Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing is finally set to speed its way onto the Mac platform, launching today in the U.S. for $24.99.
Perhaps "speed" is not the best way to describe the game’s Mac launch, though. This is the original Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing we’re talking about here, not Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed, which arrived on consoles and PC just last year. Even crazier is the fact that this game, along with Sega Superstars Tennis, was supposed to arrive on the Mac sometime last summer.
But no matter how long it has taken, the fact of the matter is that Sonic is finally making the journey to Mac, this being the first ever game starring the blue rodent appearing on the Mac platform. And, yes, Sega Superstars Tennis is still scheduled to arrive on Mac, though we’re not sure when, exactly.
In the Feral Interactive developed Sonic and All-Stars Racing for Mac, players can control Sonic and 21 of his best Sega pals in a karting game full of winding paths, wicked weapons and supped up All-Star moves. The tracks, too, are pulled directly from Sega games. And, like any good racing game, this Mac version of All-Stars Racing will feature splitscreen and online racing, as well as achievements and iCloud syncing.
“We’re thrilled to bring Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing to Mac with an enhanced online multiplayer experience,” said Managing Director David Stephen. “Game Center is potentially a great step forward for Mac gaming and Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing is the perfect game for it.”
