Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Cast Adds Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph

SEGA of America Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. have announced the title character of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming comedy movie, Wreck-It Ralph, will appear alongside Sonic the Hedgehog in the racing video game Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed cast as a playable character!

The racing adventure allows players to race through land, air and water in new dynamic tracks inspired by classic SEGA video games. Wreck-It Ralph’s unique transformable vehicles and signature All-Star move will make for some of the best racing around when he lines up against other All-Stars such as Sonic, AiAi and Danica Patrick, in both single player and multiplayer game modes.

You can see Wreck-It Ralph in the screenshot at the top of this page. Here’s the original trailer for the game.

And yes, you read that right, at E3 last month NASCAR driver Danica Patrick was announced as a playable character in the game! Unexpected yet fun! But it’s not that out of place because she’s in the NASCAR games.

“Wreck-It Ralph will make a great addition to our stellar cast in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed,” said Masanao Maeda, Chairman and Chief Content Officer, SEGA of America. “Disney has created a unique film experience that will appeal to gamers of all ages, and our video game collaboration will give fans the opportunity to interact with their character on the small screen as well.”

“To have Wreck-It Ralph included in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a dream come true,” said Rich Moore, director of the animated feature film Wreck-It Ralph. “The film pays homage to the video games I loved as a kid, including Sonic the Hedgehog in a special cameo, so being able to see Wreck-It Ralph in a real video game alongside Sonic and other iconic SEGA characters is unbelievably exciting for me and should be a treat for fans!”

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo’s Wii U, the Nintendo 3DS, and Windows PC Digital Download in Europe on November 16th and in America on November 20th, 2012.
