SEGAÂ® Corporation and Nintendo Co. Ltd. today made a historical announcement that two of the biggest icons in the entertainment industry, Marioâ„¢ and Sonicâ„¢, are joining forces to star in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Developed for the Wiiâ„¢ video game system and the Nintendo DSâ„¢ system, this momentous agreement marks the first time these two renowned stars have appeared together in a game.
Published by SEGA across Europe and North America, and published by Nintendo in the Japanese market, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games will be available for Holiday 2007 and is licensed through a worldwide partnership with International Sports Multimedia (ISM), the exclusive interactive entertainment software licensee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
An official Olympics game with Nintendo and SEGA characters sounds like a gold medal idea to me. How can they avoid screwing up this title?
