What’s hedgehog-shaped, utterly heartless and absolutely terrifying? Metal Sonic dressed up like the Grim Reaper, of course. And boy, does he look more menacing than ever. This version of Sonic’s robotic doppelgänger is now available to unlock in SEGA Hardlight’s Sonic Forces mobile app, as part of the game’s ‘Grim Gala’ festivities.

So, with Apple Arcade launching today, we’re finally getting our first in-depth looks at both Sonic Racing and Chu Chu Rocket! Universe. With no official footage being released, we decided to record our own footage of these games.
It should be noted that both of these games are being recorded off of an iPhone 7, which could only achieve medium graphical quality for either game. This footage is not representative of how the games will look on more advanced hardware.
For Sonic Racing, I recorded the tutorial and a few races in the default vertical orientation, before later recording some footage horizontally. Check them out below:
I actually found it more difficult to play this game with the landscape orientation. Here’s hoping the Apple TV version has controller support:
For Chu Chu Rocket! Universe, I recorded the opening minutes of the game, including some bits of story mode, then recorded another puzzle separately to show off how arrows are selected (and because it was the first puzzle I had some trouble with).
You’ll find those recordings below:

The Sonic Forces Speed Battle ‘Rivals League’ event has finished, and there can only be one winner. Turns out, Team Sonic took the crown with 13,000 points over Team Rose’s 12,532. So close.

SEGA HARDlight will be revving their engines this weekend!
A team from the company behind the mobile app Sonic Dash will be taking part in the Twin Town Challenge 2018 using their Sonic Dash car, a refurbished 1999 BMW 528i.
The race sees 100 cars, comprised entirely from suped-up “bangers” purchased for £500 or less, drive from Oxfordshire in the UK to Le Touquet, France, all the way taking part in challenges.
All competitors raise money for SpecialEffect, a charity who specialise in developing gaming technologies for disabled children.
More details of the race can be found on the Twin Town Challenge website.
You can support the team by making a donation via their Just Giving donation link…and if you’d love to own the “Dash-mobile”, the car will be auctioned after the race with the proceeds also going to charity!
Check out the gallery below for some images of the car and the team before they set off on this wacky race!
Sega has officially announced Sonic Dash for all iOS devices and is coming “soon”. Hardlight Studios, the team behind Sonic Jump, is once again at the helm of this Sonic game (so expect micro transactions.)

Read on for Sega’s full press release. Continue reading Sega Officially Announces Sonic Dash for iOS
