How Ristar became the flagman in SASR: Transformed

As everyone should know, NiGHTS was was the original ‘flagman’ in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, but when Sonic All-Stars Racing: Transformed game out, NiGHTS had become a racer (actually he became the vehicle, with a cherub as the from NiGHTS into Dreams as the driver) and Ristar had taken the mantle of flag bearer.

But why the change? Well this fan art from Tumblr blog, NotNights, might explain how it happened.

About Graham Cookson

I'm the European Editor of SEGA Nerds and co-founder of the original SEGA Nerds website with Chris back in 2004 or 2005 (genuinely can't remember which year it was now!). I've been a SEGA fan pretty much all my gaming life - though I am also SEGA Nerds' resident Microsoft fanboy (well, every site needs one) and since SEGA went third party, I guess it's now ok to admit that I like Nintendo and Sony too :0) I'm also the Content Manager of the big data company, Digital Contact Ltd, in the UK:
