Description

TSRTeamGameplay12

Shadow on the Wisp Circuit.

Wisp Circuit is a racing circuit set entirely on Planet Wisp. As such, the circuit's roads lead through the alien, yet scenic landscape the planet is renowned for, with its strange trees, luminescent insects, green grass, and rock formations.

The beginning of the circuit features grandstands filled with Chao and other diminutive creatures on the left side of the asphalted roads, which lead past standing rock formations and cliffs. This section features as well fences, balloons fashioned in the image of Sonic and Shadow's heads that float above, advertisement signs, blimps, and tent canopies. After getting past the grandstand section, the race course will lead through a forest area. Here, the roads are made out of giant hollowed-out tree trucks and tree bark. The nature is also more dense out here, with alien trees (both small and gigantic) everywhere and rock formations forming arching gates. Along the course, the player can also spot numerous Wisps on the sidelines.

Gameplay

Wisp Circuit remains fairly simple in terms of design. The only noteworthy gimmick is the grass at the beginning of the track which Technique-Type characters can drive on with no penalty, which they can utilize to cut corners. That aside, there are no other unique gimmicks or obstacles on this track.

Overview

WispCircuitMap

Map of the Wisp Circuit.

Shortly after taking off from the starting line, the road will make a U-turn and continue forward in the direction opposite to that of the starting line's initial direction. After going forward for a while, the road will then make a ninety degree turn to the right. From there, the road splits into three paths that wind between each other. The middle path is the fastest of the three and contains several boost pads and a loop, but features no Item Boxes. The side paths on the other hand are slower but contain Item Boxes.[2]

The three roads eventually meet up again onto a larger road, which will then make another U-turn. After that, the road will turn smoothly to the right behind making a sharp turn in the leftward direction. After then going straight forward for a while, the road will turn ninety degrees to the left before dropping off right before the finish line. Players can pull tricks off of this drop to build up a boost to give them an edge on the homestretch towards the finish line.

Trivia

  • This was the first track to be revealed for Team Sonic Racing, although the official name for it was confirmed after Ice Mountain.
  • The music for the track has a short segment in it that sounds similar to the original Planet Wisp theme.
