Taking players to Sochi, Russia, host city of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games invites players of all abilities and ages to compete in classic disciplines such as Speed Skating and Alpine Skiing from today. For all skaters and boarders alike, Figure Skating Pairs, Snowboard Parallel Giant Slalom and Snowboard Slopestyle are introduced for the first time in the Mario & Sonic series, with the latter event due to make its debut at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
Alongside the Olympic Events, the Dream Events featured in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games allow players to perform dynamic moves not possible in real life. In the adrenaline-fuelled Winter Sports Champion Race, prepare to hop from a pair of skis onto a snowboard, from the inside of a bobsleigh to a pair of skates, in an environment befitting of the diverse blend of winter sports packed into this single event. For an alternative take on a winter sport, Snowball Scrimmage allows you to take part in the ultimate snowball fight, while in Snow Day Street Hockey, you’ll experience the sport of Ice Hockey like you’ve never seen before.
With members of both the Mushroom Kingdom and Sonic Universe competing in sixteen Olympic Events and eight Dream Events, plus a variety of new game modes including Worldwide VS, which character will you choose to play as in the quest for glory? Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games is available for Wii U now, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest Wii U releases.
