Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed should be patched by UK launch



A patch for the Wii U version of Sonic & All-stars Racing Transformed should arrive in time for the UK launch.

Users have been having issues with the Boost Challenge and Ninja Tag features which were introduced in the first patch, however Sumo Digital?s Steve Lycett confirmed on NeoGAF that the latest patch has been submitted to Nintendo, meaning it should be ready by the time the game launches in the UK on Friday.

Thanks, GoNintendo.

Wasn't one of the big things that developers were happy about was that Nintendo aren't charging them for patching?

In my opinion Kelly, I'd expect more issues with a new system as it's new hardware. Developers aren't use to it. Whereas the PS3 and 360 have been out several years, developers know them inside out, and yet still problems persist.

to be fair though they need to start charging more to developers for large patches like those seen with medal of honor that game wasnt finished and it really has hurt its sales likewise with fifa that ended up on watchdog games should be complete and only minor suprise issues should be patched

Yeah, definitely should be just minor issues that need patching. I guess it's a 50-50 in a way in regards to online being a massive part of gaming nowadays.

Last gen, when online wasn't prominent and the PS2 didn't have a hard drive, patches weren't really possible. Whereas nowadays the majority have online and games can be patched.

New consoles usually have the odd bug needing fixed, but at least it'll all be sorted soon. Nintendo are reliable in this aspect.

What respect? Patching problems with their consoles? Are you joking?

The first Nintendo console to have patching ability at launch and already most of the games launched with it have needed them.

All games get patched on first play.

No they don't.

There is a feeling that this is true; slot a game in and wait for the obligatory download boxes to pop-up before you get a chance to play your new game. I know, psychologically, it's always a comforting experience to just put a new game on and get straight into it, though.
