January 30, 2018 - 6:20am
Shinobi 7 has announced plans to release Sonic the Hedgehog: Battle Racers, based on the Sonic the Hedgehog IP made popular in early 90s video games. The newest Sonic game has 2-5 players taking control on Sonic as well as both his friends and rivals in an obstacle-laden race. Sonic the Hedgehog: Battle Racers will include five 40mm scale pre-painted miniatures; Sonic, Knuckles, Amy, Tails, and Dr. Eggman. Battle Racers is scheduled to be available in retail in the second half of 2018. A modular course is built by players before the race. Once the race begins players will need to both avoid opposing racers as well as a litany of dangerous obstacles. Players will control their speed, deploy special abilities and unique powers all while trying to collect as many rings as possible. Shinobi 7 is already preparing for an expanded world, with expansion packs ready that will include one pre-painted character and their racer. Larger expansions will also include additional track sections for greater racing variety.
