The number of 3DS retail titles with solid release dates for Europe is relatively thin, but we can now take Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games off the list. As continues to be the case it's the 3DS version that's coming first, with the Wii U iteration yet to be dated.

It's heading to Europe on 8th April, which means it's lagging a little behind the North American arrival (18th March) in the sprint to stores.

The Mario & Sonic Olympics series has clearly been popular for a number of iterations, and it'll be interesting to see how well this one does at retail. It has a whole load of minigames - including Olympics newcomers like Rugby and Golf - along with multiplayer and some amiibo support. The Japanese trailer below has plenty of footage.

Are you going to be on the starting blocks to pick this up?
