Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed DLC Characters, Sumo Wants Your Ideas
Written By
View author's profile

Sumo Digital is soliciting ideas from fans regarding potential new characters for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

Sumo’s Steve Lycett has requested character suggestions for the mascot racer, promising to take the most popular to SEGA for consideration as DLC.

“I’ll set you a challenge,” Lycett wrote on SEGA’s forum. “Without any policing from the SUMO or SEGA crew, if you can all agree on three characters by the first of December and prove there is sufficient interest of at least 1000 unique people per character, I will present the result to SEGA.” 

“I can’t promise anything will happen as a result, but since you’re starting it, let’s see if you can organise yourselves in the next few weeks to pull that off.”

It’s already well underway. Jump over to the SEGA forum and make your voice heard.

Ryo's in third place atm, but Miku (the pedophilic Japanophile's wet dream) and Segata Sanshiro are unlikely due to licensing issues. So, in other words, it's lookin like Ryo Hazuki, Vectorman and Ristar are gonna be the three characters put forward to SEGA.

Obviously, like many, I'm hopin on a victory for Shenmue, but I ain't actually arsed about whether or not he makes it into the game. I just want SEGA to get the message.

@#1 Spoiler, Wiseman already features in the Nights track on lap 3 you have to dodge his on coming attacks. Also Nights and Reala are already playable characters in the game so I think the Nights franchise is well on display.

Id like to see:
Ryo Hazuki (obviously)
Shou or Tillis from Burning rangers, their vehicle design could be a transforming Burning ship.
Azel from Panzer Dragoon Saga, flight mode could be Atolm dragon and road/bost mode could be a transforming floada thing that you used in the underground caves on Uru.

Rag Rappy (Phantasy Star) Because it's cute

Ristar (Ristar The Shooting Star) Because he's like the prequel of what sonic could have been in my view.

-Hatsune Miku (Vocaloid/Project DIVA) If you haven't heard of her YOUTUBE HER then you'll understand why she should have been in game as standard!

Lara Croft, seeing as Tomb Raider 1 was originally SEGA Saturn exclusive. Have her on a Quad Bike maybe, or her Motorbike.

I'd love to see Ryo Hazuki & Billy Hatcher for newcomers, Toe Jam & Earl, Bayonetta, a Shining Force character, Blaze from Streets of Rage, Tyris Flare, Rouge the Bat ( my fave Sonic character ), Kid Chameleon, Ristar, Dynamite Heddy, Sketch from Comix Zone, Vectorman, the original Outrun car, Hibana from Nightshade and a Phantasy Star character. Any 3 of those would definitely get me more interested in buying the game ( though the fact they chose to have a DC VMU as a playable racer over 1 of the above is pretty retarded )

they should bring some shenmue characters to the game to see how the dlc would sell to give hope to make shenmue 3 and bring shenmue 1 and 2 to the 360

@ #23 & 25
Avatar is already in the game, you have to complete the first 5 of the grand prix races to unlock it. He seems to be voiced by a complete idiot though, kind of sounds like an even more drunk Big the cat...

I know he was a Konami Character, but i'd love to see Sparkster from Rocket Knight Adventures in there.
Bubsy the Bobcat, Chuck D.Head (DecapAttack), Zeke & Julie (Zombies Ate My Neighbours), Rick (Splatterhouse) would also be fantastic.

just thought of another Sega character that seems to be forgotten and would be cool to see in this: Grave, from Gungrave.

Definitely Vanelope Von Schweetz. It would be weird to just have Wreck-It Ralph and not her!

You could make a Sonic Heroes Character DLC pack.
Containing the other popular members, Big the cat, Cream the rabbit, Rouge the bat, E-123 Omega, Espio the chameleon, Charmy the bee and lastly Vector the crocodile/alligator.

Or possibly a project DIVA DLC pack. But that's just my opinion, do your best~!
