Mario & Sonic

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games looks to be shaping up to be quite a good game. The game is looking so good that Mr. Maeda believes that the game will sell 4 million units. The Wii Version of the game will be released in Europe on November 27th, 2007 and the Nintendo DS Version will be released on the first quarter of 2008. I can’t find a set date for the game’s release in America but Game Stop says November 27th, 2007 for both versions. The ESRB has given Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games a rating of E for Everyone. Juex-France has recently posted the following screenshots.
