SEGA Product Page Update Reveals Story Mode For M&S London 3DS

SEGA has updated their Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games product page with some new information about the game. Most of it we already know on both platforms, but there’s an interesting new detail at the very bottom that reveals a new Story Mode for the Nintendo 3DS version of the game. Like in the Adventure Mode for the Nintendo DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, the game’s cast of characters will face off against Dr.Eggman and Bowser. Unfortunately, no other information about this mode is currently available.

Here’s the full list of information:

  1. when I saw the football mode, I couldn’t help but say to myself “it’s a football, I chisseled it”

  2. I think it should be mentioned that relase date for Wii version has been annouced (dont remember exact date) look at TSSZ news.

    1. Don’t worry. I’m already on top of it. I got a press e-mail from SEGA about it earlier, like I do with all official news 🙂 I just wanted to get this bit out first.

  3. When it comes out in February, I’m gonna have to take a look at the story mode on Youtube before I buy it.

  4. I’m surprised no one’s “corrected” Table Tennis’ name to the “official” name, Wiff-Waff. (Thank you very much, Boris Johnson!)

  5. @Blazecat7tm: I agree. I love the story mode as well. Even though it may not be award winning or something, but I loved the story mode in the Winter Games, especially on how the characters from both franchises were used and its overall simple-ness.

    I am excited for the overall game, though it is a bit sad that the 3DS version is coming out next year, even though it is coming early next year. Still, I cannot wait to pay this game.

    Wii or 3DS, I am gonna enjoy playing as my favorite robot, Metal Sonic! ^_^
