Sonic Superstars Gets Shadow the Hedgehog Costume DLC

There’s new cosmetic DLC for Sonic Superstars, and it puts Sonic the Hedgehog into a Shadow costume. It is now free on all platforms for consoles and PCs. [Thanks, Wario64!]

Note that the add-on isn’t a part of a patch or official update. You actually need to visit the eShop, PlayStation Store, Steam, or Xbox Store to download it first. Then, once you’re in-game, you will see it as an option in when you’re picking your character. After you choose who you want to be, say that would be Sonic, you can then select Shadow.

Here’s the official art of the Sonic Superstars DLC from Steam, which shows it will put Sonic the Hedgehog in a Shadow costume, rather than transform him into the other character. 

As a reminder, we’ve seen some other free costumes show up for the game already. There’s a Holiday one that makes Sonic look like Santa. There’s also a Lego Sonic skin that turns him into a minifig. 

This comes ahead of a number of Shadow appearances in various forms of Sonic the Hedgehog media. For example, the third live-action movie is going to feature the character. We also learned at the January 2024 State of Play that Sonic x Shadow Generations will launch in Fall 2024 and feature the two title characters as its stars.

Sonic Superstars is available for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
