Sega Europe has uploaded a new video of the upcoming Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed game showing off new characters, tracks & and battle arenas that you will see once the game hits the stores next month. You can see Curien Mansion makes an appearance yet again as a battle arena with a darker look as racers battle each other within the Doctor’s mansion inside and out. If you have an sharp eye, you can see posters of Zobio & Zobiko names on the wall. Speaking of which, will we see these lovely couple tear the tracks up again or sit out of this race?
UPDATE: Here’s at least 1 images from the Wii U version of Curien Mansion featuring Shinobi’s Joe Musashi.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed has finally been rated by ESRB with “Animated Blood” Looks like we’re getting some House of the Dead love. This could also mean that the “creatures” will go back in their original form unlike the previous game. Who’s up for a Goldman Building Track?
Thanks to Barry the Nomad for the tip.
