Sega and Nintendo have released the box art for Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Both Mario and Sonic feature prominently, but Peach and Knuckles also make an appearance on the box. It’s strange that in the Year of Luigi, Nintendo decided not to promote him in any way even on the box art, despite being a playable character. Will you be picking up this game? You can check out the most recent trailer for the game below. local_offer Nintendo SEGA wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo: Switch owners can expect more suppo Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Clel Dang, I had totally forgotten about this game. Not sure about this one, considering it comes out in 2014 alongside Smash Bros and Mario Kart :O Ashley King Well, it’s called the 2014 games, but it’ll be out in November. Zorpix SCANDAL! ludist210 Phht. Every Madden game comes out in August the year before. No biggie. 😛 Zorpix dont even get me started on cars Mario They did that with all the Mario and Sonic olympic games. jay I think this one will be motionplus compatible, It’s gonna be EPIC! Fred Why does everyone forget about what I think will be the 2014 game of the year…X? Clel Because Monolith’s not advertising it and refreshing it in our minds so, we forget about it. Lusunup I haven’t forgotten at all! Fred I agree. I’ve been playing through Xenoblade grinning in anticipation for X Zorpix I had the first one, and I have to say it was an okay minigame collection, but nothing to really warrant two sequels -.- or however many there are. jay Never played the original but the Winter one with the balance board was way too much fun. Christopher Acuna Would rather this be another Mario Party game….love me some Mario Party. Josiah Parsons The 3v1 games would be Epic! dave-id 4v1… WII U FOR THE WIN! Josiah Parsons True! MarioParty seems made for the Wii U. I just wonder why they haven’t announced it yet. Magnus Eriksson Mario Party 8 sucked big time. I hated it, took way to long and most of the minigames wasnt fun at all really. So we boycotted MP9 all together. Zorpix hey now, MP9 is my fave palomino blue Ice at Delfino. Really? Lusunup Nothing new much for me since I already saw this box art in gamestop. Also I will not be picking this up since I’ve played the first and seccond installment, Im not taking anymore chances with this.. Διονύς84 I’d only buy it if it cost 15$ Mark The game looks cool. I may pick it up, but it’ll probably be near the bottom of list of games I want this Fall/Holiday season. Ducked Same here, it’ll be cool to have. But there’s to many good games coming out. SuperSonicBrawler Yeaaa, no. Notify me when SEGA and Nintendo decide to do a crossover that doesn’t rely on the stupid Olympics. Zorpix but it’s the OFFICIAL game of the olympics SuperSonicBrawler I’ve never even cared about the OFFICIAL Olympics. Why should I care about a game that’s butchering two of my favorite video game characters? Ducked You don’t care about the olympics? Whaaaaat? Zorpix sarcasm Javy G Just dreaming here…but instead of just Lost World for Sonic it should of been crossed-over with Mario Galaxy! Imagine all the enemies and power-ups with very interesting worlds! Ducked Hasn’t this box art been out for like 2 weeks… Tim van Broekhoven Epic jay HELL YEAH!!! Forgot all about this game!!! To the hardcores complaining: This game is a system seller. Can’t complain about this game and the lack of system sellers at the same time. Fred This certainly wasn’t on my radar. My plan was Rayman Legends and Mario 3D World for sure with W101, WW, and DKCTF as possibilities, but I will certainly consider this one Christopher Acuna same here, sans Rayman Legends. I will be bypassing that one for Watch Dogs(WiiU) Fred Don’t skip Rayman, you’ll really miss out Christopher Acuna my wallet begs to differ. Magnus Eriksson Ill definitly get it for my kids. Sounds like a fun family game. Christopher Acuna This game makes me sad. Wasted resources IMO. ezquimacore I want mario and sonic adventures of the mushroom kingdom. therealruben1 These games are fun,but what i really want is a mario and sonic 2D side scrolling platformer! Entropyguy Certainly not. I’m kind of boycotting this particular Olympics. Wayne Beck These games are always fun, but they are not the kind of game I just have to get my hands on. bizzy gie This shouldn’t be apart of the Nintendo/Sega exclusivity deal. This would be exclusive even if they never came to an agreement. Cutcopy too bad Birdo can’t be in the game. Because Birdo’s transsexual. And the 2014 Olympics are in Russia. palomino blue Something about mixing these characters makes me feel really uncomfortable. Looks fun though. majora :D I hope this game doesn’t turns in to Fifa, making lame versions each two years SuperSonicBrawler Too late. Gecko Altair WindWaker HD release date revealed! http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/08/the_legend_of_zelda_the_wind_waker_hd_confirmed_for_4th_october_in_north_america Mochlum Late much? This game looks alright, and that boxart is nice. I may get it sometime. But would it kill them to add more expression instead of making them so… stiff? Mochlum And people need to realize how big this game IS for the Wii U. They’re obviously gonna advertise this during the Winter Olympics (like last time), which are internationally watched, so it’d be a great way to show off the Wii U name. iamserious Sonic for SSBU would be nice!
