In celebration of Sonic the Hedgehog's birthday, SEGA has revealed three new racers for the upcoming title, Team Sonic Racing, during a live stream event in Tokyo. 

These characters include Big the Cat, four Chao in one vehicle and Sonic's love interest, Amy Rose. Amy's reveal might not be much of a surprise, but it's certainly nice to see the return of Big and the adorable Chao. The previously revealed racers include Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, E-123 Omega and Rouge the Bat. Nine of the 15 characters have now been revealed.  

Are you glad these three characters are in the game? Are you still hoping certain others make the cut? Tell us in the comments.
