    When Sonic Mania Plus released, fans got to also experience Sonic Mania Adventures, a special animation series created to promote the game. With the launch of Team Sonic Racing on the horizon, SEGA has decided to do something similar, in the form of Team Sonic Racing: Overdrive, a two part animation. Just like Sonic Mania Adventures, there will be no spoken dialogue, and Tyson Hesse will be doing the animation again. The first episode is currently viewable on Twitter. Team Sonic Racing will release later this year on May 21st.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    And Berserk 2016 laughs at you when you say, "ugly animation".

    Ah right. I almost forgot this game existed.

    Not really feeling this one like I was Mania Adventures. Don't think the "dialogue-less" gimmick works as well on Modern, either.

    Big the Cat is the MVP.

    Change my mind.

    I'm still upset they stripped out all the non-Sonic universe characters for this new racer. The previous two felt more like a celebration of Sega's complete history. Really going to miss Alex Kidd and Opa Opa.

    I didn't think the silent characters would work for a racing cartoon, but the jokes and expressions did a really good job of carrying out the whole thing. Like Sonic Mania Adventures, I do wish they'd expand this further. It's a bit of a shame that it's only two episodes. I wonder what jokes or references they'll put into the second one.

    Imagine if Team Sonic Racing has a bunch of lore and teases Sonic Mania 2 at the end.

    Yeah... not motivated to buy this game anyway, I mean I got a few previous games but never had much fub with them.

    I wonder if they will ever port Sonic R to the Switch?

    Interesting style, 3D animation made to look like Sonic X. This weird little animation had more character than all of Forces.
    Also, I need Chao back in my life, that after credits scene got me wanting more. Legit, why hasn't Sega made a Chao Garden for phones yet? ~shakes fist~

    Wish it was more than two parts, but I'm guessing that they want animation for their next Sonic game too.

    This game tries really hard for the Sonic Adventure 1&2 nostalgia, hence why there is no Cream the Rabbit and instead we got a kart run by Chao. Not to mention it has Big the Cat.

    It may add other characters as DLC later, who knows?

    Would be great if they took this series back to it's Sega Saturn roots and just let the characters run instead of racing in cars. They gave Robotnik his own egg-mobile in that game and it just all made sense. I can't find myself ever playing a Sonic racer with cars involved.

    If they give the cars different upgrades in these games, then they could just change it to give them better shoes or something instead. Just another Sonic IP with wasted potential in my eyes...

    GOTTA GO FAST!!! (in a car...)
