Upcoming Wii title, Mario %26amp; Sonic at the Olympic Games, will pit the two gaming superstars, along with some of their friends, against one another in a number of events ranging from hammer throwing to swimming.

A gold medal in the art of projecting a pointy stick towards a multi-coloured circle of hay, or Archery as it%26rsquo;s more commonly known, will also be on offer. And we%26rsquo;ve filmed Luigi getting some practice in before the main event.

Much like the control system implemented in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, you ready your bow by pulling back on the Wii-mote, only this time you aim with the Nunchuk, making sure your bow%26rsquo;s crosshairs line up with the one projected onto the target. Confused? Don%26rsquo;t be, the video below should help to make things a little clearer.
