Earlier in March, Sega announced an upcoming Sonic racing game is coming to consoles and PC, but little details were shared other than the usual announcement trailer.
Luckily, an insider working at Wal-Mart managed to leak the game’s description, Nintendo Switch box art and a number of the game’s main features. Players will team up with their friends and get to race as their favourite Sonic characters from the blue hedgehog’s universe.
