How The Wii U GamePad Fleshes Out Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

With the Wii U being only a week away from launching, Nintendo and its third-party supporters have ramped up their advertising attempts. Trailers and TV spots for both the console and its first round of titles can easily be found on the Internet, as well as on select broadcast channels.

What we have for you here is SEGA’s Wii U centric trailer for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – a game that will be released on November 18. During its brief run-time, action-packed gameplay is shown, but the highlight is the GamePad controller. Its unique options – including a large mini-map, a way to track fired weapons and motion-controlled gameplay – are all featured prominently within.

If you’re planning to buy both a Wii U and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, then this may be the version to get. From the sounds of things, the only feature it won’t support is voice chat.
