Danica Patrick Playable in ASR Transformed Demo at NYCC 2012

Panzer Dragoon, Seaside Hill on Display

Only a couple days after Sega formally unveiled Danica Patrick’s likeness and vehicle variants in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, her virtual self was playable on the floor of New York Comic Con today.

I played as her and experienced all three gameplay variants in the Panzer Dragoon stage on XBOX 360.  There’s no video to show, but as a first impression, the game does look brighter and more vibrant on screen, and transition between air, land, and sea were seamless. I also saw a bit of Ralph, the game’s second major tie-in, while on the track.  His model looked good, but at least today, I didn’t have a chance to play as him.

Elsewhere, Sonic was available to play on the Seaside Hill track on the Playstation 3.

Aaron Webber was manning the ASR Transformed booth but I unfortunately got little out of him in terms of a Q&A today.  I hope to bring you more from anyone willing to talk about the game and its features as New York Comic Con 2012 rolls on.
