Mario & Sonic at the Olympics archery vid

Upcoming Wii title, Mario & 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’s more commonly known, will also be on offer. And we’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’s crosshairs line up with the one projected onto the target. Confused? Don’t be, the video below should help to make things a little clearer.

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.
