Winter Olympics Screen

Back in May, a SEGA-themed Nintendo Direct broadcast revealed Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games, becoming the first Mario & Sonic title on the Wii U and bringing with it a new set of events for Nintendo's current home console.

A release date was yet to be confirmed for Mario and Sonic's upcoming sporting adventure, but a recent Wii U notification indicates that the title will make a chilling appearance on 8th November this year. As the message was sent out to North American Wii U owners, this suggests that the game is only confirmed for that region on this date, as no such notice has been delivered yet — at the time of writing — to European owners.
