Sonic: Lost World includes two-player support and GamePad play on Wii U, exclusive stages on 3DS

Sonic: Lost World, Sega's Nintendo-exclusive platformer set for release this year, will include two-player and GamePad play support on the Wii U and exclusive levels and moves on the Nintendo 3DS, according to a post on the Sega Blog.

In the game, Sonic must face the Deadly Six, a group of bad guys assembled by Dr. Eggman but now in revolt against their master. To defeat them, Sonic will team up with his "arch nemesis" and comes equipped with new parkour moves and Color Powers, which have allowed Sega's blue mascot to transform into lasers and drills in previous games.

Both the Wii U and 3DS versions will feature single player and competitive multiplayer modes. The Wii U version will also come with two-player support and enable you to play on the GamePad alone, while the 3DS version will ship with Special Stages and Color Powers unique to the handheld version. To see Sonic in action, be sure to watch the recent Sonic: Lost World trailer.

Nintendo revealed Sonic: Lost World during a Nintendo Direct broadcast earlier this month. The game is part of a partnership between Nintendo and Sega which will span three games, including Mario and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games and an unannounced title.
