SEGA have announced that the title character of Walt Disney Animation Studiosâ€™ upcoming comedy, Wreck-It Ralph, will appear alongside Sonic the Hedgehog in the upcoming racing game Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Wreck-It Ralph (the trailer for which you can see here) is a new animated film about a washed-up videogame character in search of redemption, and includes cameos from all sorts of real videogame characters.
â€śWreck-It Ralph will make a great addition to our stellar cast in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed,â€ť said Masanao Maeda, Chairman and Chief Content Officer, SEGA of America. â€śDisney has created a unique film experience that will appeal to gamers of all ages, and our video game collaboration will give fans the opportunity to interact with their character on the small screen as well.â€ť
â€śTo have Wreck-It Ralph included in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a dream come true,â€ť said Rich Moore, director of the animated feature film Wreck-It Ralph. â€śThe film pays homage to the video games I loved as a kid, including Sonic the Hedgehog in a special cameo, so being able to see Wreck-It Ralph in a real video game alongside Sonic and other iconic SEGA characters is unbelievably exciting for me and should be a treat for fans!â€ť
