Video: Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Slips Into View

Sonic and Peach, Bowser and Doctor Eggman, cats and dogs

While the main event — that we know of — for Nintendo's three game SEGA partnership is undoubtedly Sonic Lost World on Wii U and 3DS, we also have the snappily-titled Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games to look forward to. We don't have a firm release date yet, but it will arrive before the real life event kicks off in Russia on 7th February 2014.

To date it's also only been confirmed for Wii U, as it was when revealed in a Nintendo Direct broadcast and as emphasized at the end of the latest trailer, below; it seems unlikely that the 3DS would be skipped, but so far that seems to be the case. As we'd expect from a new entry in the Mario & Sonic spin-off series, there'll be variations on real sports as well as slightly off-the-wall Dream Events. It also sees characters from both universes mingling freely once again, with this trailer showing Peach figure skating with Sonic and the two big villains sweeping vigorously in a round of Curling.

This one will arrive sometime over the Winter, so will you be hitting the slopes to go and pick it up?
