YokimaSun writes "SEGA. and Nintendo today made a historical announcement that two of the biggest
icons in the entertainment industry, Mario and Sonic, are joining forces to star
& Sonic at the Olympic Games. 'In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic
Games, players will compete in events that take place in environments based on
the official venues of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Using a supporting cast
of characters from the amazing worlds of both Mario and Sonic, gamers will be
able to compete as or against a range of lovable personalities including Mario,
Sonic, Luigi, Knuckles, Yoshi, Tails and more. Innovative
usage of the Wii and DS control systems to maneuver a favourite character will
allow players to race the likes of Mario and Sonic down the 100m track, engage
in exhilarating rallies in table tennis and churn water in a swimming heat, all
while competing for the much sought after gold medal.'"
Has to be better than the usual Olympic Game titles, which have been categorically awful.
