Did you grow up with Mario or Sonic? Do you enjoy watching the Olympics? Wouldn't it be fun to get ready for the upcoming winter Olympics with the all new Mario & Sonic at the Sochi Winter Olympics games for the Wii U™? I used to love playing Super Mario Brothers with my brother when I was younger. My hubby was a huge Sonic fan. Now my son is into characters from both. I think it would be fun to relive our childhood with our little guy playing this fun-looking new game from Nintendo. He already loves the 2012 version of the London games so I am confident that he will enjoy this one as well.
A new feature that I think will be neat is that you can now compete globally in multiplayer online events- helping your country score the best rankings. There are 24 winter events including figure skating pairs and snowboard slopestyle which makes it's debut in the Sochi, Russia 2014 Winter Olympics. There is the option to play head-to-head or as part of a team. You can chose from some of your favorite characters like Princess Peach and Tails, each of which have their own unique movements and stats.
Sound like fun? I think it will prove to be a great way to get kids excited about the upcoming Olympic games. Which winter sport is your favorite? Would you chose Sonic, Mario, or a different character?
The Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics Games Wii U™ is available at Walmart Stores.
