Mario may be the king of kar­trac­ing, but the blue hedge­hog has cer­tainly given the plumber a run for his money. With two well-re­ceived rac­ers in the last gen­er­a­tion fea­tur­ing Sonic and other beloved char­ac­ters across Sega’s IPS, Sumo Dig­i­tal is revving the en­gines again for a new racer that puts Sonic’s uni­verse at the fore­front. It’s also tak­ing a les­son from re­cent mul­ti­player trends by putting team­play at its core, which we’ve also seen in ar­cade rac­ers this year like On­rush and Trail­blaz­ers. Whether playing solo, split-screen or on­line with up to 12 play­ers, you’ll be in a team of three rac­ers, so team­work makes the dream work. Our re­cent hands-on may have only been in sin­gle-player, but even these races proved a chal­lenge against AI op­po­nents. You may com­fort­ably sail past ev­ery­one else and drift like a de­mon, but if you’re not do­ing any­thing to help your lag­ging team­mates it’s not go­ing to count for much.

Here, we break down the team tac­tics that are the recipe for suc­cess, the char­ac­ters you can ex­pect to con­trol be­hind the wheel as, and the modes that could sling­shot Team Sonic Rac­ing to the front of the pack.
