Some Sonic news came out of today’s Nintendo Direct! First, and to the surprise of no one, Sonic will be in the new Smash Bros! Finally, I will be able to re-enact the awesome Sonic and Mega Man battle from the Archie crossover!
To somewhat greater surprise, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi Winter Olympics will have an online mode! The online mode will encompass four events, including a dream event that combines snowboarding, bobsledding and skiing. Players will be able to win “points” for their home country, which will be showcased in a worldwide leaderboard. Nintendo will also be offering a special version of the game bundled with a light blue Wii remote. Mario & Sonic also just launched its website, which you can find here.
