Mario & Sonic 2014 Gets a Box Art Update

News is a little slow these days, so when a thumbnail image of Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games surfaces online, it makes the top story. The small image doesn’t reveal anything significant, but the Nintendo Network logo helps reinforce the return of online play. What do you think?

Cool! Hopefully that means we can have a community night for this game 🙂

Looks pretty good. I hope it’s not ridiculously short like the other ones on the Wii.

I agree. The fog idea probably took 5 seconds to come up with.
Sega: Sense it’s in London, lets have fog in it!
Nintendo: OMG That’s brilliant!

I hope the story mode has Sonic Colors or Sonic Lost World styled cutscenes. Unfortunately, I’m also expecting total disappointment from this game.

I hope the game is good, but based on the previous Mario and Sonic Wii games, there may be some disappointment.

I’ve never actually played a wii version before, only the ds/3ds versions and i hope that they make it like the 2010 olympics

Don’t worry, you’re not missing anything. The Wii games are only about 2 hours long. The only DS/3DS one I played was the 2012 Olympics (which sucked). I really want to get the 2010 Olympics DS game.

Stuff I am keen to be include:
1) Sonic Characters to say what was said at the Vancouver 2009 games when the Announcer calls their names (eg. Sonic says “Faster than the Speed of Sound”).
2) New Rivals (Doppleganger’s of Bowser Jr. and Metal Sonic, Sledge Bro. and Orbot & Cubot).
3) Each Character has their own theme form an original game.

4) Dream Events on stages like what’s in this video.

5) Underwater Theme, NSMB sounds like it does improved in NSMBWii/NSMB2/NSMBU as in here: http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CDUQtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D1E1iCCo_ZRg&ei=kFMPUrCYNseviQfCyYGADw&usg=AFQjCNHSnWsO0MoipgsEu76Hrqhsf0WrzA&sig2=bsaOR0G8MBuTLFY8MUEWpQ&bvm=bv.50768961,d.aGc

I honestly don’t want any characters. The guys we have are perfect, and more characters would just take away from tuning the gameplay.

Well, they’ve been working on the game for a while now. I understand making new models would take awhile, but even 2 more characters wouldn’t affect the gameplay.
