96w ago - Sega of America Community Manager Kellie Parker has officially announced today that Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is coming to the PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a thrilling new racing experience coming to PS3 and PS Vita, featuring Sonic the Hedgehog and a fantastic cast of SEGA All-Stars.

This iconic cast will be competing across land, air and water in vehicles that fully transform from cars, to planes to boats.

Following on from the huge success of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, the characters now have their own unique, transforming vehicles designed to take advantage of the varying terrain. 

The lineup on the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed grid sees SEGA favorites - including Sonic the Hedgehog, Dr. Eggman and AiAi - return to battle against newcomers, including Gilius Thunderhead of Golden Axe and Vyse of Skies of Arcadia.

Many attendees got to play the game for the first time at E3, and chose from one of three available levels: Dragon Canyon (based on Panzer Dragoon), Temple Trouble (based on Super Monkey Ball), and Adder's Lair (based on Golden Axe). In addition to this new track, we also announced that Joe Mushashi from Shinobi will be a playable character in the game.

Fuel Overdose - Tactical Action Racing is Coming to PSN

112w ago - I-Friqiya Executive Producer Skander Djerbi has announced today that tactical action racing title Fuel Overdose is coming to PSN with details below.

To quote: My name is Skander Djerbi, I'm a member of I-Friqiya, a tiny indie team located in Tokyo and in charge of Fuel Overdose.

In our team there is Ryo our graphic designer, Jerome our game designer/level designer/programmer, Hideyuki our character designer while Aroun and I are the producers of the game.

To cut a long story short, we used to work for big publishers and we decided to venture into indie game development in 2010 because we thought we could bring something new to the table; what we are bringing you is Fuel Overdose.

Our ambition with this game is to bring back retro, top-down combat racing, but with a twist; that's why we like to think of our project as a "Tactical Action-Racing" game.

Action

We are not inventing the combat racing genre - we played most of them on consoles and PC over the past 15-20 years, and it appeared very quickly during our first meetings that there was no point trying to develop a remake of these games.

But we also realized that there were some essential...
 

Video: WipEout 2048 Brings Birth of Anti-grav Racing to PS Vita

50°
140w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a video interview today discussing how the upcoming WipEout 2048 game brings fans the birth of anti-gravity racing to PS Vita.

To quote: The WipEout series is synonymous with PlayStation hardware launches and so there's a warm feeling of familiarity to knowing that WipEout 2048 is coming to PlayStation Vita during the launch window.

The game focuses on the birth of Anti-grav racing and the Liverpool Studio team is keen to focus on how the architecture of the futuristic city shapes both look and gameplay. I caught up with Graeme Ankers and Stuart Tilley out in the sunshine between presentations.

It's fantastic to see a new WipEout game on its way, particularly one that is looking to take the series in a new direction. We already know that it will support cross platform play allowing Vita and PS3 players to go head-to-head online and I've just learned that the soundtrack - a vital ingredient in the WipEout DNA - features new remixes of Underworld and Leftfield tracks from the original game, as well as a new track from Deadmau5. Can't wait!




 

Video: Monochrome Racing Arrives to PlayStation Minis Tomorrow

50°
142w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has shared a video trailer and confirmed that Monochrome Racing will be speeding into PlayStation Minis tomorrow.

To quote: I'd like to talk about Monochrome Racing - a minis game that we are releasing on the 3rd of August.

Monochrome Racing is a unique racing game that takes place in a black and white world. And since the world is black and white, colour becomes the scarce resource that players compete for.

You start the race with your car completely charged; it is bright and full of colour. As you drive, the colour gradually vanishes away and in order to recharge the car, you need to drive over the coloured checkpoints. If you car turns monochrome it is knocked out. The goal of each level is to finish first and earn as much money as you can.

There are several types of power-ups randomly spread across the level. Once taken, they can increase your car's characteristics (speed for example), or can damage your opponents with bombs that leave a huge wave behind them. There is a garage where you can spend your money.

To get a better idea of what is going on in Monochrome Racing, please have a look at the game video:
