Next year marks the year of the Olympic Games being held in London in the UK. While this is an exciting time for athletes from all over the world especially the British, thanks to Nintendo it will also be an exciting time for gamers. To commemorate the occasion and the launch of Sega’s new game Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, the company has announced a new blue Wii console bundle to be released next month.
The new bundle which will include both the game and the blue Wii console, as well as one blue Wii controller, will be a limited edition bundle launching across Europe November 18th. The game will feature main characters Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario plus all of their friends once more as, like the other Mario and Sonic Olympic Games video games, they take part in several athletic events including new ones such as Canoeing, Show Jumping and Football as well as the popular past events which include Table Tennis, Aquatics and the 100m sprint.
Nintendo has enjoyed much success in the past with both Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games and Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games. They appeal to gamers of all ages and are one of the most active video games available, taking advantage of the Wii’s motion based gaming and motion sensor technology. No other details about the game have been revealed as of yet, but if you’re a fan of the previous titles this is sure not to disappoint.
NowGamer doesn’t list any price details that have been announced so far, although a few months back we brought our readers an article about Nintendo lowering the price of their Wii bundles. Check out the trailer of the new game below.
