Using Kinect™ for Xbox 360®, Sonic Free Riders players will use their whole body to take full control of a variety of hoverboards and bikes as they turn, twist, jump and speed their way to the finish line. Players race as Sonic, Tails, Dr. Eggman and more, including the player’s own Avatar, through dazzling landscapes as they ride to victory.
Add even more excitement to each race with item pick-ups—reach out and grab a variety of rockets, bowling balls, traps and more to knock rivals off course. With customizable boards and bikes, unlockable gear, and upgrades to increase speed, skills, and special abilities, Sonic Free Riders offers enjoyable fun and racing excitement for all ages.
