Sega Announces Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity

Sonic is coming back for another crack at mascot racing stardom in a sequel to Sonic Riders, subtitled Zero Gravity. Sonic Team back at the helm, Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity is being developed for a February 2008 release on the PS2 and Wii and will feature two unique new gravity controlling maneuvers, innovative new tracks, new playable characters and even faster speeds — no specifics on the Wiimote functionality as of yet. As long as the courses and controls are a little more forgiving than the original, this game should be a treat.

“Speed and agility is what built the Sonic franchise,” said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA® of America, Inc. “Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity offers long-time Sonic fans, and newcomers alike, the adrenaline-pumping gameplay and moves that made the blue hedgehog famous, while adding a plethora of completely new elements to the Sonic world. Packed with new and innovative features, Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity delivers a rush that gamers can’t resist.”
