Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (マリオ&ソニック AT バンクーバーオリンピック Mario ando Sonikku atto Bankūbā Orinpikku?, lit. "Mario & Sonic at the Vancouver Olympics") is a sports game by Sega, published by Nintendo in Japan and by Sega in North America and Europe. It is the second entry in the Mario & Sonic series. The game is officially licensed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) through exclusive licensee, "International Sports Multimedia."[6]

The game is the third official crossover title to feature characters from both the Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog respective universes. It was released on the Wii and the Nintendo DS on 13 October 2009 and was the first announced video game based around the 2010 Winter Olympics.[1]

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games enables players to assume the role of a Mario or Sonic character while competing against the others in Winter Olympic events.[1]


Some of the events in the Wii game use the Balance Board accessory. The multiplayer mode offers "co-op and competitive gameplay" whereas the DS version uses its wireless capabilities.[1]


The cast consists of the full roster from the previous game, as well as some new characters. In the Wii version, VIP characters are cameos from both Mario and Sonic characters and tell the player that they have been watching them participate in events. When the player spots the character during an event, they have to pause the game and press the - button to gain 100 Star Points.

Adventure Mode[]

Sonic and Mario and toad

Toad meeting Sonic in Adventure mode.

In the Adventure Mode, Bowser and Dr. Eggman kidnap the winter spirits. Without them, all the snow in various areas melt and the Olympic Games are spoiled. Mario and Sonic set off to save them by retrieving the spirits. Along the way, they run into various old friends and enemies ready to help them or slow them down. Later in the game, it was revealed that the last stage was the only stage that was still snowing when the other five stages had nothing but grass. Mario and Sonic soon manage to defeat Bowser and Eggman and take back the winter spirits to save the games and restore peace to the world.

In gameplay, Mario and Sonic do not speak but Toad provides dialogue for them. Mario and Sonic find news briefs hidden in barrels, crates and pots which give brief snippets of information about both universe's characters. In addition, the heroes can pick up leaves from maple trees which give facts and trivia about the real world Olympic Games and famous athletes.


In January 2009, an article in the Spanish Nintendo magazine, Nintendo Acción, mentioned that a sequel to Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games was to be created for the 2010 Winter Olympics.[7] Both IGN and Eurogamer received confirmation on the games' existence, with the former stating that game would be officially announced within the following month.[8][9] Dennis Kim, licensing and merchandising director for the event, stated in February that a Mario & Sonic title was "being discussed and planned for Vancouver." Kim also stated that Vancouver 2010 and the IOC will share royalties from this game.[10]

The official announcement did arrive within the month as predicted, the game's title being given as Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games at a joint press release by Sega and Nintendo on 12 February 2009.[1]


The game was well accepted. Most of the reviews define it as "much better than the first title". All the events are unlocked from the start which is great news in terms of accessibility. The controls are also tighter and seem less random but this does mean that sometimes gameplay can be a bit too simplistic.

  • This is the final Sonic game to be released during the 2000's.
  • This game marks Omega's first non-cameo appearance on the Wii, as well as Eggman Nega's debut on a home console.
  • Super Sonic appears as an unlockable costume for the player's Mii, giving their Mii the same stats as Sonic the Hedgehog, although a pseudo-Super State for each character appears in the Dream Figure Skating event for Sonic's World.
  • Blaze's outfit for this game looks similar to her regular outfit, but slightly altered. The same applies for Amy as well, but her outfit has a few more minor changes.
  • In the DS version, Metal Sonic's eyes are red, but when he's in first place, his eyes are green.
  • If the player looks closely in the beginning of the opening cutscene in the Wii version, Metal Sonic's hands are white instead of yellow.
  • Characters such as Diddy Kong do not appear, but costumes of them are available for the Mii.
  • On the Wii box art, Sonic has a snowboard and Mario has skis, but on the DS box art, it's the other way around.
  • This is the last Mario & Sonic game to feature the 4Kids Entertainment cast from Sonic X (with the exception of Mike Pollock). However the next Sonic Game, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing will be the last Sonic Game to feature the 4Kids Entertainment cast from Sonic X (with the exception of Mike Pollock).
    • This is also the final game to feature Pete Capella, Erica Schroder, Dan Green, Jason Griffith, Rebbeca Honig, Kathleen Delaney, Davis Willis and Amy Birnbaum as the voice of Silver, Blaze, Vector, Jet, Cream, Rouge, Espio and Charmy, respectively.
  • Eggman Nega is the only character to have new voice lines in this game, as all other characters use recycled voice clips from previous games:
  • This was the only installment in the Mario & Sonic series where the handheld counterpart was released in the same year as the console until Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in 2016. (Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Wii-2007, DS-2008; Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games: Wii-2011, 3DS-2012)
  • In the DS version, if the player listens closely when trying to open the gate in Adventure Tours, it almost sounds like Amy's theme song, "My Sweet Passion".
  • The female characters have new winter outfits for the game, while the male characters do not.
  • Carter Cathcart, Vector's voice actor in Sonic X and Shadow the Hedgehog, is mistakenly credited in this game, as all of Vector's lines were done by Dan Green.
