At SXSW, SEGA hosted their annual, “Gotta Go Fast: The Official Sonic the Hedgehog,” panel, where the Sonic team discussed new elements from the forthcoming arcade-style racing experience, Team Sonic Racing, and how they’ve developed an iconic style of music for the Sonic franchise. Panel speakers included Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka, Sr. Community Manager Aaron Webber, Director of Product Development Austin Keys, Sonic Series Composer Jun Senoue and TV Animation Production Coordinator Jasmin Hernandez.

One of the main highlights of today’s panel was the reveal of the first full episode of Team Sonic Racing Overdrive, a two-part series developed by Tyson Hesse and Neko Productions that takes on a similar animation style as the popular Sonic Mania Adventures web series. The first episode will feature Team Sonic, Team Rose and Team Dark as they face off at Wisp Circuit. Watch as the teams race against the diabolical Dr. Eggman and attempt to outsmart his sneaky tricks and disastrous distractions to make it to the finish line.

Check out the best ways to customize your ride for the upcoming Team Sonic Racing in this new spotlight episode featuring Sonic Series Producer Takashi Iizuka. Explore the customization menu to get a peek at how to obtain and use mod pods, power ups and other personalization options like paint job alterations, new vehicle skins and custom horns. By earning in-game credits, players can venture to the garage to unlock parts for the front of their car, the rear or the wheels, allowing for alterations to the vehicle’s performance and handling.

SEGA has released another upbeat anthem for Team Sonic Racing by Sonic Series Composer, Jun Senoue with Japanese electronic music artist, TORIENA. Set to the racer’s “Bingo Party” map, this song is what winning sounds like. Turn up the volume and get ready to party to the new song.
