Following on from Zappies claiming that a new Sonic racer was on the way, now a second toy maker has also hinted that a Sonic racer is in development.
At the New York Toy Fair, Diamond Select Toys have revealed their new line of Sonic toys, during an interview with Pixel Dan, when talking about the Sonic toys, the toy fair rep said the following.
“There are some minifigures […] some come with diorama pieces you’re going to build a race track from the game…“
Whilst it’s possible that this is in relation to ASRT or a past racer game, it seems very unlikely that this is for a previous racing title since they’re several years old now. The fact it mentions racetrack suggests that it is in vehicles so it’s unlikely that these would be Sonic R related products.
The Sonic section begins at 8:32 and the ‘from the game’ line starts at around 9:00.
So what do you think? The rumours are certainly starting to add up now aren’t they?
