Mario & Sonic at the 2012 Olympic Games announced

Following earlier rumors, SEGA and Nintendo have confirmed the inevitable; Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is coming. This mascot mash-up will hit both Wii and the 3DS.

More minigame mayhem, then. New games like soccer join classics like table tennis while new Dream events put a spin on the action. We’re sure it’ll boil down to another ho-hum set of time wasters like the last two games though. Can’t Mario and Sonic go to the 3012 Green Hill Zone Olympics or something?

Guess we’ll find out in another millennium.
