it gives you a small sample of what this new racer is capable of. No longer
just limited to the ground, but sea and air. With a new set of racers ready to
take on all sorts of crazy SEGA themed worlds. Plus a bevy of surprises. So

Rev It Up! (bgm)
Sometime ago, a certain videogame OST changed the way we heard music
altogether. Jet Set Radio paved the way for unique ideas. Giving the player a
fun experience where the music came to life, and literally become a live DJ. As
soon as a certain Sonic community website heard that fans could add some input
in regards to this next racer.. we took on it in a heartbeat. With a ton of
classic tracks, there was only one to take it another awesome level, let’s mix
it up! No longer just a one set bgm tune, every stage’s theme actually shifts
into different themes, so each has its own distinct sound. Making Transformed a
whole new experience every time you play!
Get In Gear! (tracks)
Each track takes place in a Sega themed game. But these tracks aren’t your
normal race tracks from the last game. Now even the levels transform! Depending
on how much area you cover, the level will literally shift into a different
perspective, altering the entire track. Even your vehicle has its own
personality. And the more you race, even the car begins to evolve! (Plus for those who joined us back In the
SNES days, each track shifts into a F-Zero design, from insane curves to flying
high in the sky. ) Every level has its difficulties, from easy, normal and
hard. (even the levels get tougher, so its not just the competition anymore,
but the in-game world!)
Tagging the Road (characters)
From the start you are given a choice between 10 characters. The rest of the
cast is unlockable via the new World Tour mode. The more you play, the more you
unlock. For a total of 24 characters! (and who knows who else might show up!)
XP (Got Rings?)
For those in our audience who aren’t role playing efficient. This term means
experience points, giving your vehicle more abilities. From better boost,
power, handling, and tons of capabilities (in all forms from flight, driving,
and over water). As you progress, your character and vehicle “level up” with
the points you’ve obtained from beating challenges or races. And when you bring
in friends, it gets even more intense (even your opponents characters will
benefit from taking track position, and winning!
There are many levels to upgrade, so just try every mode with any character to
learn which suits your playing style.
Stars – (Hey Ristar buddy!)
These unique elements are collected by winning races. Although they aren’t
trophies, collecting a various amount of them will give players access to a
bundle of new content via World Tour mode. From races; challenges, new
characters to unlock. But wait it’s not that simple, given certain difficulty
levels, from easy to hard. If you play the tougher modes, the more stars you
obtain. But be warned, some of the tracks and challenges are pretty tough!
