I've been trying to post about this all day, but with one munchkin running around and another requiring a bottle regularly, sometimes hitting the updates in a timely fashion isn't exactly up to me. That said, some cool news came out of SEGA today about a partnership with Mattel, specifically the Hot Wheels Brand. When SONIC & ALL-STARS RACING TRANSFORMED hits the streets later this Fall, those who choose to race as Danica Patrick will do so in a special "transforming" Hot Wheels car that will take to land, sea, and air with ease. But that's not all - the "Danicar" is being produced as a genuine Hot Wheel as well.
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will be available November 18, 2012 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation3, and Nintendo’s Wii U. On December 11, 2012 it will be available on PlayStation Vita system and the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed races onto Windows PC via digital download this holiday season. The Hot Wheels "Danicar" will be available with the purchase of the game at select locations.
Check out the new trailer below:
Hot Wheels are a big fixture here at Rock Father HQ, where it's proven on a daily basis that they're not just for boys. My daughter LOVES her Hot Wheels, and seems a little car-obsessed in general. Actually, I just may have to snag a copy of this for XBOX 360...
