Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Bonus Edition Announced
SEGA has announced what was leaked on Amazon a few days ago, and that is Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Bonus Edition for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita for people who pre-order the game. What does this “Bonus Edition” offer that the regular release does not? Well, good thing that you asked!
The Bonus Edition of the thrilling new racing experience from SEGA will contain a brand-new track and character plus various collectable items and will be available as pre-order while supplies last.
The exclusive OutRun Bay track contains all the standard race modes found in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed™, plus challenges and time trials specific to the track. This time though, the whole race is transformed as you get to speed across the gorgeous shimmering blue ocean as well as the roads in a spectacular level inspired by SEGA’s classic arcade racer OutRun™. Sonic the Hedgehog’s popular rival Metal Sonic explodes on to the tracks in the exclusive Metal Sonic Mod Pack in the Bonus Edition of the game; this prototype levitation vehicle was crafted purely to race – and race it must! In addition to the track and character, an Emoticon Sticker Pack can also be found in the Bonus Edition. These collectables are found throughout the game and are given as rewards for skilful play, high scores and more.
Perhaps there are more bonus additions to be announced, but that’s just pure speculation on my end. As it stands, these additions are nice, but it all leaves a bit to be desired. Considering this is a pre-order bonus though, and not something that is more expensive than the standard retail edition, I suppose it’s not all bad.
To top things off, we have some official box art for the Bonus Editions as well! Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is due out for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PS Vita on November 20, 2012.
