Above we have the first video (recorded by Arcade Heroes) from the IAAPA 2015 arcade event showcasing the arcade version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games already translated in full English.
The video shows off the current roster of playable characters which at the moment are your expected norm, being Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Eggman, and Shadow for the Sonic-side. As well as Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Wario, and Yoshi on the Mario-side.
We also have a look at four activities in the game (100m, Archery, Hammer Throw, and Javelin Throw), the same four already known of before in an earlier report (which talked about the controls of each event). Each starts off with a tutorial screen that can be skipped.
There will be two different cabinet releases; one with 4-player support which is shown in the video with the overhead displays and screens, and a 2-player version without the extra displays.
The arcade version actually indeed runs on Sega’s Nu arcade hardware, which is more or less a revision of Ring Edge 2.
The arcade version is set for January or February 2016 in the US. The 3DS version is only scheduled for a February 18 2016 release in Japan, while the Wii U version has no date as of yet.
