Sonic: Lost World features competitive multiplayer, off-screen play on Wii U

Sonic: Lost World will have a few platform-specific distinctions on Wii U and 3DS. The former version will support off-TV play and a "two player support mode," while the 3DS game will include "exclusive Special Stages and Color Powers unique to Nintendo 3DS," according to Sega.

Both versions of Sonic: Lost World will offer competitive multiplayer modes, though Sega has yet to explain them in detail.

Sonic: Lost World will launch on Wii U and 3DS some time later this year as part of a new partnership between Sega and Nintendo.
