SEGA brought in a few surprises to SXSW’s Gaming section this weekend as they showed off new materials for Team Sonic Racing. The reveal came during their annual “Gotta Go Fast: The Official Sonic the Hedgehog,” panel, featuring Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka, Sr. Community Manager Aaron Webber, Director of Product Development Austin Keys, Sonic Series Composer Jun Senoue, and TV Animation Production Coordinator Jasmin Hernandez. During that time we got to see new screenshots of the racers in action going around some of the courses, as well as a much more in-depth look at the way you can customize cars from performance parts to cosmetics and how they can affect your vehicles in the game. Not to mention a little b-roll footage of some racing action, but without the sound.
The crew also revealed the first episode of their animated shorts centered around the game with Team Sonic Racing Overdrive. You can check out part one below, along with a video on how to go about customizing your vehicle in Team Sonic Racing.
