Some new previews and interviews have appeared online following SEGA’s Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed news updates the other day. According to EverybodyPlays, SEGA held a press event in the UK for Transformed earlier this week where attendees were treated to some boat riding on the Thames. In their preview, EverybodyPlays reveals that the flying sections will have a ‘Flight Assist’ option that guides players with a line and helps them get to grips with the controls. The game will also include 132 mods, over 100 stickers, and will be fully playable in co-op in the Grand Prix and World Tour modes.

In another preview at SPOnG written by our own Dreadknux, Sumo Digital have revealed that the final returning track is Roulette Road. The other three are for those who haven’t been keeping up are Shibuya Downtown, Egg Hangar, and Sunshine Tour.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Sumo Digital’s Gareth Wilson has confirmed that a Billy Hatcher ice track is in the game, but also said that Daytona and Shenmue tracks won’t be making appearances.
“[For peaceful scenery] we wanted forest, so we went with Shinobi. For Billy Hatcher, we picked an ice level. For a lava level, we had Golden Axe.”
“Daytona is probably my favourite game of Sega’s roster, but it didn’t really fit with this because, what do we do for flying or boating? For Outrun there’s beach, there’s water, so you know what, maybe we could that?
“We didn’t want a dock – if we wanted a dock then Shenmue could have gone on the list! We did want an urban area, but we decided to go for Jet Set Radio because it was a lot more stylised and it fit better with our game, to be honest.”
Digital Spy also has a new preview, which you can read here.
Finally, at the SSMB Sumo Digital’s Steve Lycett aka S0L, has confirmed the Sky Sanctuary Zone track we reported about on Thursday, making for a total of five tracks confirmed to be representing the Sonic franchise.
