Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is on track to launch on Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, PS3 and Xbox 360 this November, with a Wii U version’s release date penned into the system’s launch window. However, if you’re after an exclusive track and character, then you may want to pass on the Nintendo platform versions.
Sadly exclusive to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, the bonus edition of the game includes the following:
The exclusive OutRun Bay track contains all the standard race modes found in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, plus challenges and time trials specific to the track.
Sonic the Hedgehog’s popular rival Metal Sonic Mod Pack.
In addition to the track and character, an Emoticon Sticker Pack can also be found in the Bonus Edition. These collectables are found throughout the game and are given as rewards for skilful play, high scores and more.
Does this signify that the Wii U and 3DS versions won’t have DLC (or Add-on Content, as Nintendo calls it), or do you think it’s just a case of SEGA believing there’s not an audience for collector’s editions in Nintendo’s console fanbase? Of course, there was a similar turn of events late last year and earlier this year with Rayman Origins for Wii and 3DS respectively.
