Some of you may already be familiar with the Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing game, having been released for the Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 3 back in 2010. We’ve also heard that the game is now heading to iOS devices.
As Marin over on the intomobile.com website noted, Sega allowed them to have a sneak preview of the upcoming iOS version of the Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing game recently, although it was an early alpha build they looked at so they couldn’t really judge the game yet.
There appears to be two ways of controlling the vehicles in the Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing game. Players can either tilt the device to steer, as well as hitting the on-screen drifting buttons and brakes, or if they prefer they can use the on-screen d-pad.
One of the major appeals to the upcoming iOS game in Marin’s opinion is the list of characters that you can choose to race with. Besides having Sonic as an obvious choice, you also have the option of Tails, Dr. Robotnik and many others including Ryo from Shenmue.
Although the Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing game doesn’t feature Game Center support at this stage, Sega has hinted that the final version will have the feature. We may not have an exact release date yet, but we do know that is due to arrive on the Apple App Store this spring.
You can view a video for the upcoming game — which will be available for the iPhone and iPod Touch — below this post. Have you already played the PC or console version of the Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing game? If so, do you think you’d enjoy playing it on your iOS device?
