Sonic Adventure New Year's DLC (Lost Video Game DLC; 1998)
|This article has been tagged as Needing work due to its lack of content.|
The Sonic Adventure New Year's DLC was a piece of downloadable content released by SEGA to commemorate New Year's 1998. According to Sonic Retro, when active, the DLC would place a traditional kadomatsu in Station Square. The DLC was initially released on December 26th, 1998 and was removed entirely on January 7th, 1999. On December 29th, it received a patch due to a glitch that made it impossible to finish Knuckles' story while the DLC was active. The DLC's file size was reportedly 66 blocks of memory, and the file name would be something along the lines of "SONICADV_001".
Additionally, the kadomatsu may have played the song "Dreams, Dreams ~ Sweet Mix in Holy Night" from the 1996 game NiGHTS into Dreams when touched, as the song remains on the disc unused by any of the other DLC released.
A Japanese Geocities site claims to have it for download, but the link is broken. No other save file archives seem to have any version of this DLC and, due to the temporary nature of the DLC, it's highly unlikely this will ever be found.
