Now that we know Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games is finally coming out in November, hot on the heels of Sonic Lost World, we have a brand new set of screenshots to get us all excited. These screens show off quite a few new features of the game, including the return of Miis and some of the Dream Events.
Starting with the screenshot above, we can see that you can once again play as your Mii character and dress them up in whatever way you so choose – there’s regular outfits, hats, and full-blown character costumes to pick from. In terms of character costumes we can see that the game will include costumes of Vector, Birdo, Diddy Kong, Bee Mario, Propeller Mario, and Penguin Mario, and those are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg as this is only one page of 10 being shown. You’ll also be able to get a spooky pumpkin hat to scare your opponents. Will it cause the Pumpkin Hill music to play when you wear it though? That is the real question we all want answered, I’m sure!
This next screenshot shows off one of the new Dream Events in which characters play in teams of two, running around an area and shooting each other with snow. It sounds like a rather interesting concept, and at the very least it shows off some of the new graphical effects that the move to Wii U is bringing to the series.
And finally for now, we have this screenshot…
You can see all of the new screenshots in the gallery below. Thanks to SSMB member YoshiUnity for pointing them out in the forums!
