Steve Lylett of Sega gave more info on the Wii U version of Sonic & All Stars Racing and its unique features. He mentioned that the game was “easily on par” with the 360 and PS3 versions.
- It features off-screen play on the tablet. This is performed simply by performing a swipe with your finger down the touchscreen.
- You can use the controller as a wheel to control your vehicles in-game thanks to the gyroscope.
- Mini-games that utilize asymmetric gameplay. One of them puts the GamePad user in control of AiAi (from Super Monkey Ball) while others with the Pro controller control Sonic and Tails. The Pro controller user controlling Sonic and Tails have to collect bananas while the GamePad user in control of AiAi has to squash them.
