Normally gaming leaks ought to be taken with a pinch of salt, however once in a while the rumours stack up until they must be the truth – nonetheless, there are many instances the place the reality itself is much more ridiculous. On that notice, followers have uncovered the existence of Team Sonic Racing: 30th Anniversary Edition.

Team Sonic Racing is the newest SEGA kart racing recreation that launched in 2019, and whereas it’s a pretty fun Mario Kart-style racer for PC, most followers agree that Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing: Transformed is the superior recreation – it had a character based on Company of Heroes 2, for starters, and is certainly in want of a re-release.

Which is a part of the reason why the concept of a special edition re-release of Team Sonic Racing is so bizarre. As leaked by French retailer Sogamely (by way of TailsChannel), Team Sonic Racing: 30th Anniversary will reportedly be out on October 27 and presently solely has pages and field artwork to Switch and PS4 variations of the sport – however we assume it’ll be launched on all platforms, together with PC.

While the leak appears simple, if true, there are quite a few oddities to this reveal. Team Sonic Racing doesn’t want a re-release. There was no DLC launched so it could’t be a assortment, and it could’t be a next-gen re-release as the one two platforms leaked are Switch and PS4 – which the sport is already out there on. It’s doable SEGA is planning on including further content material, however there are far worthier Sonic games in need of more DLC.

While that is nonetheless solely a hearsay given SEGA hasn’t formally introduced it but, on condition that Sogamely isn’t the one retail website to leak the sport – each GreatGames and ReplayMultimedia listing it – and the bizarre addition of a free artbook, this hearsay appears a robust one. Even if we’re unsure who this 30th Anniversary Edition is for.

However, it’s the 30th Anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog, and whereas there aren’t any new video games out this 12 months Sonic has popped up in both Minecraft and Fall Guys recently – and the next proper Sonic game is out in 2022.
