Oct 5th, 2012

SEGA has released some new Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Wii U media in the form of brand new screenshots and a new trailer. The screenshots showcase some of the playable characters and levels (and the new vehicles), while the trailer shows us some of the new game modes, including online split screen, and “battle arenas”, where the there are more objectives than just winning the race.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will support up to 10 players online in the same race, and will feature racing on land, water, and in the air (and even in space!). The game will be a Wii U launch title on November 18, 2012.

        ATTENTION! Did you know that your caps lock is On? Please do not use Caps Lock. Every sentences that you type in all capital letter, makes the WiiU more and more sucky. You don’t want a crummy WiiU, don’t you? Same here. So please don’t use caps lock. Already your last post turned StarFox U, into this Sonic game. Don’t make it turn into a sucky Sonic game, or a Barbie game. Thanks.

            Look, do we seriously have to take sides? Both games are great, ok? And I say that with personal experience. Wii U Daily doesn’t need a fan war on their site.

      • jay

        What was big ths game pad or the system and was it fun to play

        • King of Red Lions

          This video is pretty ironic ๐Ÿ˜€
          *Space Race*

    • Noteak

      I agree where’s the Mario Cart?

      • Troll patrol.

        Its obviously in development , mario kart wii was by far the most popular (none pack in) game of its generation with 32,000,000 copies sold !!! it sold nearly twice as much as the 360’s top selling game . But the 360’s top seller as we all know it more hardcore = KINNECT ADVENTURES .

        Imagine a wiiu mario kart where you can play without split screen using the gamepad to achieve glorious things. Imagine a wiiu mario kart with absolout super graphics !

        • NavyBlueYoshi

          I saw rumors all over the Internet about Mario kart U being the next double dash, where the second player(in the back or even if
          Your playing single player mode) uses the game pad to properly aim at enemies instead of just dropping them and yes it should have the option id using 2 gamepads when there are 2 or more players . Again, this is just a rumor but that would be so AWSOME!!!!!

        • 007 1/2

          and 4 player split screen online and being able to drive boats and planes and spaceships in addition to karts. maybe they can release new courses every 6 months or something. mario kart u will be the best mario kart yet.

        • Nintendo is da best


      • Madmagican

        Give it some time. I’m sure we’ll our our new mariokart by the end of 2013

        • Madmagican

          replace the first “our” with ‘get’

      • Brayden


      • nintendoododo

        it is mario kart you fucking idiot

        • Cugno the Swiss

          nintendoododo, learn good manners or shut the hell up. No one needs you to demonstrate your 13 years of maturity.

        • Asiancake

          How this Mario kart if it say sonic racing

      • ceramicsaturn

        What are you guys on? I’m sorry, but I’ll agree Sonic games in general have been pretty bad for quite a long time, but this game wasn’t developed by the guys that made those Sonic games and it shows. Sumo Digital has made games like Outrun, and this plays very much like it.

        The speed, balance, track design, graphics, and online were all better in the last version of All Stars. I thought Mario Kart Wii was a train wreck when it came to most of those catagories. Seriously makes you come off like you never even played the game.

        Liking Mario Kart personally a little bit more is one thing, calling All Stars shit is something else entirely and makes you sound like an uneducated fanboy.

    • Xblade13

      I agree.
      It’s ironic when you think about it. Mario’s kart racer is better than Sonic’s. Mario, the fat platforming plummer, beat Sonic, the fastest thing alive, in a race! XD

    • Nintyfan

      Come on guys, give it a little faith. I would wait till the game releases and then conclude if its better or not.

      I think it looks EPIC from the trailer. It captures momentum than MK7.

    • just ninTendo

      yes but mario is best character and the developer of it is nintendo and shigeru miyamoto you cant campare it with sonic and all star racing

  • Nintenlord

    More more more…ok enough

  • john carlos

    boring! just a re-make of the popular titles of sonic and racing games that xbox 360 has but worse, since this isnt in full hd , just in high resolution . just a another gimmick that the wii u has to offer.

    • Laud

      You know this trailer isn’t even for the Wii U right?

      I guess all you have to offer to the community is ignorance so get out of my house.

    • Hydrowave99

      This game is going to be in full hd. Its another game of a series of games and it happens to be in full hd because this is going to be another version of a game rather than a port. This is the second in the series and looking at the other versions of it, this version looks the best

    • *Sigh*

      If you’re being sarcastic, work on your delivery because that was poorly executed.
      If you’re being serious, God help the gaming community if idiots like you are around. I won’t even explain why you’re an idiot, because you probably wouldn’t understand.

      • Nintedward .

        Easy on the verbal flamethrower there *Sigh* , you burned him so bad you singed all of our brows and lashes!

      • theBALLANCEDopinion

        HAHAHA he is literally too stupid to insult.

    • Nintendo Power (Star Mission)

      A gimmick? Xbox smartglass is a gimmick. (Why call sony and microsoft fanboys when you can call them fanbitch?)

    • NoPUNintendo

      I’m guessing you must have recently discovered the word “gimmick” haven’t you? Oh my, look at the time. It’s past 7’o clock. Shouldn’t you be in bed?

      • Nintedward .

        Its these kids who have A = only just turned 12 and mum has finally bought them a 360 , or B = they were too poor and have only just gotten a 360 .

        Now they are trying to defend it with their lifes , cus they’re stuck with it for the next 4 years…

        • Nintedward .

          I forgot to mention that I was a lowlife nerd also that im dedicated to nintendo because I cant get a girlfriend. Oh did I just i verbally flamethrower my lashes and my peach fuzz.

          • *.*


          • Nintedward .

            That’s real mature of you , clone .

            You feel the need to clone people for internet attention ???
            Please go and smack yourself in the face … You piece of dog turd.

          • MarioBestFriend

            It was pretty immature , but let’s be realistic , it was pretty funny what he said and true, I mean both of you are here for attention right?

          • Kidonatree

            Seriously Nintedward? Stop replying to urself and grow up u loser!

          • Nintedward .

            @marios best friend . No it was not funny it was childish .

            If you think thats funny , then well done for having a really low quality sense of humour ….. and yes , I have had many many girlfriends in my 21 years .
            Been there , done that , got the t-shirt .

            @kidonatree , I’m not replying to myself you gimp , I’m replying to some guy who has left a pathetic little clone comment , becuase thats the funniest and whittiest thingf he can come up with . so STFU you asshole.

            If you don’t like , then you can GEEEEEET OOOUUUUT !!!!

          • WiiLikeU

            Nintedward stop complaining, no one cares about your past imaginary boyfriends… grow up and let people express their own opinions. The only person that got burned is YOU!

          • Nintedward .

            @wiilikeU . No i didn’t get burned . You are just wishing that was the case.
            Because some idiot leaves a stupid little comment like that , doesn’t mean you get ”burned” .

            Nobody has been burned here , this is a forum not a face to face discusion.

            you can go around saying to people on the internet ”you caln’t get a girlfriend , hardy haaa” , but that doesn’t mean anything at all . I have infact had many girlfriends , so how would that be burning me ?? thats just buring people’s imagination .

            STFU , Have a nice day .

          • Wii U Fearless

            Weren’t you the one who said ” burning” first , you even dissed yourself on the second post, stop trolling it gets very boring after a while .

        • NoPUNintendo

          Whoa don’t dis the 360 bro. Every console has its pros or cons. Some people will defend to the death a single console. The 360 has its ups and downs to. You don’t have to single target it.

          • Nintedward .

            Was I dissing the 360 ??? noooo , just saying that kids try to make out like its the best console ever , when in truth its got virtualy no exclusives and is 7 years old … ps3 + wii >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>xbox 360 .

          • WiiUniverse

            Your right about this! First thing you mentioned correctly . Xbox beats the Wii , Xbox beats the ps3 , but the only way wii and ps3 and Xbox can win is by a little, is if they combined both since by themselfs then can’t match the Xbox 360.

    • revolution5268

      lol dumbass this is the same trailer they use on the other ver, the difference is the title of the video.

    • Nintendofan4life

      Sadly, I strongly agree with Mr. Carlos. Nintendo hasn’t been original these days… sonic + racing? Cmon grow up! It’s angers me so much to hear how much nintendo has been failing… sad to hear the truth isn’t it?

      • Reggie “My Body Is Ready” Fils-Aime

        Just STFU & GTFO. How stupid are you, Nintendo didn’t make this game Sega did, *hint* *hint* notice how it’s coming to other consoles. Ignorant bitch.
        Most likely if Nintendo did make it, it would have been directed towards kids around 7. Regardless that is still probably the age group being looked at.

      • CheckItNow12

        This game is made by Sega…

      • CheckItNow12

        And something tells me you’re not really a “nintendofan4life”

      • MarioBestFriend

        I completely agree . Nintendo has been going down since they releases NES , it was the worse. Nintendo should stick with making Pokemon plush toys since making video games isn’t something they are good with .

        • CheckItNow12


        • JumpMan

          i don’t even…

      • Nintenlord

        What this have to do whit nintendo? Nintendo not original? Just cause you play it on your xbox or ps3 , you do know almost all games can be traced back to nintendo?

      • BubbleMan v2

        You do realize that Sonic is a Sega IP right? Nintendo did not make this game…

    • Xblade13

      You do know that HD MEANS high resolution, right? New Super Mario Bros. U is HD in the same way as Gears of War is. HD does NOT mean art style, textures, graphics engine, or lighting effects. ALL it means is that the number of pixels on the screen is 720p or 1080p. This game is HD, as are all Wii U, PS3, and 360 games.

      Plus, this is a sequel, not a remake. It’s coming to the other consoles, too. Wii U has unique features that will set it apart from the other versions.

      And, technically every gaming innovation ever made was a “gimmick”. The NES’s + control pad was a gimmick that changed gaming forever. The SNES’s diamond face button layout was a gimmick that EVERY console now uses. The Nintendo 64’s analog stick was a gimmick to get people to play 3D games. It’s rumble was a gimmick that no controller now would be complete without. PS1’s Disk Drive was a gimmick that changed gaming from cartridges to disks. Wii’s motion was a gimmick that made many games quite fun, and made shooters actually better. Many games had individual gimmicks, like targeting or camera control, that has shaped modern gaming into what it is. So, saying that the gamepad is a gimmick should actually be taken as a compliment. Especially since the other companies are already making their own answers to the gamepad (PS3/Vita cross-play and 360 Smartglass). If you would support those, then hate on the gamepad, then you are a hypocrite.

      Wii U shall change gaming. If you hate it, then you hate change, which is impossible to prevent. You’ll just waste your breath complaining about it.
      Actually, it already has changed gaming, since the competition is already cashing in on second screen gaming–and it hasn’t even launched yet!

      • JumpMan

        you are my favorite person, @Xblade13! =

        • Xblade13

          Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

          “Truthful statements are much liked but oft ignored, whereas lies are hated, yet the center of attention.”—me ๐Ÿ˜€

    • NesToWiiU

      STOP CALLING EVERY RACING GAME THAT HAS A RELATED LOOK TO MARIO KART MARIO KART! I DOUBT YOU COULD COMPARE MARIO KART TO THIS GAME! Some people just don’t know not every game focused on a genre is a rip-off of something Mario related.

    • HomelessKids

      Alright nintedward, your were okay in the beginning but now your being completely childish, I even wonder how you even got girlfriends . And for John Carlos , quit talking about the wii u it gets so much hype for no reason, the launch window doesn’t even include halo 4 nuff said

      • Xblade13

        Of course it doesn’t include Halo 4, that’s a 360 IP! Does that automatically mean the PS4’s launch will be bad, because it doesn’t have Halo? And if you’re talking about graphics quality, launch games NEVER show off the true power of the system. Look back at the launch of the 360, then tell me with a straight face that those were the best looking games on the system. I didn’t think so.
        Wii U will be fine without Halo 4. I have a 360 to play it on, so it’s no big deal. It’s about the only 360 IP that I look forward to playing.

  • BananaPwnz

    Meh, this isn’t going to be nearly as good as the hopefully upcoming mario kart game

  • DarkPhazon_Qc

    Awesome this game seriously oh plz shut up and my money!!!

    Question? anyone thinking metal sonic will be in the wii u? (look at end)

  • Tobbe

    Good game for my k7ds

  • Superobed

    Looks good but a third party racer is never as good as a first party mario kart.

  • imgoingtobuythewiiU

    this looks so cool , I AM SO PSYCHED FOR THE WII U!

  • LogicalDude

    I’ve played the one they released for the Wii and had quite a bit of fun with that. Who’s that Viking fellow?

    • Nintenlord

      He is from golden axe

  • 30yearsofnintendogaming

    seems pretty cool. so im getting both mariokart u (or whatever its called) an sega racing. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • JumpMan

      Mario Kart Double Dash U? ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Lamsaturn

    I think this game is going to be rather underrated, it looks like a very good kart racer. Day one for me.

    • NintendoYOU

      I agree. iI played the first one and enjoyed it so much i finished it 100%. I’m super stoked for this. people just need to give it a chance and stop complaining that Mario kart is better. They don’t even have any screenshots or footage yet. So it’s only speculation…
      I’m not even sure if they have announced it yet

  • The Wolfen

    This game looks awesome.

    • 007 1/2

      r u the wolfen101 on youtube???? with all of the goldenye videos?

  • Jc

    They should make a spin off racing cars game with mario and sonic ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Master Awesomeness

      Thats my idea!

    • Crapcake

      why not? they already did mario and sonic olympics. they should also make a mario sonic platformer in 3d.

      • u mad bro FC: 0559-7101-5495

        As much as I want to Mario and Sonic together in Mariokart I just don’t see it happening. Come on it’s MARIOKART not MARIO AND SONIC KART although it does have a ring to it. Mariokart is only for Nintendo’s first party characters otherwise adding third party characters will lose focus somehow to players and Mariokart will never be the same. Sorry to burst your bubble comrades. That is all fellow Nintendo fanatics.

        • u mad bro FC: 0559-7101-5495

          I’m sorry…you guys meant that Mario and Sonic should race in SPINOFFS not in Mariokart. I read your comments too fast.

  • NoPUNintendo

    It’s not to bad looking actually. I’m not going to buy it day one, but I’ll consider buying it after I watch some other people play it.

  • Maverick-Hunter

    Hahaha need for speed can go suck it

  • Owen

    Just bring the Chao pets back. That’s all we sonic fans want, along with a REAL sonic adventure 3.

    • WiiU4Me

      F’n this! I was obsessed with the Chaos.

    • NintendoYOU

      I’ll agree with you on Sonic Adventure 3 cause it NEEDS to happen but ill never agree on chao’s i hated those little guys. Forcing me to raise them so i could get my greenhillzone remake… little jerks

    • Castamere

      Speak for yourself. The Adventure games were entertaining, but they really destroyed Sonic the Hedgehog. What fans really would like is a Sonic & Knuckles 2.

      • NintendoYOU

        As awesome as that would be, it basically already exists. If you are craving a new 2D Sonic plat-former, then i Suggest you look into playing Sonic the hedgehog 4 episodes 1&2 they are a Direct sequel to Sonic 3 & Knuckles anyway…

  • Master Awesomeness

    There is only 2 racing games i want for launch. Mario Kart and NFS:Most Wanted. I won’t think about buying this since MK is so much better. And Most Wanted, that’s just gonna be a helluva awesome game.

  • Gamechemist8

    Sonic has always looked great, it’s just that Mario Kart has always had way better gameplay. I won’t judge this game, but I’m definitly gonna get Mario Kart 8 or U or whatever they call it before I get this

  • Swic11

    I was told by a guy at GameStop that sonic all star racing is better than mariokart, couldn’t believe him, still can’t after seeing this, so I will be buying Mario kart when it comes out, sorry sega

    • ssb4 FC3007 8585 6950

      so true MK is much better than any sega racing game. Sorry Sonic, but everone loves the classic plumber and the lean mean green machine.

  • bob

    From what I’ve seen of this game on wii u, the frame rate is lowsy. It was sub 30 the entire time and struggling to keep up. I’ll need to see a reliable demo to consider buying this title

    • NinTobias

      Hopefully it’s because it’s still in development. I’m sure we won’t see that in the final thing-probz 1080p 60fps

    • Nintedward .

      Sumo digital confirmed recently that the demo was an early version of the game for wiiu . And that since the wiiu version has the bst framerate out of all the consoles , second to only the pc version…

      • Neonridr

        it’s true, there was an article recently that said they cleaned up the framerate issues on the Wii U and now it is the fastest next to the PC.

      • Charlies Angels

        Thats a lie , Wii U will run on 10-15 fps, please list a source instead of saying obsurd stuff.

        • Nintedward .

          10-15 fps , are you insane or trolling ??? I CANNOT BE BOTHERED , digging through heaps of internet to prove a MORON like yourself .

          STEVE LYCETT OF SUMO DIGITAL – confirmed on twitter about a week and a half ago that the wiiu version has the best framerate out of ALL the consoles on the market second only to the PC .

          STEVE LYCETT also confirmed about a month back , that the wiiu version has the best graphics out of ALL of the consoles , saying the ”the wiiu has way way more memory than other HD consoles , so we were able to do less compression on elements and textures , The wiiu version will look all lovely and shiny compared to other platform” .

          You fail . NO GAME on wiiu will run at 10-15 fps you retard . 30fps minimum , 45-60fps common , most games are reported to be running at this speed , some of which full 1080p HD .

          • Nerd Hunter

            Are you serious right now nintedward? Quit trolling and we all know that nothing can run at 40 fps… trust me, I play minecraft on my very powerful computer and it runs 4-6 fps. Get your sources right before you complain… grow up kid.

  • Here’s Why

    You people are ridiculous.

    1. Stop comparing this game to Mario Kart.

    2. Stop saying that Mario Kart U will be better when THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS OF NOW.

    3. Compliment the game. You people may not be Sonic or SEGA fans, but this game is pure candy to SEGA fans. I mean, we’ve got Gilius Thunderhead, NiGHTS, Jet Set Radio’s Beat, Ulala, Sonic, Aiai, and many more, all in one game.

    You people are mostly Nintendo/Mario Kart fans, but don’t judge or compare this game to Mario Kart please. Don’t become like the comments section of MyNintendoNews. We’re better than that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • ssb4 FC3007 8585 6950

      Ok. But don’t bring up MyNintendoNews. That place is AWFUL!

  • SteampunkJedi

    This looks awesome, but I like Mariokart’s quirkiness. I’ll get it if the reviews are very good.

  • Sethlaw225

    Can you say diddy kong racing Remake with sega characters .

  • Nintyfan FC:166-4211-8833

    Anyone up more MK7 3DS right now? :0 Open for adds xD

  • LazerK

    I still question the point of having Sonic drive a car…
    But what the hey,the more games the merrier

    • Xblade13

      Especially since he could probably run faster than the car he’s in.
      It still looks like a fun game, though. I played the first on my bro’s PS3, can’t wait to play this!

      I wonder if they made the gamepad a steering wheel for the game, or if it’s just stick controls.

    • Castamere

      It’s a kart racing game. It wouldn’t be a kart racing game if, you know, they all weren’t driving karts.

  • mdog

    come on get some goog information

  • mdog


  • Dan7el(WiiU day one purchase)

    Wait… I can race as a monkey from super monkey ball i heard… I’m in. I don’t think my real wish will ever be granted though… an hd super monkey ball game that loses the silly graphics and goes back to what actually made it awesome… more like the gamecube games(1 and 2) those games were absolutely killer. Ugh I would so buy that. No more gimmicky selling points. I want super monkey balls 3. Please please…

  • Amherst

    Still on the fence about this title, but the trailer definitely has me intrigued. May end up picking this game up a bit down the line.

  • Josh

    I thought that Nintendo was going after the hard-core gamer this time? It does not look like it. Are they going to pay for exclusive rights to GTA 5?

    • SteampunkJedi

      They are going after everyone, “hard-core” and casual. There’s nothing wrong with that. And I doubt there will be GTA 5 on the Wii U, but I would like it if there was. But it will definitely not be exclusive to Wii U, I can tell you that much.


    I dont know why everyone so tense on this game. It’s extremely fun. I play both mario kart and sega allstar racing and no offense to anyone but i really felt this was way better than mario kart. the game is awesome ๐Ÿ™ why no love it?

  • Gano

    The blurb at the end of the trailer shows that the game is for everything except Wii U. I know it’s coming to Wii U but this is not the trailer for the Wii U version. At a guess the graphics are from the xbox 360 version.
    Yeah I got the first sonic racing game and went through all the tracks once and never picked it up again. Was very disappointed with my purchase and am unlikely to risk it again unless Sega can prove to me they have fixed their level design and control issues.

  • Shane

    It looks ok. I’m not going to get it, but I hope every one that gets it does! Sega should just make the new F-Zero game like they did for GCN, so I will be happy again… ๐Ÿ™ haha. Seriously though, that was the BEST F-ZERO EVER, in my honest opinion. You could tell it used Monkey Ball’s engine, and they pulled it off extremely well. Or at least one of their games. Nintendo might not want anyone else to make F-Zero this time, because it’s been so long since their last one. Mr. EAD is waiting for you EAD!

    Nintendo should find other developers to make their new games. At least in some cases like, because it would give Nintendo more time to make other new IPs, or focus more strongly on other games, like a new Super Mario Galaxy or something of that nature. They could buy some time using this strategy…

    • NintendoYOU

      I miss RARE ๐Ÿ™

  • NinTobias

    Looks great-it will hold up until Mario Kart Wii U. But even then-it will still be played by me as well, because it looks quite different, in that all the tracks are a proper blend of land water and air. BTW, has anybody seen some of the gameplay? It’s almost like there are three different races merged into one!
    But I’m an obsessive kart racer fanatic, so any MK, SAASR etc game will get me pumped

  • Smitty

    Am i missing something, the footage is not from any particular console, and at the end there isnt even a WiiU case showing it will be available. So the title is very misleading, it isnt a WiiU trailer at all, its just a game trailer…

    Now taking EVERYTHING i view on this site with a massive bag of salt!!!

  • WiiUGamer#20

    Manโ€ im a big Mario Kart Fan/ A bit of a sonic fan and man does this game look awesome!

    Can’t wait to play this game!

  • Robert

    Imagine Mario Kart with online and leaderboards.

  • relo

    Time to cry about the death of the dreamcast in racing form… (especially the non finalization of the shenmue series and no part 3 for space channel 5)

  • marioU

    Apparently SEGA developed the multi terrain system before Nintendo announced it was in Mario Kart 7.

  • kingtendo

    i need to get 4 fearless pro controller’s for the NEXT mario cart game.

    wounder if you can use 2 fearless game pad’s for the next mario cart game.
