    Can’t wait to update.

  3. DCGX says:

    I wonder if the Vita version will get this update.

  4. Hento says:

    Did they ever get those extra DLC characters finished?
    The ones that the players had to vote for.

  5. Gagaman says:

    Blimey, they fixed the Yokozuna one! Just beating that ONE time attack course was hard enough, you’ll defiantly want to do that before patching, as beating them all is down right impossible.

    Glad they fixed the team sonic one though, that one was beyond stupid.

    • Kurono says:

      PC has been getting these patches much earlier than the console versions. We have been beta testing them with the devs

    They need to Fix the Alex Kid Console Mod on Vita and anything else that has the issue, cause I will not start over just to get the mod. Basically if you unlocked the console mod before he was unlocked, you don’t get his making it impossible to get every mod. and I’m trying to get them all…

    the spick option still only gives you the star on easy mode
