The panel was mostly about the upcoming Sonic kart racing game Team Sonic Racing, which is due out this May, but to close the panel Iizuka wanted to share some information with the fans about the status of the next mainline Sonic game.

With unique character types, game modes, and auto customization options, Team Sonic Racing blends the best elements of racing games. Here's the first episode of Team Sonic Racing Overdrive. However, it's extremely unlikely the as yet untitled game will be releasing this year. Either way, it sounds like it's a long way off.

Developed by award-winning studio Sumo Digital, Team Sonic Racing is the ultimate arcade and fast-paced competitive style racing experience, featuring your favorite characters and environments from across the Sonic Universe. The series will be directed by Tyson Hesse and Neko Productions, who produced the well-received Sonic Mania Adventures web series. By earning in-game credits, players can venture to the garage to unlock parts for the front of their auto, the rear or the wheels, allowing for alterations to the vehicle's performance and handling. Following a period filled with nothing but new music, a new trailer, put up today following the Sonic the Hedgehog panel at SXSW 2019, finally features some brand new gameplay footage.
