  1. Really good roster. Not as good as Rio’s but still a good representation of both franchises. Noticed I’m one of the few that comments here, so I might as well tell you that your job is amazing and please never stop, even though you don’t show any sign of doing so.

  2. Well Zavok was already shown in The E3 Trailer during a brief Boxing clip, so not surprised by him…

  3. Great news. I will look forward to this game. I liked all the previous versions of the game. I am really a big Nintendo fan. Believe it or not, Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympics is a video game licensed by the International Olympic Committee itself. How many official games for the Olympic Games can be called? Nintendo will already have five this year, if you count for one game the version for the portable console and home. By the way, I want to mention rhythmic gymnastics. The gameplay in it is implemented according to the QTE method – you know, there are such music games where you need to press certain buttons to the beat. Good luck!

  4. I’m shocked the deadly six still have such a presence in modern stuff. Zavok is clearly the best designed but ugh he’s still kind of a mess.

    I’d take Cream over Zavok any day, though seeing Cream fight Bowser… no wait I would love that.

  5. Whether this is good or not depends on how they handle this roster. Are these extra characters usable in all events, or are they doing the whole Guest Character BS again.
