Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (マリオ&ソニック AT リオオリンピック Mario & Sonikku AT Rio Orinpikku?, lit. "Mario & Sonic AT Rio Olympics") is the fifth installment of the Mario & Sonic series for the Wii U, along with the Nintendo 3DS version. The game was first announced on the Japanese Nintendo Direct on 31 May 2015.[5][6]

Unlike previous games, this game was officially licensed by the International Olympic Committee for the 31st Summer Olympic Games and taking place in the host city Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.[7] Both versions of the game were released in 2016.[8][9]

An arcade version of the game was announced by Sega on 16 July 2015, which was later released in 2016.[10]

Playable Characters[]

Guests must first be unlocked by beating them in their event after completing a tournament.

Team Sonic[]

Icon Character Flag Profile
Sonic icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Sonic the Hedgehog Mario Sonic Rio Sonic Flag A blue hedgehog with a penchant for high speed, Sonic is a free spirit with a love for adventure. He despises anything that is unfair and will get into trouble to help anyone in need. For Sonic, saving the world is just another thrilling episode in his life. He's currently hoping to turn his innate speed into some quick gold.
Tails icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Miles "Tails" Prower Mario Sonic Rio Tails Flag Sonic's best friend and trusty sidekick, Tails can use his two tails to fly, allowing him to lend Sonic a helping hand with hard-to-reach places. Tails is also somewhat of a technical genius, applying his mechanical expertise to invent all sorts of vehicles and other robotic contraptions. Undaunted by Sonic's speed, he's determined to use his wits to propel himself to a gold medal.
Amy icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Amy Rose Mario Sonic Rio Amy Flag An over-enthusiastic, but good-natured hedgehog girl with a preference for cute things, sweets, and shopping. Amy's constantly trying to close the gap between her and Sonic, but the Blue Blur is one tough guy to catch. She hopes to spend the Olympic Games enjoying the sights of Rio, and is looking to bring home a gold medal as a souvenir.
Knuckles icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Knuckles the Echidna Mario Sonic Rio Knuckles Flag A red echidna that boasts some serious muscle, Knuckles is what one might call "best frenemies" with Sonic. He's a capable treasure hunter, but his straightforward and trusting nature gets him mixed up with less-scrupulous characters on occasion. He's eager to test his formidable agility and prodigious strength to the fullest in the Olympic Games.
Blaze icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Blaze the Cat Mario Sonic Rio Blaze Icon A noble princess from another dimension who is also guardian of the Sol Emeralds. Blaze has a kind heart, and always stands up for those who can't stand up for themselves. In addition to being athletic, she also has the power to control flames. After a bit of time away, she's once more crossed over from her dimension in order to rekindle old friendships and test her skills in the Olympic Games.
Shadow icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Shadow the Hedgehog Mario Sonic Rio Shadow Flag A black-and-red hedgehog who bears a striking resemblance to Sonic. While Shadow may seem like Sonic's rival, he personally hates for the two of them to be seen together. A stoic perfectionist, Shadow has a great deal of pride in his own exceptional abilities. He hopes the Olympic Games will provide him the ultimate competition - one he has no intention of losing.
Silver icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Silver the Hedgehog Mario Sonic Rio Silver Flag This silver hedgehog from the future has a complicated past with Sonic, but has been known to go on world-saving adventures with him. Silver can use his telekinetic powers to move objects or even levitate himself. He has a rather straightforward mindset, loves world peace and blue skies. The true and fair spirit of competition cultivated by the Olympic Games is what drew Silver back from the future.
Dr. Eggman icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Dr. Eggman Mario Sonic Rio Eggman Flag This evil scientific genius needs no introduction. Dr. Eggman is constantly plotting to fulfill his hopes and ambitions of conquering the world and rebuilding it into his ideal "Eggmanland", but Sonic always manages to stop him. His current madcap scheme is to sweep the medal race, then hijack the competition and turn the Olympic Games into his own Eggman-sponsored affair.
Metal Sonic icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Metal Sonic Mario Sonic Rio Metal Sonic Flag This high-performance combat robot was built by Dr. Eggman for the sole purpose of defeating Sonic the Hedgehog. Metal Sonic's metallic frame resembles Sonic, as does his speed, power, and endurance. Like Sonic, Metal Sonic plans to put his exceptional speed to the test at the Olympic Games.
Mario Sonic Rio Vector Icon Vector the Crocodile Mario Sonic Rio Vector Flag This crafty croc leads the Chaotix Detective Agency. Vector may speak in a rough tone and he may not sweat the details, but uses his powers of deduction to solve any case with dignity and respect. Vector is a true leader with dreams of becoming rich, but is perpetually broke since he often takes jobs that help people but don't pay. There's a strong possibility he'll be competing in the Olympic Games on an empty stomach.
Guests[]
Icon Character Flag Playable Event(s) Profile
Espio icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Espio the Chameleon Mario Sonic Rio Espio Flag Triple jump This straight-laced detective is the voice of reason in the Chaotix Detective Agency, but his reserved demeanor hides a burning sense of justice and a refusal to let evil have its way. Trained as a ninja, this chameleon is a master of throwing kunai, and can vanish using his Leaf Swirl technique. For Espio, these Olympic Games are merely a step along the path to perfecting his art.
Jet icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Jet the Hawk Mario Sonic Rio Jet Flag Football
Duel Football
Jet is the leader of the Babylon Rogues, and Sonic's rival when it comes to "Extreme Gear" racing. His mastery of the board is so impressive, he's earned himself the name of "Legendary Wind Master". When he's not seeking treasure, he's looking for new speed challenges. The pace and technical skill required in ball sports caught his eye, and he intends to add a few Olympic medals to his collection.
Wave icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Wave the Swallow Mario Sonic Rio Wave Flag BMX A member of the Babylon Rogues, Wave serves as the team's mechanic as well as strategist. She can't abide anyone she considers less intelligent than herself - which in her mind is pretty much everyone else. Nevertheless, she still admires Jet and serves as his faithful follower. She seems especially fond of Olympic events that involve riding on things.
Rouge icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Rouge the Bat Mario Sonic Rio Rouge Flag Beach Volleyball
Duel Beach Volleyball
A sultry bat with an air of mystery who specializes in jewels, Rouge is a brave and seasoned spy who boasts excellent footwork in a fight. Although a treasure hunter by nature, her love for gems can sometimes cause her thieving tendencies to take over. Perhaps she entered the competition in order to get her hands on a shiny and sate her lust for glitter.
Sticks icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Sticks the Badger Mario Sonic Rio Sticks Flag Archery A free-spirited badger who lives on the outskirts of the jungle. Sticks is a bit wild due to her woodland upbringing, but she's a talented hunter who can take down any prey with her trusty boomerang. She's also obsessed with things that glitter, and so has come to Rio after hearing she might be able to win a shiny medal.
Zavok icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Zavok Mario Sonic Rio Zavok Flag Boxing Zavok is the strongest of the sinister Zeti and the leader of the Deadly Six. As the last disciple of Master Zik, he's a certified force to be reckoned with. Along with his formidable physical prowess, a calm demeanor and penchant for quick-thinking makes him well-suited to leadership. His greatest joy is in improving his skills, which makes the straight-forward competitive nature of the Olympic Games quite appealing.
Zazz icon (Mario & Sonic 2016) Zazz Mario Sonic Rio Zazz Flag Table Tennis The wild and crazy member of Dr. Eggman's Deadly Six, Zazz is every bit the metalhead he looks like and his unruly and unpredictable personality makes him destructive even by Deadly Six standards. He hates boredom above all else, and will fly into a rage when held back from a fight. His competitive style is a bit more chaotic than is usually seen in the Olympic Games.

Mario Sonic Rio Waluigi Icon
Waluigi
Mario Sonic Rio Waluigi Flag

Mario Sonic Rio Bowser Icon Bowser Mario Sonic Rio Bowser Flag The vicious and egoistical King of the Koopas!

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games received a score of 65% on review aggregator website Metacritic.[13] ImpulseGamer praised the graphics and audio that were carried from the previous installments, but criticized the controls.[15] Forbes, however, did not see it as a title that can take the place of the previous Mario & Sonic titles, though still enjoyable for friends and family.[16] Other reviewers, such as Digitally Downloaded and Atomix, praised the how the game's overall sports are presented while critisizing the lack of depth in gameplay and the new Olympic festival.[14][17] Overall, the lack of challenges and depth of its large contents, with the absence of motion controls in some events, led to less than great reception. Some also felt it was repetitive and betrayed the Mario & Sonic fans.[18][19]

Trivia[]

  • This is the first game in the Mario & Sonic series to have:
    • New characters since Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games.
    • New female characters.
    • Different character rosters between each version, with Omega, Eggman Nega, Cream, Dry Bones, Ludwig, Roy, and Birdo being exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version, and Toad being exclusive to the Wii U version.
    • The handheld version having more playable characters than the console version. The Wii versions of the first three games had more characters due to the presence of the Miis.
    • The home console version of the game be released on the year of the Olympics, rather than the year before it.
    • The handheld version of an Olympic Games title to be released before the home console version.
    • Sonic speak with text-based dialog as opposed to being mute like Mario.
  • This is the first game where:
    • Wave the Swallow is playable outside of the Sonic Riders series, as well as the first time that Jet and Wave appear without Storm the Albatross.
    • Vector the Crocodile and Espio the Chameleon appear as playable characters, despite that Charmy Bee has not become playable.
    • Zavok, and Zazz are playable, as opposed to being only being boss characters in previous games.
      • This also applies to both Boom Boom for the Mario series, though he is only a side character for Rugby Sevens.
    • Rouge the Bat has appeared on the box art of a game since Sonic Rivals 2.
    • Matthew Mercer voices Espio.
    • Kotaro Nakamura voices Dr. Eggman in Japanese, following the death of his previous voice actor, Chikao Ōtsuka, in early 2015.
  • Before being playable in this game, Rouge the Bat, Jet the Hawk, and Dry Bowser appeared in the previous installments (except for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games) as rival characters while Toad and Espio appeared as referees.
    • However, Toad is still a referee in the Nintendo 3DS version.
    • Interestingly, Toad, Jet, Rouge, and Espio were supposed to appear as playable characters in the first installment but were cut for unknown reasons.
  • The Japanese version of the arcade game uses Aime cards to record progresses in the game.
  • This is the first game in the Mario & Sonic series, as well as outside of the Sonic Boom series that Colleen O'Shaughnessey voices Tails.
  • This is the first modern Sonic game where Sticks the Badger appears outside of the Sonic Boom series, though this is her second appearance outside of the series in general after Sonic Runners.
  • This is the final game to feature Laura Bailey as the voice of Blaze.
  • In Japan, this game was released on the 25th anniversary of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, as it was released on the same day the original Sonic the Hedgehog was released.
  • In the Arcade Edition's title screen, there are four characters running: Mario, Sonic, Tails and Luigi. They can be moved to the other side of the screen by running. They also jump when player jumps.
  • This was the final Sonic-related game released on the Wii U.
    • Excluding the Super Smash Bros. series, this game and the 3DS version are currently the only Sonic-related games to feature Amiibo support.
  • Oddly, most of the non-Japanese voice actors for the Sonic characters are not listed in the credits for unknown reasons. The game only credits voice actors that voice a guest in the game (as well as Colleen O'Shaughnessey as Tails and Charmy in the English credits).
    • Another oddity is that Chie Nakamura, the Japanese voice actress for Wave, is not listed in the Japanese credits for this game, despite being credited in the Nintendo 3DS version.
  • In the Wii U version, the award ceremony for the 4-man team events (4x100m Relay, Rugby Sevens, and Football) does not show the characters doing their victory animations (except for pair animations if applicable). Because of that, Toad, Diddy Kong, and Jet's Gold Medal and Silver/Bronze Medal animations cannot be seen in-game.
