SEGA isn’t letting SackBoy be the only one the asphalt with the announcement of Sonic All Stars Racing: Transformed Bonus Edition.
While the title may be quite a mouthful, this latest update to Sonic All Stars Racing includes 29 playable characters from the Sonic, Samba de Amigo, Nights and other series just to name a few. The Bonus Edition for Transformed offers racers an additional unannounced character as well as rival battles with Sonic’s nemesis Metal Sonic.

Sega provided the following description:
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.
Sonic All Stars Racing: Transformed will be released on November 20th 2012 for Xbox 360, PS Vita and PlayStation 3
