On your marks, get set, GO!… to your local game store, that is, because those of you who pre-order the upcoming Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will be getting your mitts on a special Bonus Edition of the game, containing exclusive content including an OutRun inspired track and Metal Sonic as a playable character.
Just announced via the SEGA Blog, this limited edition version of the game will be available to those who pre-order in North America while stocks last. In addition to bragging rights and a slightly altered box art, the incentives for getting this version are the OutRun Bay track in which “the whole race is transformed as you get to speed across the gorgeous shimmering blue ocean as well as the roads”, as well as a playable appearance from the Sonic villain of the moment, Metal Sonic. Fresh from his starring role in Sonic 4: Episode 2, he’s back to take on the blue blur once more, this time on the race track! And the air! And the sea!
And as if that’s not enough, the Bonus Edition will also contain an Emoticon Sticker Pack, which you have to collect throughout the game “as rewards for skilful play, high scores and more”.
As it stands, the Bonus Edition appears to only be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, with no mention of the Wii U or 3DS versions at all.
Also, fear not if you’re not a North American resident, as a Limited Edition of Sonic & All-Stars Racing is planned for Europe as well – but the specific details of which are yet to be revealed. Will it be the same as this Bonus Edition, or will it be different? Stay tuned to TSS for all the latest as and when it’s announced!
