Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games was announced on Nintendo’s Direct broadcast in May and is set to release exclusively on the Wii U. The game features 16 olympic events such as Skiing, Bobsleighing, Speed Skating, and Curling, as well as a brand new event the Snowboard Slopestyle. The game also features 8 over-the-top “Dream Events” which are just insane.
At Nintendo’s post E3 press event in London I managed to grab a quick hands-on with the game and let me tell you, it’s awesome. I managed to have an attempt at two of the events available in the game, the snowboarding event and the bobsled event, not to blow my own trumpet or anything but I did pretty well in both events and I even beat the bobsleigh record with a score of around 51 seconds – yeah, I’m a boss!
No release date has been announced for Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
