Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing by Gameloft?!

Found this.

Quote:
It's a frantic battle to the checkered flag as Sonic and friends race
around high-speed tracks throughout the varied and visually stunning
SEGA universe. Burn through a lush rainforest, or hit frightening
speeds in the haunted mansion or casino as Sonic, Alex Kidd, Dr. Eggman
and many more fan favorites, each with their custom built cars, planes
and motorbikes. Collect power-ups and launch weapons at the competition
to stay ahead of the pack and steal the number one spot. Battle it out
in the ultimate All-Star racing showdown!

* 10 famous SEGA characters including Sonic, Knuckles, Dr. Eggman, Tails, Alex Kidd and more, each with their own unique vehicle & abilities
* 8 memorable tracks set in SEGA’s various game worlds like Sonic the Hedgehog™, Super Monkey Ball™, House of the Dead™, Jet Set Radio Future™, and many more!
* Collect rings to trigger the Mini-Boost for extra speed.
* Master drifts, slipstreams and stunts to be the fastest racer.
* Grab 6 varied weapons and power ups: K.O. Glove, Rocket, Ghost, Confusing Star, and Dash.
* 4 games modes: Race, Tournament, Time Trial, and Mission

Date release: ??

My personal opinion: if this is true, SSAR will most likely be available for iPod Touch and iPhone too, as Gameloft is very successful on that platform.

But I have concerns: while Gameloft is experienced with their Asphalt series, their kart racing game Shrek Kart wasn't really great in the matter of gameplay.

I'm taking a wild guess and saying this is not for the iPhone.

That looks like a straight-up game made for cell phones, not for the iPhone.

That's why I put a question mark behind the title. I'm not sure if this game really comes out for the iDevices. I asked Sumo Digital some weeks ago (they do the versions for PC, DS, Xbox, PS3 and Wii), but they remained silent about this one.
I'll get this game for Wii at the end of the month.
