Mario and Sonic get extra friendly in newest London Olympics trailer

As Sesame Street so wisely put it cooperation makes it happen, so as strange as it must be for all the Sonic and Mario fans to see, the upcoming London Olympics game starring the pair has the former rivals working together almost as much as they’re competing. Sure, the two can square-off in sumo wrestling and bicycle races, but they can just as easily work together. In today’s gameplay footage you’ll see them collaborate in sports as diverse as crew, volleyball, and even synchronized swimming.

Though you’d think the novelty of seeing Mario, Sonic and all their friends would wear off by the third game, videos like these still have an effect on us, as we wish our nine year-old selves could see the two platform stars rowing a boat together. And Sega intends shake things up for its third Olympic mascot battle, with new events and even minigames filling the streets of London. You’ll find Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics in stores November 15.
