All Mario & Sonic at the Olympics events finally revealed

There’s a slim chance we’re going to get Sonic in a Mario game, but at least we have the next best thing: Mario in a Sonic game (Yes, I’m quoting somebodies Clog here more or less, can’t remember who). After trailer after trailer, we’ve finally been given details of what events you’ll participate in. Now BFeld13 won’t have to break up future trailers to see what events will be in the game!

Hit the jump for the list of 18 events and game modes.

  • Fencing
  • Archery
  • Shooting – Skeet
  • Gymnastics – Trampoline
  • Gymnastics – Vault
  • Field – High Jump
  • Field – Pole Vault
  • Field – Long Jump
  • Field – Triple Jump
  • Field – Javelin Throw
  • Field – Hammer Throw
  • Rowing – Single Sculls
  • Table Tennis – Singles
  • Aquatics – 100m Freestyle
  • Aquatics – 4x100m Freestyle

  • Track – 4x100m Relay
  • Track -100m and 400m

God damn this sounds boring … I mean … yeah, sorry, not much of a Olympics man myself. Although I do suppose these games will play out in a similar fashion as Mario Party and like Chad said, Nintendo-themed sports games are a fun distraction at the very least.

There will also be a total of 16 characters to choose from (8 from each camp), players can design their own events circuit and there will be mini-games relating to the history of the Olympics as well. 

And don’t none of you start up that whole “How the hell can anyone beat Sonic at a race?!” argument …
