Team Sonic Racing is off to a quick start in the UK - it's the first Sonic game to top the UK sales chart since Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games came out in 2008.

That's not all: according to our friends at GamesIndustry.biz, Team Sonic Racing's physical launch week sales more than doubled the launch week sales of its predecessor, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, which came out seven years ago.

It's a good result for publisher Sega, which is on something of a tear recently after the record-breaking launch of Total War: Three Kingdoms, and a positive sales story for UK developer Sumo Digital. (For more, check out our Team Sonic Racing review).

Sonic Mania

Paramount's much-maligned Sonic the Hedgehog movie project has been delayed by a little over three months, and will now release on 14th February, 2020.

The Sonic movie was originally scheduled to hit cinemas on 7th November this year - until, that is, fan ridicule reached fever-pitch following the release of the film's first trailer last month. There was already deep scepticism surrounding the art choices Paramount had made in reimagining Sonic for the big screen, beginning almost immediately with the very first character reveal. However, when the world finally got a proper look at movie Sonic in action, the entire cinematic endeavour was hit with a tidal wave of online disapproval.

Days after the trailer first landed on the internet, the Sonic movie's director, Jeff Fowler, took to Twitter, writing, "The message is loud and clear... you aren't happy with the design & you want changes." These changes would now be made, he pledged, insisting that, "Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be..."

If we ignore the wonky Sonic R, then Sonic The Hedgehog has had a pretty good track record as far as mascot kart-racers go. Team Sonic Racing is out today and the latest from Sumo Digital, formerly of the excellent Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. This time, they’ve narrowed their focus a bit, swapping transforming omni-vehicles for regular cars and focusing solely on Sonic and pals instead of the greater Sega universe. From what I’ve heard from folks who snagged the console version early, it’s still a grand time despite missing out on Football Manager racing around Skies Of Arcadia. Below, a launch trailer.

Team Sonic Racing™ is Now Available on Steam!

Team Sonic Racing combines the best elements of arcade and fast-paced competitive style racing as you face-off with friends in intense multiplayer racing.
Team Sonic Racing™

Here's hyperbole for you. Just as Sonic Mania saw a group of talented fans going wild with Sega's icon to create something as good as, if not better than the very best 2D Sonic games, then the enthusiasts at Sumo Digital have worked similar magic here. Not that it's saying particularly much, but this might well be the best 3D Sonic in a generation or two.

Maybe that shouldn't come as much of a surprise - not if you've been paying attention, anyway. Some seven years ago Sumo Digital made, in All-Stars Racing Transformed, an arcade racer worthy of the greats, helped in no small part by how it leaned on so many of Sega's legends. Panzer Dragoon! Skies of Arcadia! Burning Rangers! For players of a certain vintage, it was pure heaven.

Team Sonic Racing is a very different game led by a different team, with development primarily handled by Sumo's Nottingham studio, staffed in part by former Free Radical team members. For Sumo Digital's third kart racer for Sega, it sees the biggest departure from the formula yet. There are none of the rich, broad references to Sega's past - instead, this is a pure, dedicated Sonic game (a reverse trajectory to that of Mario Kart, funnily enough, which with the eighth instalment became a Nintendo all-stars series). Jet Set Radio's Beat is out, in other words, but Big the Cat is in.

Team Sonic Racing™

Each time I'm reminded Team Sonic Racing exists I get newly excited: it's a new kart racer by Sumo Digital (also responsible for the low-key amazing Sonic & All-Star Racing Transformed), and it looks smooth and colorful and cheerful. It'll no doubt prove a mandatory palate cleanser after the enduring trauma this has caused. The new trailer is embedded above.

It's yet to be seen whether Sumo can pull off the "team" aspect of the game: screwing with the kart racing formula is a very daring act indeed, but it sounds like teams will collaborate in order to accumulate a "Team Ultimate Boost", which I take to mean a short burst of going really heckin' fast. The objective is still the win the race, so that's promising.

Team Sonic Racing releases on May 21. It'll support 12 player online races as well as local splitscreen play.

Takashi Iizuka has confirmed the next main Sonic game has "begun production".

Talking at the SXSW Sonic panel this weekend (thanks, PCGN), Team Sonic were keen to temper expectations - apparently, we're unlikely to see anything concrete about the new instalment until next year - but said the team "will be excited to share more news with you in the future, but for now, thank you for your patience until we have something to show".

The panel also revealed an all-new trailer for upcoming Team Sonic Racing, scheduled to drop on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 21st May, 2019. The teaser offered a peek at the new customisation options - albeit ones that stop short at full character creation, sadly - as well as a little glimpse of the game in action. Players are able to tweak pretty much everything about their vehicle, from handling and defence to acceleration and paint finishes, and even the sound of your horn. Here, take a look:
