Out Today in Europe
The second major Sonic game for the Holidays and the second of three Nintendo exclusive Sonic titles was released in Europe today. Mario and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games is available to purchase at stores and digitally. Next week, the Wii U exclusive will come to North America.
A launch trailer was produced by Nintendo to mark the occasion. It shows off a wide variety of the game’s events. You can watch it below.
The Mario and Sonic franchise tends to do well short and long term, but this edition has been met with lukewarm to mediocre reviews, and that could have an impact. If it does succeed, the trick will be to see if it can help boost awareness and sales of Sonic Lost World. If it does not succeed, Sega and Nintendo will have a lot to think about after the Holidays. No matter what, we will bring you the official GFK ranks when they come in on Monday.
