Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph Appearing in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
I’m pretty excited about Disney’s forthcoming movie based on video game classics, Wreck-It Ralph, which stars a John C. Reiley-voiced Donkey Kong analogue who hops from game to game to find his new calling. So it’s kind of interesting how news broke today that Ralph himself would be appearing in Sega’s Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, which will also feature Danica Patrick as a racer, because of course it does.
The director of the movie, Rich Moore, was pretty jazzed about Ralph’s inclusion in the game:
“To have Wreck-It Ralph included in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a dream come true. The film pays homage to the video games I loved as a kid, including Sonic the Hedgehog in a special cameo, so being able to see Wreck-It Ralph in a real video game alongside Sonic and other iconic SEGA characters is unbelievably exciting for me and should be a treat for fans!”
The game is set to be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and Windows PC in November…which should coincide with the release of the movie in theaters as well. While I really don’t care much about this game (a Mario Kart clone with Sega characters), I do like the bit of synergy. Maybe they’ll work this game into the movie! It’d be kind of neat to imagine that playing as Ralph is kind of like playing a scene from the film…
