Retro user and SHC Judge Spanner is relaying the message that this year’s Sonic Hacking Contest is now accepting entries for hacks and mods. In addition entrants are encouraged to submit their own footage for this year’s trailer and encourages submissions of workshops. Details can found in this forum post, on the SSRG forums or below the jump.
The contest week is set for Monday through Sunday, 26th of November to the 2nd of December. To learn more about the rules and trophy guidelines you can check out the contest’s new website by visiting sonichacking.org.
Also there are some new screenshots for this and Shattered Crystal and some concept art that reveals that Metal Sonic and Shadow are in this game with their designs unchanged. So there’s your fanservice. SEGA also confirmed that both games will come out in Europe on November 21st.
So with all of these new Sonic Lost World previews and videos popping up today, it’s probably best to make a post rounding them all up rather than dropping them all into Monday Links. Besides the new spoilerific trailer above, here are all of the other new things:
- The game has been delayed to October 29th, it appears that the release date is still the same for Europe though
- Gametrailers: Opening cutscene and walkthrough of Windy Hill Zone 3

With Sonic Lost World only being a month away from release, Sega has begun pretty much showing anything in their trailers. So only watch the trailer above if you don’t mind spoilers, same counts for this trailer showing all of the bosses we forgot to report on last week.
If yesterday’s new Sonic Lost World trailer wasn’t enough new Sonic goodness for this week, than we have just the thing to satisfy your needs!
Wait crap you probably didn’t want this and I got it all over the front page sorry I’ll clean it right up.
With just a little over a week until the Wii U version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will be sold in stores in the US, a launch trailer for this edition has been put out showcasing various things you can do on the fancy new Wii U that you can’t do on any of those other consoles. Footage of courses based on NiGHTS Into Dreams, Billy Hatcher and Jet Set Radio are also shown.
Besides this there’s also more news on this game from the past few week we
were too lazy to report on forgot to make front page posts about. Trailers showing Wreck-It Ralph and Danica Patrick in the game were released, the 3DS and PSVita versions have been delayed until December and the PC version will be released sometime after the console versions as well. The achievements were unveiled and we got about half an hour of gameplay footage here. I think that’s about it. If you live in Europe you’ll have to wait until November 30th if you want to get the Wii U version but the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will be released just one week from now on November 16th. If you live in the US these versions will be released a few days later on November 20th, except for Wii U which will come out on November 18th.
With the release of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed being a month and a half away, SEGA has started showing some new stuff for the game. First of they’ve released a new trailer (seen above) which showcases the world tour mode, challenges, online and local multiplayer and the battle mode. A The House of the Dead battle arena can be seen as well in the trailer. SEGA also released a bunch of new screenshots which confirm that Ulala from Space Channel 5 will be back in this game as well and they’ve shown what Danica Patrick and her vehicle look like in the game. All of these screens can be seen below.
Besides all of this stuff, SEGA just started a website for Transformed. Besides there being a neat animation of Sonic’s vehicle transforming, one of the backgrounds shows that Sky Sanctuary from Sonic & Knuckles will be one of the courses. You can also look at a bunch of old trailers and screenshots there if you want to.
From Comic Con comes a new trailer for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed showing at least part of the opening cinematic of the game. The trailer primarily features Sonic characters along with a bunch of recycled voice clips, though Vyse from Skies of Arcadia, Gillius from Golden Axe and AiAi from Super Monkey Ball do appear as well as some of the dragons from Panzer Dragoon. The end of the trailer shows the release date of the game, which is November 20th, 2012 in the US and November 16th in Europe.
The box art of the game has also been revealed. Non-Sonic SEGA characters take a backseat on this cover, with Sonic literally appearing five times to show how his vehicle transforms from a boat into a plane into a car. If you squint you might be able to see AiAi flying around in the background. Aside from the lack of other SEGA characters it’s not a bad cover though. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will be coming to Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation Vita, 3DS, Wii U and on PC download services like Steam.

If you played Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, you may remember the dream events. If you didn’t, they were basically the normal Olympic events mixed up and put in stages from various Mario and Sonic games. For example, there was one where you snowboard through Radical Highway. These events return in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, with events taking place in Sonic levels like Windy Valley or BINGO Highway and levels themed after Mario games like Super Mario Galaxy. You can see them in action in the new trailer below:
The game is out now for Wii and a 3DS version will be released early next year.
