Using a supporting cast of characters from the amazing worlds of both Mario and Sonic, gamers will be able to compete as or against a range of lovable personalities including Mario, Sonic, Luigi, Knuckles, Yoshi, Tails and more. Innovative usage of the Wii and DS control systems to maneuver a favorite character will allow players to race the likes of Mario and Sonic down the 100m track, engage in exhilarating rallies in table tennis and churn water in a swimming heat, all while competing for the much sought after gold medal.

    ...

Now that they have been given the perfect opportunity to meet at the Olympic Games, we may finally learn who is actually faster, Mario or Sonic?

    Who's faster, Mario or Sonic? Hmmm tough decision.
    But honestly, with the long list of events at the Summer Olympics, I can see this being one helluva game. April Fool's? Let's hope not.

    Sega does have a nice relationship with former rival Nintendo now, sonic has been hanging around the wii and DS alot lately hasnt he..

    this sounds like an interesting concept...
