Back in May of this year, Sega unveiled their next big game; Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing. The game will involve Sonic and Sega characters, past and present, racing in magnificent courses set in each character’s world. In total, Sega has said that there will be more than 20 playable characters, including hidden characters. Sega has also just released a new trailer, emphasizing the inclusion of Nintendo 64 character legends Banjo-Kazooie and the inclusion of Avatars as playable characters. Due to bugs in Windows Live Writer, i cannot show the video but I can give you the link to it.
Some of you younger game players might not recognise Banjo-Kazooie but back in the days of the Nintendo 64 Banjo-Kazooie was one of the greatest platforming games ever made. Several other games have been introduced into the series including the sequel, Banjo-Tooie and recently Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts which was the first Banjo-Kazooie game to debut on the Xbox 360. In Sonic and Sega: All Stars Racing, Banjo and Kazooie will race in their custom built ‘Bolt Bucket’ racer against Sega characters. This will be the third game Banjo has raced in and the second for Kazooie.
Later on in the trailer, Sega also announce the inclusion of Avatars as players. These exclusive characters are only going to be available on the Xbox 360 version which comes out simultaneously with the other versions in March 2010.
