Shinobi Joins Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed

New tracks too

Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed for 3DS — and, in all likelihood, Wii U — isn't just about boats, cars and planes. It's about ninjas and air pirates and axe-wielding dwarves, too.

SEGA's just confirmed that Shinobi legend Joe Musashi will be a playable character, following-up his appearance as a bonus character in last year's 3DS exclusive Shinobi. He joins SEGA legends Vyse from Skies of Arcadia Legends, Gilius Thunderhead from Golden Axe, Jet Set Radio's Beat and more.

SEGA and Sumo Digital also revealed two new tracks: Adder's Lair pulls the gruesome skeleton from Golden Axe's character select screen into a race track, while a level based on Jet Set Radio's Tokyo-to promises sunsets and near-misses with oncoming trains. These two join levels based on Panzer Dragoon, Sonic the Hedgehog and more.

It's sure to form a big part of SEGA's E3 offering so we're hoping for more screens, reveals and that all-important Wii U confirmation next week.
