Sega has unveiled more of Team Sonic Racing‘s upcoming roster of racers, and one of them will likely give many fans extreme road rage.
During the recent celebration of Sonic’s 27th birthday at Tokyo Joypolis, Sega revealed Amy Rose, the Chaos, and Big the Cat will be joining the previously announced playable racers Sonic, Tails, Shadow, Knuckles, Omega, and Rouge. That’s right, the oft reviled Big the Cat will be hitting the racetrack. Check out the image below to see all of Team Rose.
While the boisterous purple feline has his defenders, a majority of players were happy to have him absent as a playable character in Sumo Digital’s last racing game, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Love him or hate him, he’s back and will be a Power-type character, while Rose will fall into the Speed category and the team of four Chaos will be Technique.
Unlike the two previous entries in the Sega all-stars series, Team Sonic Racing will only include characters from the blue hedgehog’s universe. There will be 15 racers available at launch, which means Sega has six more characters to unveil. With sometimes villainous characters like Shadow and Omega already confirmed, it’s likely fans will see others cut from the same cloth in the roster, such as Dr. Eggman or possibly Sonic Forces‘ Infinite.
Team Sonic Racing will launch later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
