New Sonic Free Riders Trailer, New Screenshots

SEGA Europe has just unveiled a new trailer for Xbox 360 Kinect exclusive title Sonic Free Riders. The trailer showcases a variety of tracks, including some we’ve never seen before, such as a volcanic themed area and an ancient ruin themed area. A new piece of music is played in the trailer and fits well with the series usual fare. The trailer focuses on introducing viewers to the game and how it works with Xbox 360’s new device, such as turns, speed, jumps, ring grabbing and track specific motions like swimming.

Black Spy at the SSMB has spotted a new character joining the series in the above screen-cap. Yes, it seems Metal Sonic had so much fun competing in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing that he decided to take part in this game, too.

  1. Yay! First commen*shot*

    ^^’

    Awesome trailer is awesome.

    Minecarts ftw

    lol at 0:20 sonic sounds like his voice from Sonic CD.

  2. They’re trying reeeaaally hard to sell this game. Even I love Metal Sonic, but the whole Kinect idea wreaks of “gimmick”, and after the initial run, even if someone enjoys a play-through of the story mode, no one’s gonna feel like playing this game over and over again.

  3. Heck-heck-heck YEAH! Oh boy! My favorite blue metallic Sonic rival, Metal Sonic, is gonna be playable! I’m-a gonna love playing as my favorite blue robot boy!

    Now that Metal’s been confirmed, I remember news saying this game, like the last two, will have a story mode. Eggman was a character in the story mode of the last two games. Since it is likely that Eggman will be in this story mode, I wonder if Metal Sonic is gonna have a role in the story alongside his creator?

  4. I’m very happy to see that Sega is using Metal Sonic more. Hopefully this means he will become a more prominent character in the series.

  5. That would great it will be team race for 2 players?:
    Sonic/Amy or Sonic/Tails
    Jet/Wave
    Knuckles/Storm
    Tails/Eggman
    Metal Sonic/Omega
    Shadow/Rouge
    Silver/Blaze
    Cream/Big
    or else?

  6. Aw man, I was hoping that in that last shot with the random commercial dude they would do something cool like make his shadow into Sonic, but of course they don’t do anything marginally creative…

    Perhaps I should make commercials…

  8. Eighth picture:
    Is Sonic and Amy holding their hands? I knew it this going be happening! SONAMY FOREVER!
    I really hope there’s Sonic/Amy scenes in the story mode.
    Video:
    I just saw Shadow, Cream and Rouge. But Metal Sonic! I’m so love this game!
    The graphics and models are way better than that damn Sonic Riders Zero Gravity.
    SEGA did good job on this game.
    The new voices are going be great! I hope Kyla Pratt will voice Amy Rose, and some old Sonic voices are coming back I hope. Jack Black as Knuckles!

  9. @Ryan, you really need to find somewhere else to post your ideas. It’s nice that you are a devoted fan and such, but come on. Unless you are trolling of course.

    METAL SONIC AWESOME!!111!! I want this, but I wish Shad, Rouge and The Chaotix could be in it too.

  10. AWESOME! Metal freakin Sonic! 8D

    Okay, we get it guys! Nomatter how good the game is you won’t buy it cuz it’s on kinect. What’s the point in saying it over and over? -_-

    Man you guys are just mean. .__.

    Now back onto the trailer.
    Judging by how the previous games were, this game should be cool cuz it looks even better. XD I can’t do all the things that guy did to the extreme tho. (But maybe he got that way playing Sonic Free Riders. XD)

    Darn.. I was hoping to hear some voices. They’re really tight about that when there’s new voices huh? When Griffith took the role in the games I only heard it twice in the trailers. Once as Sonic and once as Shadow. And I thought it was Ryan Drummond and David Humphrey still til I found out the voices changed. >_> lol Oh well. It won’t be long now. 😀

  11. @Ryan
    No offense to Sonamy fans.. but I really hope there AREN’T any scenes like that. .__. I think it’s killing Sonic’s character and taking away the coolness of the guy, especially considering all that Amy’s done it’d seem like he’d have bad taste to actually like her for anything more than looks. And he’s a good guy. XD

    But the Jack Black thing as Knuckles was just funny!! XDD

    @BlueChaos

    I think she’s in the game. I mean we even saw Eggman and Metal Sonic. And so far I believe this game will follow the trend of the first two and at LEAST have:
    Sonic
    Tails
    Knuckles
    Amy
    Jet
    Wave
    Storm
    Eggman
    Cream
    Shadow
    Rouge

    as I see those characters as a given cuz they’re the main characters of the series (except Bablyon Rogues but they’re the main characters of the game so whatever. XD)

  12. @ Ax and BlueChaos:
    As I said in a comment further up. Shadow, Cream and Rouge can be spotted in this trailer if you look closely 😉

  13. “Darn.. I was hoping to hear some voices. They’re really tight about that when there’s new voices huh? When Griffith took the role in the games I only heard it twice in the trailers. Once as Sonic and once as Shadow. And I thought it was Ryan Drummond and David Humphrey still til I found out the voices changed. >_> lol Oh well. It won’t be long now.”

    That’s because alot of fans has already heard the 4Kids actors in Sonic X so it’s not such a huge deal when Sega hires the Sonic X actors to be the official voiceactors in the games

  14. “so it’s not such a huge deal when Sega hires the Sonic X actors to be the official voiceactors in the games”

    … Haha, right. 😛

  15. Yeah, cause we’ve already heard the voices in the anime so Sega didn’t care if we’ve heard then in game trailers
