Next Mario & Sonic Olympics Game Headed To Wii U

By Ishaan . May 17, 2013 . 7:04am

The next Mario & Sonic Olympics game is in development for Wii U and takes place in Russia. The game will use the Wii Remote Plus controller and features events such as figure skating in addition to returning events such as snowboarding.

 

In other events such as the Biathalon, a combination of skiing and shooting, the player is required to switch between the Wii Remote and the Wii U GamePad controllers.

 

Nintendo did not provide a release date for the game or its title.

    “In other events such as the Biathalon, a combination of skiing and shooting, the player is required to switch between the Wii Remote and the Wii U GamePad controllers.”

    This sounds like a recipe for disaster in a game supposedly aimed at a casual crowd.

    Looks like another game to be skipped for me! You guys enjoy it, though ^_^

    “The next Mario & Sonic Olympics game is in development for Wii U and takes place in Russia.”

    I guess they want the game’s release to coincide with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

    How the Hell is that series still going?
    Don’t tell me that each game sold for 20 millions copies each…

    • Skyer Ist

      Every game in the series sells millions.

      • MrJechgo

        …but their numbers have been dropping after each game, and reviews have been dropping as well…

          Actually, I think the last game only JUST dropped out of the UK top 40 multiplatform chart like last week. No guarantee it won’t just pop back up again like they like to do either.

    Nintendo, this game isn’t going to help you ship Wii U units…

  • Skyer Ist

    I’m from Russia! Yay, It’s so funny to see Sochi Olympics logo in the game, and Sochi written in Russian))) Looks good, maybe I’ll buy it for my Wii U.

  • Guy Wesley

    So the title is supposed to probably be: “Mario and Sonic at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games?” these titles are getting longer.

  • Kaihaku

    I might actually pick up this one…if Wii U Sports isn’t announced by the time it’s out.
