Ristar ASR concept by viperxmns Ristar ASR concept by viperxmns
Ristar was recently added as a cameo character for the game "Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing". Sumo has been responding to fan input, so as a result Ristar made it into the game in some form. I've been pondering a vehicle design for Ristar for a while, if he were a racer, finally put it down on paper.

Drawing is mostly marker, some PS retouching has been done.

Thanks, I've actually heard some Sumo feedback on it, apparently they thought it was neat but the front wheels apparently wouldn't work the way they're currently designed or something like that, lol

There's a poll going on at the moment for DLC Characters in Sonic & All Star Racing Transformed. We need to get Ristar to 1,000 votes for him to be considered.

I'd love to see Ristar driving around in that vehicle, the little guy needs to make a comeback :)

It seems the main reason Sumo has given for Ristar not being playable is that they felt his character design would have not translated well for the game environment, like seeing him from behind would be too nondescript or awkward or something. I'm not sure I agree.. really cool that he's at least the flagman

I’m really hoping that Ristar appears as a playable racer in Transformed. But what I’m wondering is, if he is going to be playable in Transformed, what would his All-Star Move be? :confused:

I was thinking his Meteor Strike, where he charges up on a Star Handle, launches and knocks out anyone ahead of him

So, Ristar and NiGHTS are in the game, but only as NPCs. That got me a bit pissed back then. =n=

If only he was playable. The game seems to have more characters from Dreamcast games than from Genesis console. At least Alex Kidd was playable. Before Sonic, he was SEGA's first mascot. They could've done the same thing to Ristar. After all, he is the prototype of Sonic.

Anyways, the design of Ristar's car looks awesome. I like it! :) Well done. But the back feels kinda "empty", though.

Dude, that looks legit! 0_0

I really wish he was playable in All Stars Racing, especially since there wasn't any major Genesis specific characters in the game other than Sonic. Granted, I'm glad they gave him some screen time in the DLC race track, but I like I said, it'd be much better to play as him, and even race across the track with Ristar's music tracks. xP

Anyway, you did such an awesome job on this! Keep it up. ^_^

Top-notch car design, but... I think it needs a bit more decoration on the back. It's looking pretty bland there and after all that's where players would be looking most of the time. Also I think his car should be more of a neon sparkly hovercraft but that's just me.

Any chance you'll be doing more of these?

True, the rear of the car isn't fully fleshed out; I neglected the tail-lights, for one thing. Otherwise I came up with an idea for NiGHTS which I haven't posted here.. it's him as a jet with Claris and Elliot in a dual cockpit. A sparkly hovercraft idea would work for Ristar, I'd agree.

Ristar can taunt at other racers by waving his arms around

Like when Kazooie pops out of Banjo's backpack and does some silly poses

You could use his stretchy amrs to grab on to other players' cars! XD Slow em down!

This is a really thought out design as well. The primary colors fit really well with the design.
