Sega has announced a Sonic arcade racer called Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, which features cars, planes and boats.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is the sequel to 2010 arcade racer Sonic & All-Stars Racing, and adds a variety to new features, such as the ability to transform your car into a boat or even a plane for some of the aquatic or aerial sections of the racing track.

The game’s being developed by the team at Sumo Digital, which made the original Sonic & All-Stars Racing with guidance from former Bizzare Creations design manager Gareth Wilson.

The game will feature the usual set of racers, including Sonic, Dr Eggman, AiAi, Vyse from Skies of Arcadia and Gilius Thunderhead from Golden Axe.

It’ll see the return of powerful All-Star moves, which are awarded when you fill up your All-Star meter through “daring and stylish” play.

The game is due to release in “late” 2012 for Nintendo 3DS, PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Xbox 360. Check out the debut trailer below.
