Wakey wakey, rise and shine! Segata Sanshiro has been in the night and unlocked for all of you a festive surprise by way of Alex Kidd in Sonic & All-Stars Transformed.
The festive freebie has been known about for some time of course, with SEGA exclusively revealing (a month after everyone actually knew *ahem*) the update that adds Sonic’s predecessor as SEGA mascot in for his second bout of All-Stars action.
What do you have to do to actually get him in your game?
Simple – just turn it on. At the menu screen you should get a message saying
“Happy Holidays from SEGA! Alex Kidd has joined the race!”
If it doesn’t appear for you immediately just complete a race – any race – as some achievements, etc seem to require the game to do a little check after a race ha completed to notice the in-game flags.
But yes, Merry Christmas to you and happy racing!
