Sega has announced details about Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for PS3 and PS Vita.

On the PS Blog, Sega of America Community Manager Kellie Parker revealed some new details about the characters, vehicles, and levels available in the game. First, the characters in Sonic & ASRT will be competing not just on land, but air and sea as well via vehicles that transform from cars to planes to boats. The racers each have their own unique transforming vehicles.

Characters available to choose from are veterans such as Sonic The Hedgehog, Knuckles, Dr. Eggman, AiAi and new racers such as Gilius Thunderhead (Golden Axe) and Vyse (from Dreamcast RPG Skies of Arcadia). Also joining the playable character list are Joe Mushashi (Shinobi) and Danica Patrick.

Patrick said the following about her inclusion in the game:

It’s a very exciting experience since I’ll be sharing the screen with such an iconic character. I cannot wait for gamers to jump into my customized, transformable vehicles and give Sonic a run for his rings this holiday season!

Three levels have been announced for the game thus far: Dragon Canyon (based on Panzer Dragoon), Temple Trouble (Super Monkey Ball), and Adder’s Lair (based on Golden Axe).
