Different Items…Maybe a Different Roster?
This week, Japanese gamers learned that Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will head to their country, fully localized and ready for races on Playstation 3 and Wii U in a couple months. But our reporter Andrea Gil, currently away, did find some time to look at the trailer and corresponding website, and noticed some key differences–some very distinct, others potentially in the air:
First, if you take a look at the Japanese site , there is only one VIP character in the list shown there. And that is Ralph, so Danica is out.
Also in the trailer you can see a Chao replacing the baseball glove item, and additional images have shown a Puyo is replacing the puff fish.
We’ve relayed the trailer in Japanese for you below, and you should see at least a few of those differences reflected. We’ll check and see what the status of Danica Patrick is for the JP version, but any number of factors could result in her likeness being cut, or even retained.
