Features of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014.
Participate in a whole host of events in the Winter games including recreations of many real events such as curling, figure skating, snowboarding etc.
The setting for this title is in Sochi, Russia.
Not only does the game feature the real events of the Winter Olympic games though it also features Dream Events set in the lands previously seen in Mario and Sonic titles which enable superhuman moves and skills that wouldn't be possible in real life such as mixed events where the player could jump from a bobsleigh to a snowboard to Skiis all in one flowing event.
The new advanced controls of the Wii U are utilised to offer players a more realistic feel to controls and immerse the players even more into each event.
