First trailer of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

Mario must have been working on his running skills, because now it seems he can keep up with Sonic the lighting fast hedgehog.And we have the video evidence to prove it. Look below to see the iconic duo holding their respective flags aloft as they enter the Beijing Stadium each followed by an entourage of recognizable characters who will also be competing thiswinter when Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games is released for Wii and DS.

Although no other events apart from a flat-out raceare shown in the video, we’re predicting all of the official Olympic events will be present and correct, possibly with a few extras thrown in for good measure.But if Sonic ever loses the 100m sprint to the tubby Italian plumber we'll eat our running shoes.

James Jarvis
Executive Producer, GR Video

Hi I'm James or JJ if you like, I'll answer to both. I'm the Executive producer for GR video which means I've had at least a part in all the hot moving pictures you'll find on the site (even if that part was just saying, yes that's a good video). I also produce the Future Games Show and Golden Joystick Awards. Away from the office you'll either find me playing Fortnite, or walking my dog. I'm better at one than the other, I'll let you decide which.
