[Update] Nintendo reveals Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games
I know the ski race segment is a complete copy of mario kart with the same items, stage design and everything. Why not have a game just based around that. That would actually be fun.
Sorry man, it was a reference to a Game Theory episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKW7cZ9WCFk
I think this is a terrible move for both Nintendo and Sega, not for making a party game, but for having their mascots associated with the Sochi games. Russia are clamping down on homosexuality in a nazi like manner, even going as far to say they would give the same treatment to homosexual athletes and spectators. This is not something Nintendo and Sega should be promoting.
JxL, colour me dissapointed. All your other Anti-Nintendo comments were at least coherent and kind of made sense.
They sell in the millions. They don't review well but they sell millions of copies and are easy and cheap to make. Nintendo has some very select "cash grab" titles and then they have their regular, high quality, "maintain brand image but also sell a lot" games like the main Mario and Zelda games. The olympics games almost outsold Skyward sword with only about a couple hundred thousand units sold difference.
Makes perfect sense as all the evidence points to Mario being a communist.
Haven't they learned that these games keep bombing more than the previous?
What a cash grab...Why not shake it up and give us "Sonic and Mario at the Syrian Uprising"?
Nintendo should have made rainbow colored suits for all the characters and then see if it gets pulled from Russia. =P
While I enjoy this series, I find it very odd that neither Nintendo or Sega has put much effort into advertising this. Iwata quickly announced it in the May Nintendo Direct and then no one made a peep about it for the longest time, not even at E3. I think it's because simply having both Mario and Sonic on the box cover is enough to break even.
Nah, it isn't friendship-breaking enough for After Dark. We need something else.
You know, THIS should be the next After Dark game series.
AAAAAAAAAND nobody cares.
