New info on Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games released!

Annie, Syd, and I had such a blast playing the original Mario & Sonic Olympic game. With school wrapping up soon I am really looking forward to spending more family time together and one of the things we like to do is play games together. This game should be a fun addition to our Family Games lineup!

Sega recently release a new trailer for the game and updated their website with new info regarding the game. Among the new details are the confirmation of new characters Donkey Kong and Metal Sonic. The Wii will include an Ice Hockey mode that "feels inspired by arcade hockey titles such as Wayne Gretzky on the N64, or even Blades of Steel on the NES" according to press that have played the game at e3. The game will also support the Balance Board which seems natural. I wonder if they'll include support for the Wii Motion Plus accessory? Time will tell. I'm really looking forward to playing though. Maybe if we pick up the game this fall I'll post some videos of the ensuing shinanigins.
