New Mario & Sonic 2014 Olympic Winter Games trailer

Classic and 'Dream' events shown in new movie

Nintendo has released a new trailer for Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.


Announced in May, the game will feature 16 Olympic events including skiing, snowboarding and figure-skating.

Additionally, it'll offer eight over-the-top 'Dream Events' set in the Mushroom Kingdom and Sonic's world, including an ice hockey game on Super Mario Sunshine's Isle Delfino.

Some events make specific use of the Wii U GamePad, such as curling, where the trajectory of the stone is drawn on the controller's touch screen.

As perhaps an indication of the Mario & Sonic game's release, the next Winter Olympics runs from 7 to 23 February 2014, in Sochi Russia, with some events held in the resort town of Krasnaya Polyana.

Mario & Sonic 2014 Olympic Winter Games is the second title in a three-game Sonic deal recently announced by Nintendo and Sega. This October's Wii U and 3DS title Sonic Lost World is the first.
