thing, making their game debut way back in 1997's Diddy Kong Racing and getting back behind the wheel for both Banjo Pilot and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts in the intervening years. This time around they'll be competing in their custom-built Bolt Bucket vehicle against the likes of Sonic, Knuckles, AiAi, Amigo and a host of other unexpected petrolheads from big SEGA franchises.

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing also features a second Rare connection with the inclusion of Avatars, which appear in fully playable form and can take part in races by jumping into the 'Avacar'.
