SEGA announces Alex Kidd for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

While some fans have known of Alex Kidd’s upcoming addition to Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed’s roster, SEGA has finally officially announced themselves that we can expect Alex Kidd to unlock on Christmas day. The news came from the Sonic the Hedgehog Facebook page:

Happy Holidays from Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed! If you fire up Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on Christmas Day, you’ll find a little surprise under your tree — Alex Kidd jumps into the race! He doesn’t need to pedal to take to land, air and sea — two powerful JanKenPon engines allow him to roar around like it’s Christmas in Miracle World. Surely this is a better present than some paper, scissors and stones!

Alex Kidd wasn’t quite a surprise for all, as it was learned early on that files for him existed within the game and eventually fans figured out that they could unlock Alex if they used their console offline and moved the date ahead to December 25th. However, once they logged back on and the clock changed to the current time, Alex would disappear. So don’t open your gifts early, be a good SEGA fan and wait until Christmas day!

    So, to clarify, is this free DLC or have they just not announced a price?

  2. Shigs says:

    He’s already in the game. You can set your console to 12/25 and unlock him now if you want.

  3. Barry the nomad says:

    But like I said, he may disappear if you go back online. At least on the 360.

  4. So what if I’m travelling on 12/25, will I never be able to unlock him?

  5. Lenticular Leo says:

    Available only on Christmas day or forever after Christmas too?

  6. Barry the nomad says:

    Unlocked as soon as you play the game from the 25th onwards. Even if you buy the game next year or play it weeks later it’ll unlock. No worries to those traveling
