With the end of the year approaching, Sega let loose a nice surprise for fans on their Twitter page. Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed is chock full of references and fan service, and now we can expect the return of Shenmue's Ryo Hazuki in their much-loved racing title. Though Ryo was a playable character in the previous All-Stars Racing game, he was noticeably absent for the sequel. Now, after weeks of rumors and some leaks, Sega has finally come out with some official images for his return.

Surprisingly, Ryo has ditched his reliable forklift for a vehicle that transforms into various references to classic Sega arcade titles. From Out Run, Space Harrier, and Hang-On -- it's clear that the folks at Sega had some fun with this character. He's got one hell of a license plate too. Sega really knows how to troll fans, but of course it's all in good fun.

While we still don't have a date for when he'll be available, it's likely we'll see an announcement soon.

Is it a car? [Sega]

Good lord, Nintendo gave Link a motorcycle!

We've seen a couple images of Link in Mario Kart 8 before but nothing like this. Take special note of the front of the motorcycle. So cool! Hope the vehicle's stats are good. As a reminder, the DLC is coming in two waves. Lin...more

Stop being dicks, online racers

I wouldn't call myself a fan of racing games, per se. Dale's a fan of racing games. I'm just kind of a curious bystander that likes to indulge every now and then. I think they act as sort of a palate cleanser for me, the pick...more
