SEGA confirms Ryo Hazuki in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

It appears that Ryo Hazuki’s inevitable appearance in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is about to finally happen. We learned it was probably going to happen when Yogscast accidentally livestreamed a non-public version of the game with Hazuki as a racer, but until yesterday, SEGA hadn’t officially confirmed it.

Ryo Hazuki’s arcade vehicle transforms into an Out-Run machine when on water. Awesome!

SEGA published an image showing Hazuki driving a Hang-On arcade machine attached to an inflatable raft with the words “Is it a boat?” and today featured another with Ryo piloting a flying Space Harrier cabinet with the words “Is it a plane?” Tomorrow will probably be the time when SEGA publishes the last image, assumedly with the words “NO! It’s an angsty, fatherless teenager who can’t take a hint from a cute girl!”

With SEGA’s timing, we won’t be too surprised if Hazuki becomes available on Jan. 1, 2014. What a way to start the year off, eh?
