Here’s a familiar sight. Nintendo has uploaded to their Play Nintendo YouTube page the first episode of a live-action series of videos about Mario and Sonic training for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The first episode is titled “Training for Rio!”, and it focuses on the 3DS version which released today in North America.
Why is this familiar? You may remember a very similar series of videos of the original game as seen below:
Certainly a bit different in tone from the original Beijing 2008 videos compared to now huh?
No news on how many episodes will be released, but I think it’s a safe assumption that we’ll see more videos later on and also focused on the Wii U version when it releases on June 24th in North America.
In Europe, the 3DS version releases on April 8th and for Wii U on June 24th also.
What do you think of this first episode of this new video series? Let us know in the comments!
