Sonic racing in a car. Makes as much sense now as it did in Sonic Drift.

Well, never expected this :?

Why don't they just make a Fighters Megamix 2 instead?

Pretty low expectations for this, at least it won't have blue shells though.

I'm actually going to be looking forward to this. Superstar Tennis was a great game, so I don't see why this can't be decent too.

Ooh, I need this! Loving Robotnik's Egg-O-Matic with attached monster truck wheels!
I only see Sonic characters though, who are the SEGA Superstars, y'reckon? Says AiAi and Amigo in the description, so maybe Ulala, Alex Kidd, Gilius Seed? Same folks as in Superstar Tennis?

Notice it'll be on the DS but not the PSP. This makes me sad, and unable to play it :(

amigo was in the advert as well, no other characters though which i thought was strange. but then again amigo is the only other sega character to resurface in a game of his own

I'd expect they would expand the roster from Superstars, there's certainly a lot of good possibilities when it comes to old characters and imaginative . Alex Kidd's bike is a must surely?

Yeah, Alex Kidd on a BMX! Or maybe even a scooter-copter thing? Tails gets to fly, so why not?

Let's see...
Ulala in a space hovercar thingy, those mice from ChuChu Rocket in a rocketship, Gillius on a dragon or lizard or something, one of those Panzer Dragoon things (a Panzer Dragoon course!), the Daytona car, the Bonanza Bros. in their getaway van, chased by a Virtua Cop police car. This is going to be amazing!

It's the mini games that I'm most looking forward too. The Superstars ones were awesome, especially the Virtua Cop one. If they put the effort needed into this game, there could be some incredible moments.

Nah, it is coming out on Wii too. Can't miss a chance for wiggly-waggly steering controls! :lol: Only platforms that are missing out are PS2 and PSP.

How about a Streets of Rage of character in the police car that can be called in on the first game?

Haven't been following the game, but this piece of news caught my eye. Seems that Sega will be including Ryo from Shenmue in the game complete with Motorcycle and Forklift Truck :mrgreen:
Still not that interested in the game, but I might pick it up if the price is right. Here's a link to the Ryo trailer:
