Once bitter rivals, 2007 saw Mario and Sonic star in the same video game for the first time as they went to the Olympic games in Beijing. After that game's success it doesn't take a genius to realise that it was only a matter of time before our plumber and hedgehog heroes got together again, and that's exactly what they are doing now, to celebrate the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.

As with the last M&S Olympic outing, our two icons are not alone, they have brought a selection of characters from their adventures along too. Mario's team has Luigi and Yoshi, obviously but there are also Princess Peach and Donkey Kong too. Sonic has enlisted Tails, Knuckles, Amy and MetalSonic to help him in his attempt to lift Olympic Gold. Your favourite characters, controlled by you, will take part in a feast of party games themed on the Olympic events like snowboarding, skiing, speed-skating and ice-hockey. There are also Dream Events, which are a little less rooted in reality.

DS players can take on up to three friends at wireless multi-player gaming, using just one cartridge. In Adventure Tour story mode, you can play as Mario or Sonic in a mission-based adventure to save the Snow Spirits and The Games themselves. Once again history is being made, because while Mario and Sonic at the Olympics saw our two heroes in the same game for the first time, they were competing with one another. In Adventure Tour, for the first time in history, our famous rivals become allies to work towards a common purpose.
