Webber Dispels ASR Revival Rumors

Webber Dispels ASR Revival Rumors

by January 30, 2018 3 comments

This afternoon, Aaron Webber told fans via his personal Twitter account that any high hopes for a successor to the Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing franchised won’t be realized from a leak Monday night of upcoming projects from SUMO Digital.

The clarification came after a series of internal presentation slides from SUMO were leaked via the website ResetEra. One of those slides explained that an “unannounced karting game” featuring an “established global IP” was soon to come from the development house.

The last title in the ASR franchise, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, was released in 2012.

With that, the community’s eyes again will focus on the SXSW Sonic panel in Austin, Texas, for any official guidance. TSSZ’s Noah Copeland will be there, and our team will bring you live coverage of the panel on Friday, March 16th.

    That’s a real shame, Transformed was such a surprise pleasure for me.

    Wonder what IP they’ve picked up then? Is Crash Team Racing making a return?

    Unless the third game actually had GOOD characters like say Sketch Turner, Ristar, Honey/Sanman, and Segata and not crap like Boring War Generals or Random Nascar racer endorsment that no one cars about and then have all said characters only abe available to one version of the game, then I’d prefer they DIDN’T make a third game.

    I wonder if there’s any chance they were tapped for the Mario Kart mobile. I’m pretty sure thiat’s another DeNA headed project, part of the five deal, but that would be cool for them if it weren’t.
