/UPDATE END

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)
Rating: PEGI 7
Availability: All locales

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.

  1. :(. I wish it was someone else than Metal Sonic. But the Death Egg will be cool (I hope).

    ALso, what if this is an April Fools joke from Sony xD? I’d be happy, but I don’T see it coming.

  2. Oh and wheres the FIRST@TSS?!

  3. @ MarcelloF
    I was tempted lol!

  4. No! First @ BIGNEWS!

  5. FamilyGAMEGuy8 says:

    So Metal Sonic announced eh? SWEET!!! But on April 1st………errrrrrrrrrrm SEGA!!!!!

  6. Don’t know how much in USD but I will say that it seems expensive. I could care less about shenmue but metal sonic and the death egg!? That was a suggestion from me! I need to get this game!

    I hope it’s sonic 2s deth egg… I wasn’t a fan of s3&ks version of the stage

  7. Well guys sony is a professional company, I seriously doubt they’d do an AF joke.
    Although it does sound like something they’d do

  8. *Sigh* Love the DLC. Hate the fact its not in the US yet.

  9. rhonddaboy13 says:

    lucky PS3 owners rediculous lol

  10. CCowell125 says:

    Ryu Forklift is on Xbox LIVE now for 340 Microsoft Points. No Death Egg Zone or Metal Sonic though.

  11. Ermmm CCowell i just checked ASR page on Xbox Live and I see no Ryo Forklift DLC on there lol

  12. People are winding me up, I keep hearing the rest of the DLC is up and then I checked all regions of Xbox.com and my console but it’s not there XD

  13. BIGNEWS IS AWESOME, eh has the lastest info about ASR and tell me where should I go during holidays :D

    Also, doesn’t afraid of anything.

  14. FamilyGAMEGuy8 says:

    Wait…..Cameo = Non-playable…..Ristar is cameo….SHIIIIIIIIIII………!!!!!

  15. HeavyHorse says:

    Aw man, not up for US yet. Hopefully it doesn’t take too long…

  16. OMGRISTARILOVEU.

  17. knuxtaben says:

    Ristar looks so chubby and awesome!

  18. For some reason, Metal Sonic/Death Egg has been removed from the PS Store!

  19. HiFiHedgehog says:

    Ristar FTW!

  20. MarcelloF says:

  21. @ MarcelloF

  23. Brocky_Christ says:

  24. Video of the stage and Metal Sonic if anyone wants to see how wonderful it is.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Av9nnnoGkTQ

  25. Ristar: Hi!

  26. Ristar: So tell what am i donig here? yeeeeeeeaaaah right i’m from space and now i’m inside Eggman’s death egg so that makes me a part of the Sonic universe woohooo.

    That was so random Sega >:|

  27. HighCaliburFun says:

    What about us PC users, huh Sega?

  28. He’s bigger than I imagined, but I love it.
    You have my heart. <3

  29. Ristar: PLAY WIT ME!

  30. Ryo forklift on US PS3 store o.o

  31. BlueHedgehog25 says:

    SWEET AND DANG!!

  32. Jix Hedgehog says:

    APRIL FOO……. *see’s the video*

    Huh… how envious would everyone else be if you managed to snag the download before it was removed

  33. Doesn’t look like Ristar appears in online multiplayer. Shadzter, Casanova and I tried it earlier today and he wasn’t there. He popped up in Single Race though.

  34. GamerPriest says:

    Why can’t it be on wii?! D<

  35. Jix Hedgehog says:

    @ GamerPriest : Wii has no where to store the download

  36. Death Egg/Metal better be on the X360 version too.

  37. chazer127 says:

    …its times like this that make me wish i had a 360 so i can get the 360 version…

  38. @ GamerPriest.

    The file size for this DLC alone was well over 100MB. You need to talk to Nintnedo about the lack of the HD for that one.

  39. If Steve knew about the leak, and even asked if you could find Ristar and all that…

    Why take it down?

  40. Because Sega changed their mind and didn’t want it released so early… Why they did this is beyond me.

  41. Metal Sonic would have been great, but Rouge would be even better!

    Surely it would make sense to give the fans as many new characters as possible?

  42. the metal sonic character was my idea at first!

  43. ToastyYoshi says:

    Damn, i was too late, i think there putting it up this week coming, apparently “This weeks DLC is Ryo in his forklift”

  44. If your right ToastyYoshi- Best news I’ve heard all day.

  45. Tails6000 says:

    The forklift is COOL! (I got it yesterday and it is awesome)

  46. wait my playstation store only has the forklift and it was pretty cool when i got it. but even if it came back i am saving for sonic 4

  47. Tails6000 says:

    Me too, but if I have some left over I’ll get metal and death egg (I found out it’s level intro is the egg hanger from fighters, and it’s theme is death eggs eye from fighters I SAW A VID WITH THAT!) but forklift is awesome (I wanna floor it when I get the allstar!)

  48. even though i don’t own a next gen console and dont own this game this game is preety cool though instead of metal sonic they should of given us Mecha Sonic and the ability of transforming into Super Mecha Sonic that would of been cool

  49. I see no metal sonic or death egg on the PS Network, oh well, Rouge or Silver would have been a cool driver add on, glad I got the PS3 version, it is nice to be able to invite a few friends over for a few laps on multiplayer, my cousin recently got it on his PS3 too so I can have a few online games with him, PS3 and Xbox version is a lot better, the graphics aren’t as crap, it is more realistic in many aspects, the physics seems more natural, it is HD and I find the tilt to steer on PS3 controllers to have much more control than the wii on this game.

    Who knows why Nintendo skipped out on featuring a hard drive or good graphics or HD resolution or any of that stuff but it must really be a pain for wii owners, all this great DLC extending the life of many games and they miss out :L

    I guess it doesn’t matter really, the majority of wii users are old people and 5 year olds anyway, 99% of them wouldn’t have even heard of DLC before so it probably doesn’t phase them lol, hopefully Sega will come out with more DLC for this great game, I’d like to see Blaze or Gum as playable characters, Rouge and Silver would be nice or maybe Sega could buy RockStar and have mobsters from GTA as playable characters, have a group of 7 in a saloon car from the 90s shooting Sonic’s tyres, possibly abducting Billy Hatcher or melting his engine, rofl
