Get your first look at Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for the 3DS

The Australian street date has been broken for the 3DS version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and you know what that means: premature footage of the game in action!

Youtuber Dafstervideos has posted a substantial 16 minute video featuring three tracks from the game, including Ocean View, Galactic Parade, and Graffiti City, played as characters Sonic, NiGHTS and Ralph.

After watching the video in its entirety, I have to say I’m impressed with how well the HD console version has translated to the handheld. Certain visual perks look like they’ve suffered a bit–like the fact that NiGHTS’ All Star move is now just her airplane mode–but all in all it appears really faithful to what is generally a fantastic game.
