Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics!
7/13/2009 5:43:00 PM
This snowy sequel to Mario and Sonic Olympics
has just been slated for release on October 13th of this year. As someone who appreciates the Sonic Universe, and an all-time fan of Mario, this game can be easily appreciated by anyone who loves either saga. With yet another promising title coming to the Wii and DS, the two systems have proved to be worthy successors in to the previous Nintendo systems, carying the torch for even more instant-classic games.
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games™ will officially be in
stores on October 13th for both Wii™ and Nintendo DS™. This epic
rivalry will be heading to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games to
compete in some bone-chilling ice and snow competitions including
snowboard cross, alpine skiing, figure skating, bobsleigh and ice
hockey. Players can choose their favorite Mario and Sonic characters,
and compete in both single and multiplayer competitive & co-op modes
(multi-player co-op mode is only available on Wii). Whether on the
Wii (using the Wii Remote/Nunchuk™ or the Wii Balance Board™) or the
Nintendo DS, fans can look forward to an irresistibly fun game packed
with events and fan-favorite characters.
In honor of this official release date announcement, SEGA is happy to
release the official box art for both the Wii and Nintendo DS versions
of the title. Both can be found on the PR ftp at:
