A Race Against Time
Hello, Sonic fans!
It’s been too long since we have been able to bring you a meaningful update, and for this, we sincerely apologize. Today, we have both good news and bad news to pass along to everyone.
Let’s start with the bad news first…
Several weeks ago, our manufacturer in China informed us about possible delays. They explained that, recently, industry-wide changes have been implemented in China’s manufacturing industry, including new regulations, as well as factory closures. All of this has resulted in a production backlog at their plants. Over the last few weeks, we have been hoping against hope that the manufacturer could finish on time, and have tried our best to keep them on track to meet our promised October delivery date. And the manufacturer has been doing their best to accommodate our needs — but they just informed us yesterday that they will not be able to finish production until the end of this year.
We know this is a disappointment to you all; it’s a disappointment to us as well.
Our new target is to begin shipping just after the first of the new year.
We are deeply sorry if this delay causes an inconvenience to any of our backers. We are very close to the overall finish line and hope this delay will not impact your passion for Sonic the Hedgehog: Battle Racers.
And now on to the good news...
Throughout the entire post-campaign process, there has been a constant back-and-forth with the good folks at SEGA, who have worked tirelessly with us to bring you the best possible product. This means that every element of the game has been scrutinized, reviewed, and approved by SEGA’s Sonic team. During this process, we collectively came to the conclusion that the Super Sonic mini didn’t quite feel “super” enough… until now!
There’s a ton of work that goes on behind the scenes that would bore even the most diehard fan to hear about in detail, but we have also put finishing touches on the Rulebook, Profiles, and Tracks Sections. Much of this will look similar to what you have seen previously, however, there are a number of improvements and changes that have taken place since the campaign ended.
View the latest Rulebook (including Solo Mode Rules) HERE.
Below are the updated Racer & Boss Profiles as well as all Track Art:
We would like to thank everyone for your understanding and continued support throughout this entire process. We remain committed to bringing you all the very best Sonic the Hedgehog game we possibly can! The finish line has moved back ever so slightly, but we are in the final leg of the race at last!
P.S. For our next update, a couple weeks from now (or sooner), please stay tuned for photos of the miniature prototypes that are being made as we speak!
