Sony Europe have just announced via their PlayStation Blog that DLC for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing will be hitting the PlayStation Store later today. What is the DLC you ask? Fans of Ryo who didn’t get hold of the Ryo-Forklift pre-order code will be happy to be able to finally nab it and Sonic fans will definitely be pleased to be able to race as Sonic’s robotic nemesis Metal Sonic. Retro Sonic fans will be chuffed to be able to race and explore Eggman’s classic Death Egg Zone base.
Here’s the list of prices –
Sonic & SEGA Allstars Racing –
Metal Sonic & Death Egg Zone (£4.79/€5.99)
Ryu Forklift Character Pack (£3.99/€4.99)

No word on if the U.S. will be getting this today, we’ve checked the U.S. Blog but no store update yet. We’ll let you know when this is made available later today, meanwhile let us know what you think in the comments.
