Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will soon be available at retail and with that in mind SEGA has started their TV advertising campaign in the US. The whole commercial feels like a brief episode of Wacky Races and SEGA is really pushing Danica Patrick’s presence, but oddly not Wreck-It-Ralph. You can view the commercial in the video above.
Thanks to NASCARFAN93100 on YouTube for the upload.
SEGA has officially unveiled Danica Patrick’s likeness in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed with the above new trailer and a few new screenshots. The publisher has also announced a partnership with toy company Mattel and Hot Wheels. Fans who buy a copy of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed at selected retailers (to be announced) will get a diecast hot wheels toy of Danica Patrick’s in-game “Danicar”.
SEGA has also announced that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed have been bumped up to a November 18th release in the US with the Wii U version. Yesterday’s reported delay of the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita versions to December 11th in the US has also been confirmed.
Screenshots and an image of the “Danicar” toy are available in our gallery after the jump.
