Sega partners with studio in cross-video game deal.

Sega has teamed up with Walt Disney Animation Studios to get the star from its upcoming Wreck-It Ralph movie in a Sonic video game.

Ralph from Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph movie will appear in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed as a playable character.

The game will be available on PS3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U and PC this November.

Furthermore, some classic Sega game characters have been licensed to appear in the Wreck-It Ralph movie, such as Dr Eggman from the Sonic the Hedgehog game series.

“Wreck-It Ralph will make a great addition to our stellar cast in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed,” said Masanao Maeda, chairman and CCO for Sega of America. 

“Disney has created a unique film experience that will appeal to gamers of all ages, and our video game collaboration will give fans the opportunity to interact with their character on the small screen as well.”

Rich Moore, director of the animated feature film Wreck-It Ralph, added: “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.”
