2014 Sochi Olympics: Nintendo to Make Winter Olympics Video Game


In the past, the folks at Nintendo have created an entertaining video game that focuses around the Olympics and the upcoming games will be no different. During a Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo Global president Satoru Itawa announced that the company would be producing a Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games game.

The game will be developed for the new Wii U.

“The graphics are enhanced in comparison to earlier games in the series,” Itawa said. “The characters are detailed and environment effects such as snow and ice are realistically presented. In addition to returning events such as skiing and snowboarding, we have added figure skating pairs, and an event that is new for the 2014 Sochi WInter Games: snowboarding slopestyle.”

There is also events for curling, ice hockey, downhill, ski jump, speed skating and the biathlon.

If you have ever taken the time to watch the Olympics, which I am sure you all have, you know how addicting and awesome curling can be. When you combine curling with the characters from Mario and Sonic, you have an epic level of entertainment in the palm of your hands.

Graphics won’t be the best, but they never are.

This game will focus simply on your ability to not get enough of the Olympic Games.

Watch out, this one seems like it could be addicting.
