SEGA Teasing Ryo Hazuki in All Stars Transformed UPDATED

Sunday, December 29th, 2013

Update 30/12/2013

SEGA have no revealed the flying transformation of Ryo Hazuki in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Check the screenshot above to see Ryo piloting an Space Harrier cabinet. No more further developments on what platforms will receive Ryo as a playable DLC character.

Original Story

SEGA are teasing what appears to be a new DLC character for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed in the form of Ryo Hazuki. The above image has appeared on their Facebook page showing Ryo Hazuki’s vehicle in boat-form which includes a lovely little nod to SEGA’s Hang-On arcade cabinet.

No announcement has been made regarding whether this will be a PC exclusive character as so far the PC version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed has been the only version of the game to be graced with new characters after launch day. Fingers crossed Ryo makes it to consoles.

Yoshi’s Island Themed DLC Now Available for Sonic Lost World, Zelda DLC Rumoured for Next Year

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

In scenes that would make my 6 year old self vomit copiously in pure shock, Sonic Lost World has received a DLC stage themed around Yoshi’s Island. It’s available on the Wii-U eShop now and it’s a free download. Check out the announcement trailer below:

In today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, Satoru Iwata also said the following:

“Fans will be able to ‘Link’ their Wii U systems to the Nintendo E-Shop early next year to download this DLC as well.”

Many fans are taking this hint as a confirmation of Zelda-themed DLC for Sonic Lost World in the new year. All this SEGA/Nintendo collaborative DLC is making my head hurt!

3D After Burner II Coming to Japanese 3DS eShop Next Week

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Japan are getting a second wave of 3DS SEGA classics! The first in the series will be After Burner II which launches December 18th, but obviously only for Japan at this time.

From what I can gather from the official website the new version adds:

– Gyro controls
– Stereoscopic 3D visuals
– A stage select
– A music player which can be used in game

The other interesting thing is that this port is based on the arcade version and not the Mega Drive version.

Sonic 2 Remastered Releasing Tomorrow; Hidden Palace Zone is Unlockable

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Christian “The Taxman” Whitehead returns once again with a Retro Engine-powered port of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Android and iOS devices. The new version of the 16 bit classic launches tomorrow and will be a free update for those who already own the existing port of Sonic 2 for these devices.

Along with the usual enhancements of a widescreen display and more accurate controls, Whitehead has seen fit to add Hidden Palace Zone as an unlockable bonus stage. This is not the Hidden Palace Zone from Sonic & Knuckles either; this is the version that was discovered in Sonic 2 Beta. Whitehead has obviously not left the stage incomplete and has given it a lovely makeover which now includes gimmicks like the water jet you can see above.
