What happened to all the Sonic Racing Hype?

Wasn't Hatsune Miku coming as DLC or was that all just Sega generating fan hype to sell the game and then doing nothing?

It's a slightly above average kart racer. It had an appropriate amount of hype that lasted an appropriate length of time.

There was a poll on Sega's website that had Hatsune Miku among other options. Miku won the poll, however:

1. It was never guaranteed the winner would be turned into DLC:
- If SART wasn't successful enough, it's possible that there will be no DLC because it wouldn't be worthwhile.
- Even if they make DLC, it's still possible it might end up being someone else. There could be licensing issues with Miku as that vocaloid thing she comes from does not seem to be 100% Sega.
Also, that she won the poll is certainly a very unrealistic representation of her relevance, particularly in the west. That a bunch of vocaloid fans/importers headed to the poll is nice, but the average western Sega fan/gamer doesn't know her.

2. That there was a poll in the first place clearly shows that we're not talking about that lame kind of DLC that is already finished when the game is released. Development of DLC would have started after the poll was finished, so give it some time.

Sumo (People behind Sonic Racing Transformed) are currently making sure that the PC version of the game gets released without a hitch. Since that comes out on the PC soon, it won't be long until we hear about DLC Characters.

And one of them has already been given the confirmation...

it was good but no lasting appeal. I liked the first one a lot better anyways.

It's one of the greatest kart racers of the genre.


Fix'd.
