Sega describes the short:
Team Sonic, Team Rose, and Team Dark face off at Wisp Circuit in this first of two parts of a special animation based on Team Sonic Racing! As usual, the diabolical Dr. Eggman seems to have his own plans – can the teams overcome his tricks, or will they find themselves more than a little distracted?
Tyson Hesse directed the short at, Neko Productions, and Yukio Kusumoto served as producer. Sega will release part 2 of the short in April 2019.
Sega will release the Team Sonic Racing game on May 21 after a delay from this winter. The company will release the game physically and digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, with a digital-only release on PC. The game is a kart racing game featuring characters from the franchise that will feature both online multiplayer and single player modes. The game will also feature team vs. team gameplay.
