Fan Feedback May Not Have Been in Vain
So far, nearly all indications show that Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is not selling to expectations, or at least the expectations one would expect for being Sega’s flagship Holiday title of 2012. So it’s a bit surprising to see Sumo executive producer Steve Lycett confirm, at minimum, significant progress on bringing DLC to the multi-terrain racer.
On Thursday, Lycett afforded an update on the Sega forums:
Actually… We got approval for a specific character this morning. But that’s all I can say right now…
You may remember a while back when those same forums hosted a poll asking about preferred character choices for DLC, if the idea ever got off the ground. Thousands offered their input, and the top choices were taken by Lycett to convince Sega of supporting the racer beyond the base release.
If we hear of any further developments, we will pass that along here.
