    Mario and Sonic are together at last!

    UK, March 28, 2007 - Finally the dreams of SEGA and Nintendo fans come true as news hits thats Mario and Sonic are set to star side by side in a new game for Wii and DS, based on the 2008 Olmypics.

    SEGA made the historic announcement this morning and confirmed that Mario & Sonic at the Olympics (as it's known) is due for release this Christmas. The game's currently in development by SEGA Japan and Shigeru Miyamoto is supervising the project.

    Players compete in events around venues based on official locations for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Featuring a supporting cast of recognisable faces from the world of both Sonic and Mario, players can choose from a range of characters including Luigi, Knuckles, Yoshi, Tails and more.



    It might not be Smash Bros. but at least they're together now.

    Innovative use of the Wii and DS control systems are promised, enabling players to race down the 100m track, participate in exhilarating table tennis rallies and churn water in swimming heats to compete for the gold medal.

    "Mario and Sonic have been respectful rivals since the early days of video games," said Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto. "In fact, for a long time they have been discussing the possibility of one day competing against each other. Now that they have been given the perfect opportunity to meet at the Olympic Games, we may finally learn who is actually faster, Mario or Sonic?"

    "We are thrilled to partner with Nintendo and ISM on this groundbreaking title," said Hisao Oguchi, president and chief operating officer, SEGA. "For the first time, two of the world's greatest games' characters come together to compete in the world's greatest sporting event and we couldn't be more excited."

    "The Olympic Games represent the true spirit of competition and passion," said Raymond Goldsmith, chairman and chief executive officer of ISM. "Bringing together intensely competitive and fun characters like Mario and Sonic in an Olympic setting helps showcase the sports of the Olympic Games in a new and compelling way for all generations."

    OMFG

    This one piece of news reveals so much about the future relationship of Nintendo/Sega...

    Thx for this.

    Just for you doubters, it's from IGN quoting the presidents of both companies....don't think they're just pulling a fast one.

    i know, i trust IGN, but they have pulled our leg before... EGM does it all the time. Remember a few years ago they said Miymoto stated that they will be releasing an updated version of windwaker with awesome graphics?

    Heh, ya. I guess you could say that....this is either going to be a major hit or major shit; take or leave it. It's not gonna be a sorta in the middle game, it'll either be or

    It could have easily been photoshopped but I am going to think it's not because that would be awesome

    Oh yes this one bit of news will make all the people with hard ons for Sonic that much more convinced that hes in the game....it'll be a very sad day indeed when they confirm that Sonic is in the game (that is IF). As for this Holiday game I think it will be a big sucess and if speaks VOLUMES about Sega and Nintendo's relationship. Do you guys now think Sega is moving into 2nd Party Developer status? I think thats what they should do if they're smart and it would be a great relationship as long as Sega keeps putting out a variety of games for the Wii and NOT just Sonic titles cuz that would get boring after a while.
