mariosonic.jpgSega is including twenty events are packed into Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and we know about eighteen of them. The confirmed official Olympic events are:


Fencing – Individual epée


Shooting – Skeet

Gymnastics – Trampoline

Gymnastics – Vault

Field – High Jump

Field – Pole Vault

Field – Long Jump

Field – Triple Jump

Field – Javelin Throw

Field – Hammer Throw

Rowing – Single Sculls

Table Tennis – Singles

Aquatics – 100m Freestyle

Aquatics – 4x100m Freestyle

Track – 110m and 400m Hurdles

Track – 4x100m Relay

Track –100m and 400m


The list looks pretty diverse with swimming, track, rowing and shooting. Fencing is the event that I'm most excited since it seems like a perfect fit with the remote. The other two events are anyone's guess, but I’m hoping for (not counting on) some martial arts action. Motion controlled Judo or Taekwondo would round the list off Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games nicely. Besides the official games there is a quiz mode to test your knowledge of the Olympics and at E3 Sega mentioned they are planning some fantasy events too.

  • Now I just need to see a good winter olympics game so I can play my favorite olympic sport…. curling!

    no, I’m not kidding

  • They should base the quiz around the history of Mario and Sonic rather than the Olympic games. I mean IMO its not the most interesting topic matter although thats what the game is about.
