I'd love it if Kid Chameleon made it in, nobody I knew thought so too but I thought the original one was a pretty competent and fun kart racer.
They've dropped Sega from the title; the full name is "Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed". For those wanting more Sega characters than Sonic characters, I'd say that's not a good sign, although it could be just a marketing stunt.
Also, there's a trailer:
Hmmm, Sonic is the fastest and coolest creature in the world, so lets once again stick him in a car and try to pretend this isn't a Mario Kart clone and let's bring his 9,000,000,000 sodding friends too and lets attach additional Sega characters to further witness the whoring of this once proud company.
you have Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, Amy, and Robotnik on the Sonic side
then you have Vectorman, BD Joe, Beat, Ristar, Gillius Thunderhead, Vyse, and Vectorman from the sega side
also, only 1 sonic stage in the game according to the interview, and every character has their own stage. And the 2 stages shown off were the village Lagi saw get destroyed by the Shelcoof from Panzer Dragoon Zwei, and a generic track from super monkey ball. Which people assume mean that Orta or Lagi are in the game, and that AiAi is definitely in (considering he was in the first game).
Interviews with Digital Sumo shows that Sonic & Sega All-stars was original just sonic kart, and that DS decided late into development to shift it over from just being a sonic-themed kart game, to being a sega-themed kart game. I'd say we're going to get a lot more Sega this time.
A retarded Sonic.
I laugh at people suggesting Kid Chameleon, he's about as notable as the main character in Jewel Master. Zero percent chance that he is a playable character.
bitching about Sega fanservice in a fan service game - check
bitching about a lack of game-destroying unfair advantages like taking sonic out of a car and letting him run ten times faster than anyone else - check
calling sega a whore - check
what a by the books worthless "olol sega" post. Please add content to your useless bitching next time.
A retarded Sonic.

Sega-16 Beat 'em All Genesis 2013 Progress
i've only played the demo of the first game and I enjoyed it. my only gripe is I hope the cheesy announcer voice can be turned off during the race this time in the options menu.
I'm quite excited for this. I had no faith in the first game but ended up pleasantly surprised. It played really well (more like OutRun 2 than Mario Kart in feel; and people always forget that Sega did kart racing in some form pre-Mario Kart with Power Drift anyway), they fixed the ugly Alex Kidd model from the tennis game, and I loved the smoothly animated Opa Opa. The character line up did favour new-school Sega but I figured sequels would add more classic ones anyway. Plus, if you looked at the achievements, there were plenty of obscure Sega references so the developer does remember them.
