Start your engines, Amazon Luna subscribers, because Team Sonic Racing has joined the platform.
Those who are a part of the early access phase of the streaming platform can now play Sega’s latest kart racer. This entry took quite the detour from Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing as it wholly features the Sonic the Hedgehog universe rather than a crossover. Team Sonic Racing, despite missing the likes of Aiai and Amigo, has 15 playable characters that are categorized into three types: Speed, Technique, and Power.
While yes, it looks very similar to the Mario Kart series, this game has a focus on teamwork rather than downright betrayal among friends (looking at you, blue shells). By following your teammates, you can boost each other and gain the upper hand. In addition, you can pass along items among the squad.
Team Sonic Racing is a drive down memory lane, as well. Popular soundtracks and vistas from prior games like Sonic Heroes and Sonic Colors are referenced within the title. The racing spinoff has multiple modes on offer, including a story mode, online multiplayer, Grand Prix, Exhibition, and Time Trials. You can read our review of the game if you need more information on the title.
You can now play it on Fire TV, PC, Mac, web browsers, iOS, and Android devices. Unfortunately, the service is only available to play in the United States (except Hawaii, Alaska, and other U.S. territories) so if you’re not in Uncle Sam’s radius, you’re out of luck.
Amazon Luna is a streaming service that costs $5.99 a month for standard access and $14.99 if you choose to subscribe to Ubisoft+. The latter option includes big triple-A titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The future of Amazon Luna already seems unclear, despite its potential, as the company’s boss resigned five months after the service’s debut. That’s not a good sign. However, it might have a bit of an edge over Stadia – if Luna can ever find its footing.
You can experience Team Sonic Racing on the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and now Amazon Luna.
