All Stars Racing Wii U frame rate issues fixed, says Sumo Digital

If anything, the Wii U version is now the closest to the target frame rate, well discounting the PC version that is.

Those are the words from Sumo Digital’s Steve Lycett, who took to the SEGA forums to quell doubts about the reportedly sluggish framerate in the Wii U version of SEGA’s hotly anticipated racer.

With Sumo Digital’s assurance that this potentially crippling issue has been fixed, is anyone planning on picking up the Wii U version?

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Arcade machine spotted in the wild

Seems that the previously reported rumor of SASASR receiving an arcade version was legit! From the website Arcade Heroes comes photos and a few details about the racing cabinet, officially titled Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Arcade. The machine(s) were spotted at a Chuck E. Cheese in Skokie, IL. The tipster noted that the seats and sides of the cabinet change color. The startup mentions Sumo Digital as the developer and the game retains power-ups and boosting. The game features three modes: Time Trial, Quick Race and Grand Prix. Also, the game is running on the Ringwide hardware. No mention of the roster, but I assume it has exactly what the console versions have. I wonder if Metal Sonic also appears?
