Sega is spreading around the Sonic love around and now the new recipient is the Mac. Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing is coming to Mac OS. The PC version has gotten a lot of praise, so lets hope the Mac version turns out as good. The game will be released on April 4th for $24.99.

From the press release:

    Feral Interactive today announced that Sonic & SEGA® All-Stars Racing™ for the Mac will be released on Thursday, April 4th, exclusively on the Mac App Store. Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing brings SEGA mascot Sonic the Hedgehog and 21 other favourite SEGA characters to the Mac platform for the very first time.

    Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing sees Sonic the Hedgehog, Dr. Eggman, Tails, AiAi the monkey and the rest of the cast race to the checkered flag in cars, motorbikes, planes, hover cars and even a “banana mobile”! Tracks inspired by SEGA’s celebrated game worlds, including Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Monkey Ball, range from medieval castle ramparts and lush rainforests to downtown Tokyo and even a gravity-defying casino!

    To stay ahead of the competition, players can use secret shortcuts, devious weapons and devastating power-ups liberally sprinkled along each track. Each character comes equipped with their own game-changing “All-Star Move” such as Sonic’s “Super Sonic” and Dr. Eggman’s “Missile Madness”.

    Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing will support online multiplayer for up to four players using Apple’s Game Center technology, as well as player achievements and iCloud syncing.
