The latest game in the series, Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, was shown off today during the Nintendo Direct. After a nicely animated CGI cutscene showing off the game’s play style, new details about the game were revealed, including new events and even the Wii U release date. Apparently the events in this game actually take place in areas modeled after the structures housing the real events.
Two series-first events were displayed during the direct called Rhythmic Gymnastics Clubs and Rubgy Sevens, and the show’s host announced that the Wii U version of the new
Mario and Sonic is set to release on June 24th. Keep in mind, though, it’s first coming to Nintendo 3DS on March 18th, in just a couple weeks.
