Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Confirmed for Wii, 3DSby Tristan Oliver April 20, 2011
Press Release Affirms 3rd Collab in Development
We showed you the early box art last week, and now it’s official: the 3rd major partnership between Mario and Sonic–and therefore Sega and Nintendo–will be another one of Olympic proportions.
Such news was made clear when a Czech article announcing Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games for both the Nintendo Wii and the 3DS was found by The Sonic Stadium. Given recent rumors about the Wii’s successor on the way, this may be one of the last Sonic games for the system and that it will be out for the Holiday season this year, well ahead of the actual 2012 Olympic Games in London. It also means we may now know what the 3DS specific Sonic title is.
The translation is rough, but the piece states the new game will include new sports to play, such as soccer. The 3DS edition is also said to include a new control mechanism.
We will post the proper press release once made available in English, which we suspect will be very soon, if not Thursday. Stay with TSSZ for more as this busy news week gets even busier.
