Sega announced an unusual addition to the roster for Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed. The titular character from upcoming animated film Wreck-It Ralph will be playable in the kart racer.

Ralph, like other characters, has a vehicle that transforms in the middle of races. In its land form, it looks like a tow truck. When racing on water or in the air, it becomes a fan boat or helicopter.

Most of the game's cast is made up of characters from the Sonic series or other Sega properties. Ralph does feel a bit out of place there. However, Danica Patrick's inclusion makes him merely the second most ill-fitting character.

Ultimately, though, this is a kart racing game. The normal rules of game design don't apply. There's no place for things like story or thematic unity.
