Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed will have DLC, but the content of some of that post-launch goodness may be in the hands of the fans. As members of the Racing Transformed forum began throwing out ideas for characters to be added as DLC, Sumo Digital executive producer Steve Lycett issued a challenge:
"Without any policing from the Sumo or SEGA crew, if you can all agree on three characters by the 1st of December and prove there is sufficient interest of at least 1,000 unique people per character, I will present the result to SEGA."
And so the fans did. There are now separate pages on Change.org for each of the characters eligible to be included in Racing Transformed, and each signature counts as a vote for that character. The three current leaders are Hatsune Miku, Sega Saturn mascot Segata Sanshiro and Shenmue's Ryo Hazuki, each with more than 2,000 votes.
There is no promise that Lycett will be able to convince Sega that this is a good idea, but there's always a chance this whole thing could work, so feel free to join in. Besides, there's nothing dangerous about randomly attaching your name to things on the internet.
