Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed...!

Recommended Posts

Would releasing DLC for this game even be worthwhile at this point? The online community seems barren the last few times I played.

That's the annoying thing, they either don't do DLC on a game that screams for it. Or they leave it way too late and then wonder why it doesn't get purchased and then when the next game comes our use it as a reason why they don't do DLC cause it doesn't sell.

I have the game for pc and ps3. The problem as stated is a great game like this comes out with amazing stages and soundtrack. They hype of support for the game and a year later they do noting with it. Then when sells falter and they want to make a sequel they see no one is still around.

Posting it here since I doubt many people are checking the IOS thread...

I found the fact sheet for the game on the Sega Press Vault.

It has a few very interesting notes....

IGN

Then theres this...
 

Race as 10 legendary racers at launch each with their own unique transformable vehicle. Plus many more All-Stars coming soon!


The console versions all start with 10 racers (excluding Alex Kidd & Metal Sonic), Every other character is included in the game and is unlocked via 'stars' exceptions are the PC exclusives.

So... what are these 'many more all-stars?' The PC ones? Well... I would agree with that but... can you play any of the games in which the PC characters represent on the iOS/android systems? Maybe football manager but.. can't think of any others?

If the PC characters end up on the mobile devices... why not the consoles too?

As I said in the iOS thread, I don't know, but I can imagine they would follow their philosophy of characters that are on that platform, I dunno what iOS franchises they have, unless they put Jack Lumber? (Imagines Rufus Roughcut from Wacky Races)

Oh, look what it is...

 

A new entry for ASRT PC DLC!

 

note: the previous PC character releases were never listed as DLC, this is something different to another PC exclusive, probably. Wonder what it could be!...

wait a sec, there is a chance of this being the petition dlc, which means it could be coming to consoles, and that would be awesome

 

Go Vectorman!!

Only if you hate Miku

 

<3

hate, perhaps, a mild loathing after the DLC petition competition does exist though.

 

Now mind you, if it was a 5-6 character DLC pack including miku, and Vectorman I would be very happy(Nack would have me bouncing off walls, but that happening is well.... who knows)

Vectorman wasn't in the top 3, if I remember correctly. It was like some robot girl, some guy looking for sailors, and SEGATAN SANSHIRO.

at the end he said all above 1000 votes would be presented, so there are 7 or so possibilities(and  a sonic rep is likely)

1st Place - 3327 Votes - Ryo Hazuki
2nd Place - 3148 Votes - Hatsune Miku
3rd Place - 2581 Votes - Segata Sanshiro
4th Place - 1219 Votes - Vectorman
5th Place - 1206 Votes - Bayonetta
6th Place - 1074 Votes - Ristar
7th Place - 1006 Votes - Toejam & Earl

 

Get to it detective SSMB.

 

We can discount ToeJam & Earl for starters. Bayonetta is also unlikely due to the age rating.

Oh yeah and Fang/Nack won the S0L character pol, but he didn't come close on the one that got the song and a dance made about it.

He had less than a week, and we got over half the needed votes, and were second runner up, right behind Billy Hatcher, which means that if 2 of the top 7 were disqualified he had a chance

 

He would have made it with another day or two

Didn't Steve Lycett say we can forget Ristar too because of 3D model and vehicle design complications?

 

I hope it's Miku lol, I've been saying this since day one, so it's my fault Miku even became a thing, especially when wires got crossed with the Vocaloid fan sites thinking this was an official announcement on future DLC.

 

Same goes for Shenmue fans really.
