Danica Patrick Hits The Track In Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed™
SEGA® of America Inc has announced a brand new partnership with Mattel, Inc and Hot Wheels® to offer consumers a unique cross-platform experience for the upcoming release of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. To sweeten the deal even more, NASCAR’s Danica Patrick will be a playable character in the new game.
Within Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, players can choose to race as Danica Patrick and drive a custom transforming electric green Hot Wheels® vehicle, designed to navigate the dynamic land, sea and air environments. In addition to its in-game presence, the “Danicar” will also be available as an exclusive diecast vehicle available this holiday season with purchase of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed at select retailers.
Marcella Churchill, Senior Director of Marketing, SEGA of America, said,
“Using Danica Patrick’s existing relationship with Mattel and Hot Wheels, we were able to extend our brand beyond the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed game universe and into consumer products with the creation of this custom toy. The Hot Wheels brand has a reputation for developing beloved childhood toys and our partnership will undoubtedly ignite this nostalgia amongst fans when they get to race this transforming vehicle within the game.”
Matt Petersen, Vice President of North America Boys and Games Marketing, Mattel, also commented,
“We are incredibly excited to link two iconic brands like Hot Wheels and SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog together for the first time. The new ‘Danicar’ is a unique vehicle that combines style elements from Danica Patrick and Sonic the Hedgehog with the outrageous design that Hot Wheels is known for – resulting in an in-game vehicle and diecast toy that all of our fans will love.”
