Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed...!

Recommended Posts

I second this, and this would be awesome!

 

Admittedly it would be a rather clever time to release it, as both a reminder, and a gift for loyal players. and also to show all our efforts do mean something, and that they do remember other classic character

 

I wonder when it'd be released if it's announced next week... Maybe around Chrimbo.

 

Oh man, I want to get excited, but after 3 PC exclusive DLCs in a row... I don't want any more dissapointment sad.png

 

I'm pretty sure even Sumo/SEGA know that adding popular characters as DLC on only the PC isn't going to gain them any fans. Plus there was a fair bit of uproar over the PC exclusives.

To be honest if we are getting new racers, making them PC only again if said characters are of console origin would be a giant fuck you from both SEGA and Sumo, especially if Miku comes to fruition.

 

I doubt Miku is going to be one of them anyway, it'd be Sony exclusive only if anything since none of Miku's games have landed on Nintendo or Microsoft home consoles.

 

Sigh, can I just believe, because Miku would be an awesome racer...

Well, if we thinking like that... NiGHTS was never in a Sony console untill All-Stars, but it was already on Nintendo. But then again, NiGHTS wasn't exclusive to anyone (except SEGA, but lol Dreamcast).

I still think it would have been awesome to have a Sonic Drift or Sonic R track, complete with the blocky or pixel graphics. And cheesy happy music. People do seem to eat up the retro these days. Would have been a nice nod.

If he's not gunna be in the game a Sonic Drift track would be a great place to at least cameo Nack too :D

I would be actually surprised if S0L actually found a way on fitting Ristar. I kinda think an ATV (similar to Knuckle's) could work.. especially the size of it.

 

Anyways, I think we're only getting one of the seven characters into the game. Nack is an exception because he was only in terms of a "Sonic" Poll for the sake of testing it. Greendog & Tim Henman could become a reality (Keep in mind that we never would expect characters like ChuChus, or even the Bonanza Bros to be playables before), I don't think Bayonetta would make an appearance, and could be someone else.

 

But then again, I could be wrong and just making a thought from this. Maybe there could be a big update on some changes to it.

Honestly, at this point aside from Miku Hatsune (that i still dredd) and probably 1 or 2 famous Sonic characters like Silver or Blaze, the only DLC characters that have some potential are veterans like Billy Hatcher or Ryo Hazuki.

Granted, i would like something creative like a W40K Space Marine couple riding a Predator for earth, a Rhino for water and a Land Speeder for air, but at this point it's an utopistic idea.

If those are hints then it seems like Miku is a possibility... And the code was found on Steam. So that wouldn't be PS3 exclusive if that was the case. I don't see why she wouldn't be available on all platforms on this instance, she isn't owned by Sony.

Untrue. The SEGA Superstars series (original and tennis) were on Sony consoles before All-Stars came about, the former being exclusive to PS2 and predating Journey of Dreams by over 3 years. The Japan-exclusive PS2 port of the original came out just after JoD was released, as well.

Just change the text to Xbawx then. :D

Nobody thought Kingdom Hearts could have been on a Microsoft console, yet KH III is coming on Xbox One.

Console-exclusive series are becoming more and more rare this days, so who knows?

 

Also, Valkyria Chronicles characters on Project X Zone wich is on 3DS :v

Except there's the Project Mirai series for the 3DS.

Yes they said that tracks are not likely, which should be the main reason to think we won't be getting them. But what I find funny is people saying they take months to make so there's no way we would get them. Umm..hasn't it been almost a year since release? That's 12 months. Plenty to make a track or two.

As cool as a character pack would be, I don't think it would be enough to get that many people beyond the fans back playing again. Joe Public probably wouldn't give a fig unless they added more tracks to use said new characters on. So despite the odds I'm kinda thinking this will be more than just a few characters. Character and track pack DLC, or perhaps a GOTY type version.

I'll probably be wrong tho, that's why I'm not the betting type :P

Thats true, and Sumo did let us in on some scraped tracks that didn't make it in (I believe a Space Channele 5 and Pantasy Star Online one?) and there are resources they could pull from other Sega games to make some more (Lost World and Generations assets to make some new Sonic tracks for example), so them making new courses isn't the most unlikely idea. I would love for a GOTY edition to be made; one of the best kart racers of the generation deserves another year to shine, and what better year then when the next generation begins?

 

I said this before a few times, but I really think there making a next gen version for the PS4 and X1; lack of a kart racer for their launches plus tons of content to add in (even if its just the PC exclusive racers coming to consoles) and an excues to fund more characters/tracks equals the best version of 2012's best racing game smile.png.

 

I do wonder though if there making this extra content avaliable to current gen systems, Vita and Wii U; it cant be so hard to port the content down to those systems as the base is there, so all they would have to do is make that extra content a large DLC add-on ala Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.

With all the talk of DLC, what do you guys think we will get? We all have guessed any additional characters that might make it in, but what about tracks?

 

I think that if were getting a big GOTY version or large DLC pack, I think possible extra tracks would be two more sonic courses, three more Sega game-themed tracks and four more legacy courses.

 

The Sonic tracks would be one from generations (Chemical Plant Zone; dem water slides and toxic water would make for a great boat section) and one from Lost World (either Silent Forest with its possiblites of flight sections or Dessert Ruins with it being based off of acts 2 and 3 from the Wii U version). The Sega themed tracks I think would be based on Sega Arcade racers, one from Crazy Taxi (B.D. Joe is in the game and the track could be crazy :)), one from Dayatona (being more of a car-focused track), and a odd-ball track based off of a entriey unexpected Sega game (maybe a flight course based off of Space Hayrer?). The classic tracks could be from Monkey Ball (the dessert track and/or the Monkey Target one), Sonic Heroes Final Fortress (notibly the second of the three tracks), and Billy Hatchers Lava stage (as the ice themed ones would be redunted with a ice themed track already being in the game).

 

So with that, what tacks do you guys think might be part of this DLC?

The only question I could say is... when did they updated the code with those characters? If it was recently.. i'll be surprised that it's being updated for the game.

 

I would be surprised if we actually get more than 7 characters in the game (which I doubt, since I could see in a total of "5 or 4" characters).
