Following the announcement of the games release date in Japan, SEGA Japan have added nine Sonic Free Riders screenshots to the game’s website, of which eight of them are brand new and one of them a clean version of a screen we posted this morning. It appears SEGA still aren’t ready to show any new tracks, but these screens do appear to be from a graphically improved build with a full HUD intact. You’ll notice there is a green icon ability, which looks similar to the one in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity that allows players to run on foot for a short time and attack nearby players. SSMB Member, Woun has come across images of a blue character on the games site, which looks to just be a tutorial dummy.
Thanks to Woun at the SSMB for the finds!
