Blue WiFi Connection dot: VERIFIED

We knew that Sonic Colours Wii is going to feature cooperative multiplayer, but an IGN interview with Sonic Team lord Takashi Iizuka has revealed the DS version will also feature multiplayer, either through local wireless play or online via Nintendo WiFi Connection.

As opposed to the Wii version's cooperative play the DS game will include a head-to-head race mode for gamers to face-off wherever they are. Both versions will also feature online leaderboards, enabling you to see how your best times and scores match up against players all over the globe.

Sonic Colours is released in Europe on November 12th, with a North American release following on November 16th.
