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?

Haha very cool. That racing game seems to be quite a decent game. Too bad I don't have a next gen console here, on which I could test it.

Wii and DS are also options. Here's hoping for a Saturn port! ;)

Barry, always on the lookout for anything Saturn related. Good find ;)

Judging by another image that was leaked, you play as the adult Jacky and Akira. With that in mind maybe they transform into the kids for their all star move? After all, the VF Kids were, according to the box "20% faster than VF2"!
