We are excited to announce the release of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed now available on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and very soon for Android. Following on from 12 million mobile downloads of the original Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, this sequel includes all of the exciting, transforming vehicle gameplay and multiplayer battles found in the previously released console version. With a multitude of game modes, over 75 events and a brand new World Tour, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed has been specifically optimized for mobile and on-the-go gaming.

Sonic and his All-Star friends are breaking free from the traditional rules of the road with vehicles that transform mid-race and give you three unique ways to play. It’s a race to the finish line as you drive powerful cars, pilot agile planes and glide across raging rapids in high-speed aquatic vehicles. Choose from more than ten legendary racers such as Sonic The Hedgehog, Tails, AiAi, and for the first time in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Shenmue’s Ryo Hazuki and his incredible transforming arcade cabinet. You will need to master each character’s unique vehicles and game changing all-star moves to come out on top in 13 dynamically changing courses. Discover alternate routes and collect new power ups in a racing game experience that never feels the same twice.

When you feel that you’ve got what it takes, challenge your friends and race in four player local matches or in synchronous and asynchronous online multiplayer races. You’ll never need to feel like you’re racing alone with integrated Facebook and Game Center functionality that lets you see your friends’ profile pictures zoom past you on the track. Last but not least, if you want a new reason to play, iOS 7 & Android controller support transforms your racing experience into something different for mobile gaming.

Download Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed now for iOS, and very soon for Android!
