Coinciding with the game’s US release today, Nintendo have uploaded a brand new overview trailer for the 3DS version of Mario and Sonic’s latest Olympic crossover. The trailer shows off a selection of the events on offer, from soccer and golf to athletics and gymnastics. There’s also a peek at some of the game’s Dream Events, which add a Mario or Sonic spin on the traditional sports.
Towards the end there’s also an insight into the game’s multiplayer mode and download play, as well as a quick look at the Road to Rio story mode which has your Mii setting off on a journey to compete in the upcoming 2016 Olympic Games. If that’s not enough, you can even use your Mario or Sonic amiibo to temporarily power up your character and give yourself an edge in the stadium!
Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is out now in Japan and America, and will launch in Europe on Friday 8th April. The Wii U version is due for a later release at the end of June.
