A Glaring Omission From Next Week’s Show
Sega today announced its lineup for the 2012 Eurogamer Expo that will kick off on Thursday in London. While Aliens: Colonial Marines, The Cave, and Hell Yeah! will be on display, we noticed a rather important game missing in Sega’s release–Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
There was no mention of the game, now less than two months away from release as Sega’s major Holiday title, being available for the public to play at the show. It’s likely the game could be seen to the press behind closed doors–or that we see ASR Transformed as a surprise–but given the game’s appearance at PAX Prime in Seattle just a couple weeks back, it is strange. Then again, between a showcase of framerate problems on the Wii U version, and Steve Lycett admitting framerate issues are behind the 3DS version’s continued shroud in secrecy, there haven’t exactly been votes of confidence in at least some versions of the game of late.
It could mean nothing, but we’ll see if ASR Transformed shows up elsewhere before launch, including New York Comic Con next month.
