Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (ソニック&セガオールスターズレーシング Sonikku ando Sega Ōru-Sutāzu Rēshingu?) (known as Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing with Banjo-Kazooie on the Xbox 360) is a racing game, features Beat from the Jet Set Radio series and other Sega franchises. It released on several platforms, and it is the third game in the Sega All-Stars series. It was developed by Sumo Digital, just like the previous game.


The game plays out like a kart racing game, with characters collecting power-ups to boost their speed or hamper their opponents. Like Sumo's previous Sega game, Sega Superstars Tennis, each character has a "All-Star Move", (formerly "Superstar State"), unique to them, such as Sonic transforming into Super Sonic, that they can use against their opponents. The game has multiplayer options for up to four players on split-screen and eight players online.

Vehicles are separated into three different categories: car, bike and hovercraft. As the terrain on the tracks will vary, vehicles can be either assisted or hindered by the surfaces they drive upon. Cars vary in speed and weight, with some performing better on some terrains than others. Bikes have fast acceleration and can perform wheelies for a speed boost, but can be easily bullied by heavier vehicles. Hovercrafts are not affected by any terrain and are able to perform multiple boosts after a jump, but they have poor handling and have low acceleration. All of the vehicles also have their own specific engine sounds. Sega Miles that can be spent in the in-game shop to unlock additional content such as characters, tracks, art and songs.

Beat's in-game profile[]

Beat was a young "Rudie" who ran away from home to join one of the gangs of Tokyo-to. He impressed fellow "Rudies" Gum and Tab with his skating and graffiti skills in Shibuya bus station, and joined as a member of the gang, the GG's. Beat spends his time skating around fighting for turf with rival gangs by marking his territory with graffiti and eradicating other's tags. This attracts the attention of Police Captain Onishima and his S.W.A.T. team, who relentlessly pursue Beat and his friends. Beat drives a heavily customized street racer, with all the extras-including an extra bass system and neon under-lights!

    • Additionally Tokyo is referred to as "Tokyo-to", despite the tracks taking place in JSRF's universe.
  • When Beat uses his all star move he mentions DJ Professor K.
