Nintendo's Mario And Sonic Set To Join The Sochi 2014 Wii Winter Olympic Games

Special to NYSportsJournalism.com

November 12, 2013: Two of the most unusual athletes in Olympic history, Mario and Sonic, will return to action in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, being release this week in anticipation of the 2014 competition in Sochi, Russia.

The game is being released by Nintendo for the Wii U GamePad and Wii Remote Plus. In addition, Nintendo said that for the first time in the Mario & Sonic series, players with a broadband Internet connection "can compete in select events online against other players around the world, earning points for their home countries."

Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games will hit with multi-media marketing, including TV, Internet and social media destinations including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

Among the events featuring Mario, Sonic and friends are snowboarding, speed skating, four-man bobsled, figure skating and snowboard slopestyle, which is making its debut in both the video game and the Winter Olympic Games.

A number of other events not in the real Olympics are part of the video game via a Dream Events platform borrowed from other Mario and Sonic games. These events include extreme actions and power-ups such as Roller Coaster Bobsleigh, Speed Highway and Snow Day Street Hockey.

“Two of the biggest names in video games are teaming up again for another Olympic Games-sized competition,” Scott Moffitt, evp-sales & marketing for Nintendo of America, said in a statement. “Everyone in the family will be up off the couch, joining in the fun with all the other Olympic hopefuls.”

According to Nintendo, "Wii U owners who do not yet own a Wii Remote Plus or just want to add a cool, blue controller to their collections, the Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games bundle with Wii Remote Plus controller can be purchased in stores at a suggested retail price of $59.99. The standalone game can also be purchased in stores or in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U for $49.99."
