Sega teases Ryo Hazuki's return to racing

Check out the license plate

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.
