Mario and Sonic at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Hits 3DS This Month, Wii U in June

MarioSonicRio6For Sonic the Hedgehog fans that have been waiting for Mario and Sonic at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, the wait is almost over. At least if you’re on the Nintendo 3DS. The game is set to come out on March 18th, according to the latest Nintendo Direct.

As for Nintendo Wii U owners, that version of Mario and Sonic at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games won’t hit store shelves until June 24th, which is oddly a day after Sonic the Hedgehog‘s 25th Anniversary. So if you are looking for hedgehog action to celebrate the blue blur’s 25th Anniversary, then maybe Mario and Sonic at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games can fill the void.

    So.. Eggman is the only human character from SEGA? Lol.

      But he’s probably the smartest one of them all intellectually, wouldn’t be surprising if Robotnik/Eggman is an NT temperament type from the MBTI.

      Sonic isn’t exactly all hedgehog, he’s a sort of semi-human humanoid with hedgehog features, he’s also biologically bi-pedle like a human.

    something strange I noticed was that the opening was using upscaled in-game models instead of the slick Marza feature grade animation we’re used to getting.

    Peculiar is all.

  3. I haven’t played any of these games since the first one on the Wii. Did they get any better?
