Just an extra $10 for the controller
Already released in Europe, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games arrives in North America on 15th November. Nintendo of America has taken the opportunity to officially confirm the Wii Remote Plus bundle offering in the region, a product that various retailers had listed in recent weeks.
For a recommended price of $59.99 you can get the bundle pictured above, which also includes a blue Remote Plus; alternatively the standalone game with have a cost of $49.99 in stores and on the Wii U eShop. Rather like offers such as those with Wii Party U, Nintendo's aiming to offer attractive prices to enable Wii U owners to build up their collection of controllers.
Nintendo's Scott Moffitt says the following in the PR blurb for the game:
Two of the biggest names in video games are teaming up again for another Olympic Games-sized competition. Everyone in the family will be up off the couch, joining in the fun with all the other Olympic hopefuls.
For our part, we feel this title doesn't hit its potential in our Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games review, despite some good moments and the inclusion of online multiplayer in the series. We did conclude that "there’s still a lot of fun to be had" with a group of friends, however.
