Nintendo took to Twitter today to announce the release date for Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympics, but curiously enough the announcement was only for the Nintendo 3DS version of the game.


A post on Facebook announcing the Marc 18th release date for the Nintendo 3DS version of the game did mention the Wii U version, but only states that it is coming at a later date, rather than releasing simultaneously. Perhaps Nintendo is waiting until the Olympic games are in full swing to release the title?

Mario and Sonic are back for another round of intense competition in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, launching for Nintendo 3DS on 3/18 and Wii U later this year!
