Mario and Sonic at the Olympic GamesTwo of the biggest names in video games will be coming together again, this time taking their rivalry to the snow and ice in another officially licensed Olympic-themed outing: Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. Heading to stores late in 2009 on the Wii and Nintendo DS, the game will take players to Vancouver, British Columbia, host city of the official 2010 Winter Games. It 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.

Developed by Sega of Japan under the guidance of Super Mario Bros. creator 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. Last year’s Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.

Tailored to the specific system controls, Nintendo DS and Wii gamers will have different experiences thanks to each platform having its own specific gameplay features and modes. The Wii game will offer an even richer multiplayer experience offering co-op and competitive gameplay where the Nintendo DS brings an intense competitive element using the Nintendo DS wireless capabilities. Additionally, one of the new features to be found in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games is the inclusion of the Wii Balance Board (packed with Wii Fit), which can be used in some events featured in the Wii version for a more interactive and athletic experience.
