Sumo Digital’s exec producer Steve Lycett has confirmed that the characters for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will differ depending on which platform you purchase the game on. Lycett says that each platform will have specific characters that are unique to that system. Who would you like to see feature on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions?
The thing is, different people think of different things when you say ‘How many characters are in the game’.
Are we talking about playable choices, drivers, vehicle forms, which platform are we talking about, what?
Me, I go with actual playable choices on the character select. Over all the different platforms, this totals up to 29 actual playable choices. But that doesn’t mean that there are 29 playable choices in all platforms (in fact no single platform has all 29). Some drop down to the low 20′s, some instead have high 20′s.
Why is this? Well some platforms have characters that are unique to that platform. I’m not going to say which, that’s part of the fun of the reveals! Some are SEGA characters, some are not. Don’t bother asking :p
