Virtua Fighter Kids in New Sega Racer?


Sorry, but I'm too excited to type! According to the newly launched Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing website, Jacky Bryant has joined the roster of playable characters. Today has been a big day for Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing reveals. Ulala and B.D. Joe of Crazy Taxi were announced this morning. But those are Dreamcast stars, now it's time for a Saturn All-Star to shine!

Why are they showing Akira over Jacky's name? Well Akira is actually the icon for Jacky's All-Star move, a special character specific move in the game. This means that not only do you race as Jacky (presumably in a race car), but if you get the Akira icon, Jacky's old sparring partner comes out to lend a hand.

Also, note the character style for Akira. Could Sega be reviving the Virtua Fighter Kids art style?
