Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games 2010

Sega officially announced today that they are making "Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games" for both the Nintendo Wii and DS, as a sequel to last year's highly successful Beijing Summer Olympics game that also featured both iconic characters (see my post about that game here).

The new game will be released at the end of this year and will tie in with the 2010 Winter Olympics being help in Vancouver, Canada. It will feature winter sports such as skiing, skating and..... wait for it..... my favourite and I suspect yours too..... snowboarding - hoorah!! Support for the Wii's Balance Board will also be provided within the game - presumably for the snowboarding!!! - so it sounds like this will be even better than the first game (which I thought was excellent anyway).

You can watch an official trailer for the new game, showing a short clip of the snowboarding, here.

I am sooooo looking forward to this, the snowboarding will be spectacular fun! If you can't wait until the end of the year for it, you can play some free Sonic the Hedgehog snowboarding games by following these links:
