Move Over Mario Kart! Homebrew Sonic Team Racing Drifts Onto Sega Mega Drive

Sonic-Team-Racing-Sega-Mega-Drive-Homebrew-DemoFor countless years fans of the Super Nintendo have been enjoying the merits of Super Mario Kart, with Mega Drive owners having nothing nearly as good in comparison. As of today though a mode 7 racing equivalent known as Sonic Team Racing has drifted onto Sega’s 16-bit console.

Although incomplete, this incredible development comes straight from the homebrew mastermind of GASEGA68K - the same developer that ported Wolfenstein 3D to the Mega Drive, along with a technical demo of StarFox and F-Zero on Sega’s platform. Before you get too excited though, this is a very early work in progress of Sonic Team Racing which features just the blue hedgehog racing round a single track set in Green Hill Zone.

A playable version of this technical demo has been released online for all to play, either via emulation or on the original hardware through a flash cartridge. While it's unclear if the developer will be working on Sonic Team Racing further, it's worth noting that their port of Wolfenstein 3D saw continued development over a few years - so watch this space!
