It’s a new version of last year’s game with playable characters Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel and an Encore mode that provides a fresh look at familiar zones with new challenges and layouts. Competition and Time Attack modes have also been updated for four player competitions, and ghost challenges for time trials.
