Sega shows off new gameplay footage for Team Sonic Racing

We’re kinda itching for a new kart racer these days, so a brand new Sega-infused experience sounds good enough.

Team Sonic Racing focuses primarily on Sonic and friends (as opposed to the diverse cast of Sega’s Sonic & All-Stars Racing), so today’s new video shows off the team-based racing twist to the gameplay as you can see below.  The new trailer also gives a glimpse of Team Rose and the new Ice Mountain course.

Sega has been a bit stingy with new media for the game, so make sure to check it out.

Team Sonic Racing races to the Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One this winter.
