Mario & Sonic 2014 Release Date Revealed?


Sonic Lost World is only a month away now but it seems you can already look forward to getting your next Sonic fix after the hedgehog’s debut Wii U adventure. That’s right, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games (what do you mean you forgot it was coming out?!) has now seemingly has been given a release date as well, following hot on the heels of the much-anticipated main series installment.

The news appears to come from Nintendo themselves, as SSMB member CC14 the Franken Frog posted the below snapshot from their Wii U notifications, listing the game as launching on Friday 8th November. The message also indicates that you will be able to download the crossover title from the eShop on the same day, tying in with Nintendo’s current policy of simultaneously releasing new games in both physical and digital format.


Please bear in mind that, despite being a Friday – in other words, the usual day for releasing games in Europe – we can only assume this to be the US release date for the game so far, as no such listings have been found in European regions.

So, with a release date now seemingly set, will you be picking up Mario & Sonic 2014 for your Wii U? And if so – retail or download?

  1. I checked this out on the e-shop, and one of the features this game has in ONLINE MULTIPLAYER.


    1. Eh, I don’t know… let’s not be fooled by this. I mean, there have been plenty times where it has been said online multiplayer would be had, but then we just got leaderboards in Sonic games. But if there is legitimate evidence of online multiplayer, by all means…. I would absolutely adore to see that.

  2. Mario & Sonic Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 is coming on November 8th on Nintendo E Shop also Mario & Sonic Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 is the first game in GameStop is out today which re mine me Sonic Lost World is the Second game in GameStop. Also one more thing last one is new Sonic games on 2014 or be in Super Smash Bros 4 for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U well who knows.

  3. Kudos to Kabom! for the tip off 🙂
