Update: It would appear that despite being available to download for a number of hours and even the Playstation Blog staff confirming that it was up for sale, ASRT has been pulled from the Playstation Store. No idea why at this time, though a guess would be that it’s because the official release date is December 7th.
Original Story: You know whats really odd? With the exception of 4 screenshots and 3 seconds of footage from a random Nintendo conference. There has been no media at all released of ASRT on either the 3DS or Vita, it’s all been for the consoles. Yet here we are!
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is now available to download from the Playstation Vita store. This is currently only available in the EU and is priced at £34.99. There is no word yet as to if the content is locked until Friday December 7th when the games official release date is.
Also we should point out, it would seem that ASRT on the Vita is almost certain to be released this weekend in a physical form as SSMB user BlueTidalGamer reports his copy arrived this morning. Again, we point out that Sega have not actually announced this or released any information about the portable versions of the game.
If you are interested in knowing what the Vita version has to offer. I was able to get the following from it’s product page on the PSN.
- Ad Hoc Mode 2-8 Players
- Network Players 2-8
- Network Features
- 2048KB minimum
- Dual Analog Sticks
- Motion Sensor.
Sounds like the this is going to take advantage of almost all the Vita’s party tricks.
