I was getting worried. The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics are rapidly approaching and I wasn't sure if Mario & Sonic would be going. Thankfully, my question has been answered. The unlikely duo will be going to Vancouver and the game will release late this year.
Developed by SEGA of Japan, under the guidance of Shigeru Miyamoto, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games will take players to lifelike Olympic venues where they can choose from a legendary cast of playable characters, including new faces to the series to be revealed later this year. Following the phenomenal worldwide popularity of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, which has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, this fresh gaming experience will feature completely new Olympic Winter Games events from the official competition schedule including Alpine Skiing and Speed Skating with more events announced throughout the year.
The game will be released on the Nintendo Wii and DS. Personally, I can't wait to be Sonic that competes in Olympic curling in the 'Couv. What about you?
