In 2012, SEGA and Sumo Digital released Sonic and Allstars Racing Transformed to critical acclaim. Fans adored the surprise sequel hit for its ambitious gameplay. Now, four years later, Xbox fans can get a taste of the hype as the game adds backwards compatibility to this system.
SONIC AND XBOX BEAT MARIO KART 7
Fans loved Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed when it came out. It’s a complex game featuring three different vehicle modes. Furthermore, they were actually unique. They weren’t just lazy attempts at variety like Mario Kart 7 (sorry, Nintendo fans). Furthermore, the game has more diverse tracks and racers compared to the original. Gamers could find this super sequel on just about every piece of modern hardware but now, the game will add a new console to its arsenal in the form of XBox One backwards compatibility.
XBOX ONE AND SONIC TOGETHER AT LAST
Sonic and Allstars Racing Transformed is available on the Xbox One according to Major Nelson. Now, fans are racing to pick up the game and see what the hypes all about. Sure, SEGA fan service isn’t the best but if the reviews hold any water, that won’t matter. The days of Mario Kart dominating their genre are over. Expert reviews continue to praise both console and handheld versions of the game. And this is just the beginning.
SONIC JUST THE BEGINNING FOR XBOX BACKWARDS COMPATABILITY
In addition to “All-Stars Racing Transformed,compatibility” Microsoft is releasing more games compatibility. Gamers can now enjoy Puzzle Quest Galactrix and PQ2 on their console. All games are available to purchase on the Marketplace. If you own the disc for the game, simply pop it into the console and start playing. With the popularity of “back compat” increasing, perhaps we will see many more games added to the list. Not only is it a good move for PR but customers sure love it.
