In 2007, after years of barbs and jabs at one another from either side of the 90s Console Wars, celebrated company mascots Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog finally starred in their first crossover game in the aptly titled Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. 2008 marked a brand new start for the Blue Blur in his own games as well, with the release of Sonic Unleashed later that year on several platforms – a game that brought new life to the series with transitional 2D and 3D gameplay and the Boost ability, a mechanic that went on to become a staple in later titles until recently.
For today’s Mash-Up Monday, we reflect on that fresh start out of the dark ages with a musical mash-up befitting that era: the 400m Dash theme from Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games with Bowling for Soup’s “Endless Possibilities” for Sonic Unleashed, put together by Newbiespud on YouTube (and inspired by Whassup86’s earlier rendition)!
