2- Whats in the bonus edition?

3- How do you play with multiple people at home?
Do other people use the wii remote plus like in mario kart?

I played the demo today and had alot of fun with this game, I really enjoy the ability to play in a motion gaming style with the gamepad.

It's a great game-- one of my favorites in that genre that isn't Mario Kart. I don't have the best answers to your questions-- it's been a while since I've played it-- but I'll try to help.

1. Over the holidays and the beginning of the year, there weren't that many people playing online. Given the game's age and that the Wii U's install base hasn't exactly exploded, my guess is that it's pretty quiet online.

2. I'm not completely sure what the bonus edition is, but I think it means you get Metal Sonic and an extra course. That's my memory. I doubt it digitally, though, so I can't confirm this.

3. Your friends can play with pretty much any supported controller-- Wii Remote, Wii Remote + Nunchuck, Wii Remote+Classic Controller, and Wii U Pro Controller.

I imagine the Bonus Edition comes with a few characters already unlocked (probably DLC characters) as well as some GamePad-centric exclusive multiplayer mini-games.

Taken from the back of my game case.

Bonus Edition:
- Outrun Bay Track and Challenges
- Metal Sonic and Mods
- In game stickers


Damn, some of the 4 star challenges on this game are brutal. Traffic Attack made me quit.

All Wii U versions of the game are Bonus Versions as far as I am aware, I have not seen a Standard Edition my entire browsing trips. So just pick up that version for the extra track and character.

You can play up to 5 Players at home, with the 5th player on the Gamepad.

Thank you for the answers.
Does anyone know if people still play this online?

I got all 700 or something stars. I think it took several years off of my life, but I did it. Not as bad as some of the F-Zero GX stuff, but still... Traffic Attack can go **** itself.

I believe a recent patch actually made the traffic attack stages easier.

Wow, seriously? Now my accomplishment has been severely deflated.

Back near the Wii u launch the multiplayer was a barren wasteland. Might be better now but sadly I doubt it.
