Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games to Slide Down With a 30% Discount in Europe
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
A 'cool' offer on the eShop? (We're so sorry)
The snappily titled Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games may have been released on the Wii U last year, but the actual event it's licensed for is only now getting ready to kick off. To celebrate Nintendo of Europe is running a 30% discount on the Wii U eShop from tomorrow (7th February) until 23:59 on 9th February.
No actual prices are given, so with the power of mathematics we can say it should be £28 / €35, reduced from £39.99 / €49.99.
It's the latest in the popular sub-series in which the former foes team up, and includes standard events from the Winter Olympics, Dream Events that add a little videogame craziness, and some online play for those that are particularly competitive; it utilises both GamePad and Wii Remote controls depending on the events.
We rated this one as "not bad" in our Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games review, awarding 6/10 while highlighting that it's a fun multiplayer experience, in particular, if not quite fulfilling its potential.
Have you been on the fence with this one, and does this offer tempt you to take to the slopes? Let us know in the comments below, and we'll keep an eye out for an equivalent offer in North America.
