New Mario & Sonic 2014 Screenshots


Whether you love it or loathe it, the Mario & Sonic series of Olympic-themed games is set to continue later this year with Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games set in Russia – and because it’s E3 this week, there’s a load of new screenshots! Be sure to check them out in the gallery below.

Additionally, there’s a few tidbits of information about the game from a PR e-mail posted on the GoNintendo website. No exact release date has been set yet, but we can expect to find out when the unlikely duo will be skating their way onto Wii U in due course.

Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games: The game includes a variety of events from the Winter Games, including bobsleigh, skiing, figure skating pairs and snowboard slopestyle – which will make its Olympic Games debut in Sochi, Russia. Different events might use the Wii Remote Plus controller, Wii U GamePad controller or both. In addition to realistic events, the game also includes Dream Events set in the worlds of Sonic and Mario that let players perform moves not possible in real life. Launch details and timing will be announced at a later date.

  1. I’ve never been a huge fan of the Olympic titles, but I’d be lying if I said that this game didn’t look gorgeous. I’ll most likely pick this game up!

  2. I don’t know about you guys, but the first thing I thought when I saw those images was: Since when was a Mario available for Xbox 360 and PS3?
    Hurray for HD XD

  3. “Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games”

    Damn, that’s one long title.

    1. wii u most likely 2013. 3DS most likely 2014. (how it worked for the other games)

  4. Anyone Still holding onto the hopes that Sonic will make it to Smash bros along with Megaman?

    1. I am hoping with all my might Sonic will be in the next Smash Bros. but I don’t think it is likely sadly. 🙁 BUT YOU NEVER KNOW! 😀

  5. I think Sonic is in Super smash bros for wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Then I hope Sonic and MegaMan are both playable characters like Sonic and MegaMan comic books of big blue are both heroes.

    1. Indeed! Since Sonic and Megaman are currently in the crossover together, it would make sense if they both arrived in the next Smash bros.!

      1. Megaman has been confirmed with 2 new characters that I can’t help but facepalm at. As for Sonic…who knows?

  6. Anyone else hope for new characters this time?(A.K.A. the Rival characters being actually playable instead of the Mii costumes.)
