First Sonic And All Stars Racing Wii U trailer

See how you'll use the GamePad in Sonic's new racer

This new Sonic And All-Stars Racing Transformed trailer shows how you'll use the GamePad in Sonic's new Wii U racer. As you can see, you can use the GamePad to view what's behind you, track weapons and make use of the controller's gyroscope to steer your vehicle.

Also showcased are the exclusive multiplayer modes which enable five players to get involved in the action; one on the GamePad and the others using Wii controllers. The game also features 10-player multiplayer.

    It's surprisingly cheap on Amazon at Ł29.99, I wonder if that's due to a lack of demand? Anyway, I will be buying this sometime next year because there are a lot more games to get before this.

    On shopto.net all games are under Ł40 and this game is Ł24.

    I liked the way the vehicles changed from road to air to water. It may be controversial to say so but I think this is done better than Mariokart 7.

    To be honest I thought this was going to be rubbish! I have to say this does look very good but I will wait for the ONM review and get it after Christmas if it scores well.

    Be warned though early showings of this game had frame rate issues on the Wii u version only. But this could have been early code getting it up and running on Wii u in time for shows for people to play it.

    Just imagine what Nintendo themselves can produce on Wii u when they show the next Mario Kart off it will be stunning!

    This trailer rocks. Seriously, it has exactly what we want, plus five-player local multiplayer? Sold.

    Definitely picking this up.

    If this plays even half as well as the original did it'll be well worth picking up. I actually preferred Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing to Mario Kart, it was just let down by a few small issues such as the tracks losing a lot of the cool stuff going on around them when you played in split screen or the fact that some characters just weren't really capable of competing with the rest when player skill was equal. If the heavier racers are now better balanced, and if they've taken advantage of the WiiU's RAM to keep the courses interesting during multiplayer, then this should be the definitive 'carting' game up until (and even potentially after) the next Mario Kart comes out.

    Looking really good,I think I might just go for this.

    That looks as tasty as a big chocolate cake that's now half price!!!

    Does anyone know when we will be seeing reviews for the launch games? As we are getting trouser snake twitching excitingly close now!

    That's a good price, but is ShopTo a reliable seller? I've spoken to someone about them before and they had various problems with them.
