Online Multiplayer, Release Dates Confirmed
The news continues to flow in from this morning’s Nintendo Direct. In addition to video from Sonic Lost World and the confirmation of Sonic in the next Smash Bros. that we first reported in May, there is also a new trailer to share from Mario and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
This trailer shows off a new Legends Showdown mode, an Action an Answer Tour, and confirms online multiplayer. It’s all accompanied by a moving orchestral soundtrack. Though no release date is seen anywhere in the video, releases from Nintendo after the fact confirm a November 8th release for Europe, and a November 15th release for North America. We have also learned that in some areas, the game will be bundled with a special blue Wiimote.
Check out the new video below. Thanks to AugieD who tipped us on Twitter. Follow us on Twitter for news, commentary, discussion, humor, and bulletins at once.
